We already know that LG is seriously preparing to launch their upcoming flagship for 2018. A few days back, the company was rumored to have concluded plans to rebrand its flagship G series.
Given that the G6 was announced in February at the MWC, it will be safe to assume that the successor/ LG G7 will also get unveiled around the same time. However, fresh information from South Korea indicates the launch could happen much later than that. According to an unconfirmed report, a Korean carrier official is alleged to have stated that the upcoming device will be available in April. Another source adds that the phone will be unveiled in the middle of March instead of the MWC (like the G6).

Lending more voice to the expected launch date, a separate source claims the device will be launched in Korea on April 20, and if that stands, the phone will then find its way to Europe and the US a couple of weeks later similar to the rollout pattern of the G6.
Not much has been revealed about the upcoming LG G7, but a new patent which was reportedly filled by LG suggests that the LG G7 and other LG phones coming later in 2018 and beyond will feature an advanced iris scanning technology that seems to do more than just unlock the phone. The report has it that the filling not only entail the use of biometric authentication through an iris scanner as normal but can also adjust its reading based on ambient light, for a start, to allow for variations in pupil size and to make sure you can always use the scanner under any lighting condition.
