MWC, coronavirus, blah, blah… yeah, the largest mobile phone convention in the world was taken out by an invisible organism, leaving everyone involved to fend for themselves. So we’re looking at a trickle instead of a torrent of info. Part of that trickle is LG’s new flagship smartphone, the LG V60 ThinQ, which… let’s be fair, they were gonna out on their news portal ahead of time anyway. 

Today in Midrand, Johannesburg, LG officially opened its new offices and experience area. LG’s in for a few changes in the South African market. One of those changes is a move out of Germiston, a space the company had occupied for a substantial length of time, and a split for the company’s head offices and manufacturing division. 

We’re used to LG releasing its phones more than once — there are a few instances of that in the company’s history. The next phone to get another release is the third (fourth? No, third) edition of the LG G8 — the LG G8X. Which, before you ask, is different from the LG G8S. 

LG’s teasing what appears to be a triple-screen smartphone, which will be unveiled at this year’s IFA in Berlin. But, before you got all ‘LG’s got a folding phone’ on us, it looks as though the additional displays will appear courtesy of a smartphone case. Or a design that makes the device look like it’s got a smartphone case on.
