Today, LG announced that they are cancelling the launch of V50 ThinQ smartphone in South Korea. The 5G capable smartphone from LG is the first one from the company which was being launched in the South Korean markets. As the company wanted to optimise the performance of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, the launch has been officially delayed. LG is willing to optimise the chipset and Qualcomm’s X50 5G chip, that enables the 5G network connection. Before the launch of this smartphone, LG wants to make sure about the performance of the device and reliable 5G coverage in South Korea.
Currently, LG is working with Qualcomm developer team and also the South Korean network carriers to improve the network coverage. Although the intentions of LG are right, the timing is not good at all. With LG’sarch rival Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G smartphone released in the country, LG is far behind the competition. LG will surely take more time for refinements with the Qualcomm’s chipset, but the company shared no information about the future release date in South Korea or the United States or anything else about the developments.
Thanks to the weak network coverage in South Korea and the United States, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G users are facing connectivity issues. Samsung didn’t work out the coverage plans with the cellular networks, and that’s why the users are facing the problems. LG is smart enough to work with Cellular Network carriers for stronger connectivity in the major areas and also with Qualcomm to improve the 5G network reception. That would help LG is long term as the LG V50 ThinQ users will have better network coverage over the other smartphone users till the 5G network architecture is in infancy.
