LG and ZTE will skip MWC because of the Coronavirus outbreak

05 February 2020
The companies don't want to risk the health of their employees and partners.

Sort by:

Maybe it's time for lg to discontinue its mobile division. Apparently, it's bleeding / hemorrhaging money ... far from profitable supposedly.

So when and how announced ti expect the V60 and G9 releases ?

Nothing new they have nothing to show just expensive devices worth maybe 1/3 of asking price.
Good move.

ZTE will participate MWC2020. There is some fake news going around. Please check the recent announcement by company;

Please correct the news asap and do not post such news in the future without checking with the company first

We need more phone competitors in order to keep the innovation of smartphones. Otherwise, Samsung will monopolize and they will just give us ridiculously expensive phones. About Iphones, they are just iphones.. it is what it is.

Sad, I hope it will not become a trend as like with car shows, brands skipping the show and doing announcements on other dates.

ZTE i can understand, but LG ? why not use staff from the EU offices ? Maybe they should just stop making phones :) it's not like it would be a huge loss :D

So coronavirus is having a tremendous impact on many tech companies. ASUS is suffering from temporary shortage of ROG Phone 2, S20's accessaries delivery is being delayed, no more leaks and rumours on most Chinese phones, and now two companies are skipping MWC because of it. What's next, Xiaomi/Oppo/Huawei delaying the announcements of their respective flagships? I don't want this to happen, of course, but now there's a possibility for it.
