We all know that the South Korean smartphone giant LG is prepping for the launch of it’s next flagship smartphone, the LG G7, in the next few months. Several details regarding the handset have emerged over the past few days, and now we have a look at its possible renders, thanks to Tiger Mobiles. The leaked render shows us that the handset will have a big screen with a FullVision design and 18:9 aspect ratio. The image also hints at the G7 having a dual front-facing camera, which was being rumoured since a long time.
In addition to the dual-front facing cameras, there’s also a proximity sensor and an LED indicator on the right side of the earpiece. However, we can’t see the much-awaited iris scanner on the phone’s renders, which LG has been considering to use on the G7. Going by the leaked details revealed by the company’s official listing, it is expected that the G7 will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with Quick Charge fast charging support. The handset is will come with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB as well as 128GB internal storage space options. The device is expected to feature an OLED screen, similar to the one which LG has used in the LG V30.
Speaking about LG’s bad run in the smartphone segment over the past couple of years, we might see some changes in the company’s approach. LG’s Vice Chairman Cho Sung-jin announced at CES 2018, “We will unveil new smartphones when it is needed. But we will not launch it just because other rivals do.” He also added “LG plans to retain existing models longer by, for instance, unveiling more variant models of the G series or V series.” In addition to this, he also revealed that the company might change the branding of its G and V series smartphones if needed.
Moving onto company’s upcoming flagship, LG is expected to release the G7 in April which has been confirmed by South Korean carriers a few days ago. The handset is expected to be announced in March and not at the company’s event which usually happens at MWC. The LG G7 will compete with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, OnePlus 6, and the Xiaomi Mi 7, given that all these devices are expected to ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, dual-camera setups, dust and water resistance, and Android 8.0 Oreo.
