Samsung may not be the only major smartphone manufacturer that shows off a foldable device in the near future.
LG is planning to introduce a foldable phone during its CES 2019 keynote, according to well-known leaker Evan Blass. When asked about this rumor, Ken Hong, LG’s head of global corporate communications, told Digital Trends that LG doesn’t comment on rumors or speculation. But when pressed, Hong said, “Anything is possible at CES.”
CES runs from January 8-11, so we may only be a couple of months away from meeting LG’s foldable phone. Unfortunately, no details about the device are known, save for its foldability.
Way back in January 2018, we learned that LG filed for a couple of patents related to a foldable smartphone design. The first showed a phone that could be unfolded to show a large screen and when folded up, it could display info on its backside. The second design was similar, with a large screen that can be folded to into a smaller size, but when folded it would show a portion of that screen for displaying time and other info.
