LG is bringing its next flagship smartphone to the Big Apple.
The Korean consumer electronics conglomerate sent out a save-the-date note for its LG V40 ThinQ launch event, to be held Oct. 3 at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT in New York.
There's little to the message beyond the tagline, "Take 5." Is the smartphone going to be smart enough to give us a break?
LG has been pushing artificial intelligence as one of the key selling points to its family of products, from refrigerators to robots, and the ThinQ line is no exception. The company's flagship smartphones, however, continue to be overshadowed by larger Korean rival Samsung and its Galaxy S franchise. Likewise, Chinese players such as Huawei and OnePlus have drawn consumers away from its products.
