LG’s G7 smartphone recently leaked out in a video taken at MWC 2018, and now we’re hearing more details surrounding the mysterious device that was said to have been scrapped from existence┬áin the past.

According to ETNews, LG will reportedly launch the G7 this May after unveiling it during a late-April event. Of course, this information is unconfirmed, but the phone would arrive when it’d be necessary for LG to make a move in the premium smartphone space in order to stay relevant. It’s LG’s new strategy, and it looks like they won’t be wasting any time implementing it.

As for specs, ETNews reports the G7 will ship with an OLED display with a notch cutout similar to that of the iPhone X, a Snapdragon 845 processor, a quad DAC, dual 16MP rear cameras with the same AI features found in the LG V30S, and a 3,000mAh battery. The report also mentions an LG G7 “Plus” variant that’s said to ship with more RAM and storage. We’ve seen this in the past with the V30 and V30 Plus so it wouldn’t surprise us to see LG do the same for its G series.

Finally, the report also suggests how much the G7 could go for. Apparently, it’ll start at around 100,000 won or roughly $100 more than what the G6 launched for which, by the way, was $699. It’s unclear why LG needs to increase the price, but considering how many OEMs are launching phones above the $700 price tag nowadays, it makes sense to see LG make a move there, too.

We still don’t have any details from LG to corroborate any of these rumors, but as we draw closer to next month, we’ll let you know of any.

  1. […] Speaking of announcements, HTC is expected to unveil the U12+ this May. This is actually later than when the company originally planned to unwrap the handset. According to VentureBeat, they originally aimed for late April, but development of the device has recently hit a speedbump so HTC will need to delay the launch until at least early May. If this is the case, May looks to be a pretty busy month for smartphones. […]
