Earlier this week, the company announced that it would launch a new variant of the V30 at MWC 2018 that will kickstart starting February 26 in Barcelona. Now, however, a new report suggests that the company is planning to unveil its next-gen flagship which is codenamed as “Judy.”
The smartphone is said to arrive in June this year. According to Evan Blass of VentureBeat, Judy will be a different device and won’t be called as G7. Blass says the smartphone could boast a 6.1-inch 18:9 display with support for HDR10 and will sport a new type of display technology. further, the MLCD+ panel with white sub-pixels will provide 800 nits of brightness that will consume less than 35 per cent of power than a regular LCD display. Comparatively, the G6 had a 5.7-inch 18:9 display with a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels.
The report further suggests that the device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset clubbed with 4GB RAM. The RAM here seems to be on a lower side, given the fact that most premium phones out there comes with at least 6GB RAM. The Judy could sport dual 16MP rear sensors with f/1.6 lenses. Also, the phone will support wireless charging; feature “boom sound” stereo speakers, IP68 durability, voice assistant and camera AI.
Previous rumours claimed that LG might redesign the G7 flagship smartphone from scratch. The G7 was slated to launch at MWC later this month, with a release date for sometime in March. It is also believed that the company is considering to rename its G-series.
Besides, the company’s Vice Chairman and CEO Jo Seong-jin, earlier said that they will not launch new flagship smartphones “just like other rivals do.”
