Earlier this month, LG confirmed that their next flagship smartphone is on schedule. However, we haven’t got to know about the device name or the launch date. Based on the rumors, LG might skip launching the successor to last year’s LG G6 at this years MWC. A few leaks also revealed that the company will actually launch the LG V30+ α (LG V30+ Alpha) at MWC 2018. Now, the company has officially confirmed that an upgraded LG V30 is going to be unveiled on the MWC show floor.
At the LG’s Innofest event in Cape Town, CY Kim, Managing Director for LG Electronics South Africa, also told the reporters that the LG G7 will get a little bit delayed. While Samsung announced to unveil the Galaxy S9 devices on February 25th, Huawei will be holding a separate launch event for the Huawei P20 smartphones on March 27th in Paris.
