Earlier this year, LG launched its flagship LG G6 smartphone. The company tried to get ahead of the competition, such as Samsung, but it seems that in the process they might have been forced to use 2016’s Snapdragon 821 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 835, but that’s something they won’t be repeating next year.

In a report out of Korea, word on the street has it that both LG and Qualcomm have already started to work together and that come 2018, the LG G7 (or whatever it will be called) will be packing Qualcomm’s next-gen flagship chipset in the form of the Snapdragon 845, whose details have recently leaked online.

The Snapdragon 845 is rumored to be manufactured based on the 7nm process which is said to be 30% more powerful than this year’s Snapdragon 835, which if true should give the LG G7 quite a boost in power compared to the LG G6. We should point out that the Snapdragon 821 used in the LG G6 is by no means a slouch, but we guess from a marketing standpoint we’re sure that there are probably quite a few customers who would prefer if they could future-proof their purchases by getting the latest tech possible.

In any case we’re probably still a bit too early to start talking about the LG G7, especially with the LG V30 still having yet to be announced, so take it with a grain of salt for now.
