LG was at CES 2016 in Las Vegas this month to lift the lid on the new LG K7 and the LG K10, and it looks like it is getting ready to announce something new before MWC 2016 kicks off on the 22nd of February. The South Korean phone maker has sent an invite for a press event on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain. The question is, what should we expect from LG at its press event?
LG February 21 event
The image above shows us what seems to be a music box, while telling that the “play begins,” with “play” in big bold letters. The question is, what does LG have in store for us on the 21st of February? Is it the much-awaited LG G5? Unfortunately, we’re not exactly sure if LG is planning to announce a smartphone or something else. It’s possible that LG is planning to announce a new music streaming service, but we’re sure that LG isn’t going to waste an major press event for just a music streaming service. This said, we could see a new device at the event.
So will we see the LG G5 on the 21st of February? We doubt it. LG lifted the lid on the last year’s LG G4 in April of 2015 and released it in the same month. So we’re expecting the LG G5 to make its official debut in April of this year.
Last year in February, LG launched the LG G Flex 2. However, recent reports are saying that LG has no plans of launching a successor of LG’s flexible device. So the jury’s still out on what LG has in store for us at its MWC 2016 press event.
Anyway, we’ve got a little bit over a month to go before LG’s event happens, so we’re sure to come across something about the matter in the weeks to come.
LG isn’t the only manufacturer planning to announce something new on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain. Samsung is also expected to host a press event on that particular date. At Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event, the Korean tech giant is expected to officially unveil its next flagship – the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
