LG's V series to include a foldable smartphone
« on: February 25, 2019, 07:35:39 AM »

Samsung and Huawei believe foldable smartphones are ready for consumers but LG appears to be taking a slightly more reserved approach. The company is yet to confirm the chosen form factor, the phoneís specifications, or even its launch timeframe. But now one branding detail has been revealed.

Speaking to AndroidHeadlines, LGís Vice President of Marketing, Frank Lee, confirmed that any kind of foldable or rollable device from the company will most likely be released as part of the LG V series at first. The reason being that this lineup focuses more on introducing new features to consumers before taking them mainstream with the LG G series.

An example of this is the LG V50 ThinQ. While not the companyís next mainstream flagship Ė that title belongs to the LG G8 ThinQ Ė it is a premium device that sports a triple-camera setup on the rear and, more importantly, 5G connectivity. Two features that arenít widely available on the companyís mainstream option.

While LG may not have its own device prepared just yet, foldable smartphones are dominating the headlines lately and, as a result, capturing the interests of consumers. Because of this, LG has created an accessory for the LG V50 ThinQ dubbed Dual Screen.

As its name suggests, the accessory adds a second display to the flagship, essentially offering a foldable experience on a budget. Obviously, this canít be directly compared to the likes of the Galaxy Fold or Huawei Mate X but it should interest consumers who arenít willing to spend $2000 on a smartphone.
