    Ken Hong, LG's Head of Global Corporate told Digital Trends that, "anything is possible at CES." The 2019 CES is set to be held at Las Vegas, the US and the event will kick starts from January 8 and ends on January 11. As we know its already November so it's not a long wait for the event.

    In January LG will introduce the foldable smartphone in January but the company might not make it available for purchase as it could be a concept handset. Just to recall, in July this year a foldable LG smartphone patent was spotted by Lets Godigital.

    Referring to Samsun Blass tweeted, "Don't take this to mean that Samsung isn't also showing theirs at the show - I've read that they are - as it only means what it says, I can't personally speak to it." He also added, "To me the appeal is obvious: we're close to the limit in mobile device screen sizes, and foldable have the ability to push that limit out quite a bit."
