An LG CEO has confirmed that a foldable smartphone is coming out. The manufacturer does not say that he wants to be the first with such a device. When the device has to come out, LG has not yet announced.

LG CEO Hwang Jeong-hwan said, according to Yonhap during the presentation of the V40 ThinQ smartphone, it is important that LG’s first foldable smartphone should provide added value for customers. In addition, the urge to be first would play a smaller role. Samsung and Huawei reportedly work on similar models.

LG is not the first to confirm that a foldable smartphone is coming. Samsung did that before. The specifications and details of those devices are not yet known. So it is unknown how exactly they look and whether only the screen is foldable or the entire housing. LG filed a patent application for a foldable smartphone a few years ago .

In addition to a foldable smartphone, LG will also be offering its first phone with 5G support next year. Because 5G networks are not yet active in the Benelux, they probably will not come out here. In any case, the American provider Sprint will release the LG device. A Sprint top woman recently said that the 5g smartphone gets a recognizable design, so that everyone on the street can see that it is the first phone with 5g.
