While LG was initially expected to unveil its new flagship smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2018, the company launched a slightly upgraded model of the V30 instead and has kept us waiting for the LG G7. According to a new report out of South Korea, LG is going to launch the G7 flagship smartphone next month. The report also brings some details about the specifications of this device.
It was reported a few weeks ago that LG had actually decided to go back to the drawing board for the G7. This suggested that perhaps the company was rethinking the entire device.
The report claims that the LG G7 launch is going to take place in May and that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chip paired with 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard storage.
It may also feature a 16 megapixel dual camera system at the back with the AI features that LG introduced with the V30S last month. The battery is expected to be 3,000mAh much like the one in the Galaxy S9.
No word as yet on the precise release date, but word on the street is that the LG G7 is going to cost slightly more than its predecessor. It’s expected to be priced between $850-$950.
None of this information has been officially confirmed by LG at this point in time so best take it with a grain of salt.
