Oh dear, this is bad news. Since I first saw the V50 with DualScreen case, I began rooting for LG since I discovered just how unique and different their phones were compared to mainstream popular phones. But the one I do notice about LG smartphones is that not many people know about this. Couple that to LG's decision to sell their smartphones only in limited countries, they will keep making losses. I actually would love to see the Wing 5G officially available in Malaysia, I've been deeply rooting on buying that phone since day one.

Please downsize please!!!

Despite very good sales in the company's appliance, heat pump, and entertainment division it's unfortunately obvious that such profits weren't enough to keep LG's smartphone division afloat. That's too bad; some innovative features were found on LG phones that other companies haven't taken up on. Now might be the time to get an LG smartphone if you like. May LG phones RIP.

I never buy new "Nokia" - HMD Global stuff (because their phones are just a bought brand and no innovation) and the same with LG (if they sell the phone division) because it will be only - brand name, nothing more.
I really like LG phones for example LG G5, V20, 30...but they act like dont care anymore. Atm you even cant buy their phones in most UE countries.
Now they have chance becouse of Huawei problems ? Same Sony, they dont see it ? Large part of market share to take.

This makes me really disappointed...LG is the only brand with that quad DAC that no one else bothers to carry (don't give me Vivo with Cirrus as it's only on that stupid dongle now).

I better get a solid phone this year from Sony or ROG because the list of good and unique phones is dwindling down (worse for me because I live in the US).

It's just sad. Not saying Chinese phone are bad, but it seems like the mobile industry will be only Apple, Samsung and Chinese brands in a few years.

But i m talking about after 2 years and if phone fell down it will be more risk to every part in their phones. becz all the low quality part in their phones are less shock resist than high quality parts.

It's funny how Apple was all over the news for making money while paying low wages (or something like that) but no mention on how the chinese companies treat their own citizens.
Just Gross.
