A render of what allegedly is the LG G7 has appeared and if legit, it tells us a little about the front of the phone. The bezels are trimmer than ever, and it appears that LG’s 2018 flagship will once again feature an aspect ratio of 18:9. A glance at the image also reveals the dual camera setup on the front of the handset. LG is reportedly planning on releasing the device in April, later than it had in the past so that it won’t get shut out on using Qualcomm’s new top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 chipset.
Last year’s LG G6 had to make do with the prior year’s Snapdragon 821 SoC thanks to a deal between Qualcomm and Samsung that gave the latter first dibs on the Snapdragon 835. While there have been rumors that the LG G7 will have to be powered by 2017’s Snapdragon 835 chipset, more recent speculation has the new Snapdragon 845 under the phone’s hood.
LG recently made a splash at CES when it announced that it would no longer release new handsets unless “it is needed,” whatever that means. In addition, it won’t release new models during a certain time period just to match the release dates of its competitors (mainly Samsung). The company also plans on getting rid of the “G” name for its new smartphones.
We expect the LG G7 to be unveiled in the middle of March, and as we pointed out earlier, released in April instead of March like last year, and the year before that.
