LG have been releasing new versions of their G-Series and V-Series phones yearly in recent times – and looks to continue doing so this year with the launch of the G7 sometime in spring (no date confirmed yet).
The rumours are rife with this new “G7” as even the name is not confirmed; there are stories that report “LG’s mobile division is delaying the release of the G7 in order to re-evaluate its performance and design.” We will just have to wait and see what happens in regards to these.
In terms of looks, the G7 will most likely be a more refined version of the G6 meaning an all screen front, waterproofing, drop protection and the glass and metal design. LG will either opt for a circular fingerprint sensor, or another biometric security feature following the likes of Apple with the iPhone X.
Following on from the trends of last year (previous few years in fact) of ever-growing Smartphone screens, LG look set to feature a display between 5.7inch – 6inch with a 18:9 aspect ratio instead of the previous 16:9. It is likely to be OLED and have support for HDR, also using a Quad HD+ as a minimum.
Software wise is interesting for the G7, as Samsung are rumoured to have been given first access to Snapdragon 845 – possibly paving the way for the 845 to feature on the G7. Following on from the G6 again, expect the G7 to have at least 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory with of course the microSD support for more storage. It is also expected to launch on Android Oreo in place of the previous Android Nougat.
Most of these are rumours at the moment, so we’ll have to wait and see what LG’s next moves are.
