The LG G8 launches in March without 5G.

A new report out of South Korea outlines LG's smartphone release roadmap for 2019. The highly anticipated LG G8 flagship smartphone is scheduled to be released in March of 2019. Contrary to rumors, the LG G8 (Seal) will not have 5G, according to ETNews. LG is considering a new brand for its 5G smartphones to be released later in 2019.

The LG G8 will be an LTE smartphone, but the first LG phone with a 3D camera. As the concept image above shows, LG is supposed to minimize the notch in the LG G8.

The LG 5G smartphones (Pride) have a moving release target but could hit the US and Europe as early as March.

The first 2019 smartphone from LG will be the mid-range LG Q9 with 6.1-inch screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. 4GB of RAM, 32GB storage, and 3000mAh battery. The LG Q9 will be released in January.

LG will also release a folding smartphone in late 2019. Samsung will be not alone in 2019 with a folding smartphone. Several Chinese smartphone makers will also release a folding smartphone.

If LG will bring any of its new smartphones for 2019 to the CES is not confirmed yet. The company might hold off to unveil its new phones until the MWC 2019 kicking off on 25th of February, 2019.
