However, the Korean tech giant has now announced that the launch of its 5G phone has been postponed indefinitely.LG, in a press note, in its Korean newsroom announced that the company has postponed the launch of the LG V50 ThinQ in its home country owing to faulty 5G connectivity. “We intend to concentrate on the completeness of 5G smartphone in order to enhance customer satisfaction with 5G service which is commercialised for the first time in the world,” LG wrote in its press note, as translated by Google Translate from Korean.The company further said that it is working with Qualcomm, which has supplied its 5G-enabled chipset and modem – Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and X50 modem – and local mobile operators to optimise its 5G phone further and improve 5G connectivity before it launches the phone in its maiden market.It is worth noting that the Korean smartphone giant did not mention any tentative date for the launch of the LG V50 ThinQ. However, it has confirmed that the phone would be launched soon. With the launch of the LG V50 ThinQ delayed in South Korea, it is possible that the phone’s availability could be delayed in the global markets as well.

Three of those games will be on the road, including a trip to preseason No. 1 and reigning national champion Indiana. When asked about the tough schedule, Gardner said with a smile that he’s “excited.”Coach John Bluem said the challenging schedule is positive for the program and the players.“You want the players to be challenged and they really enjoy playing in the big games,” Bluem said. “I think it helps with recruiting…guys that come to Ohio State know we are willing to play anybody, any place, any time and we think we can hold our own.”Gardner, fifth-year senior defender Ben Killian (returning from a season long foot injury), and junior midfielder Alec Lowell have been named “Players to Watch” in the Big Ten Conference.Killian said he’s good to go for the season.“100 percent,” Killian said. “I did a lot of rehab this summer, making sure I’m strengthening everything.”Cincinnati will play Northern Illinois in the tournament opener 5 p.m. Friday.
