All LG enthusiasts were surprised when the company suddenly buried all chances of an LG G7 arrival at the MWC 2018. According to reports, the LG’s CEO ordered a total reboot on their 2018 flagship. Our biggest speculation points that the current prototype of LG G7 was using the Snapdragon 835, and consequently would not offer competition to the Galaxy S9 series.
According to a report that was published today, the delayed flagship could hit the shores in June. An anonymous insider with the codename “Judy” says that the smartphone will sport a 6.1-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The new panel will be part of a new technology called MLCD+ which thanks to the RGBW matrix will be able to deliver an 800-nit level of brightness. The panel will also be very economical, representing a 35% energy save from the standard LCD IPS screens.
Thankfully, the new flagship will sport the all-new Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor that gets its graphical power from the newest Adreno 630 GPU. The multitasking power will be ensured by the amount of 4GB of RAM, but there is no word if a 6GB variant will also be available. The smartphone will support up to 64GB onboard storage, but thanks to the microSD support it can be further expanded. Camera wise the smartphone will sport a dual sensor on the rear, which consists of two 13MP units with f/1.6 lens aperture. Selfie enthusiasts will get covered by the addition of an 8MP sensor on the front.
The upcoming LG’s flagship is also rumored to pack IP68 certification which gives Water and Dust protection. The smartphone is also rumored to come with a military approved case, similar to the one found in LG V30, and Stereo Speakers will join the list of great features.
The premature launch of LG G6 with Snapdragon 821 made it one of biggest 2017 flops (Essential Phone still is the biggest one.). However, if these rumors are to be believed, LG will be working harder in the next months in order to fulfill all the gaps left by its last flagship.
