LG, the South Korean electronics giant, has created a name of its own on the global electronics market. Their products are used worldwide. They manufacture quite a variety of electronics one of which are smartphones.

A lot of rumors have been doing rounds from time to time about the new flagship from LG.

If rumors are to be believed, LG is all set to come up with a new smartphone to be released under its ‘G’ series.

The new phone will be a follow-up to the LG G6 which was launched last year. Despite the excellence in performance G6 was overshadowed because of the competition. So, LG is concerned on making it strategically good for the market this year around.

Supposedly, the device will have an OLED display which apparently is brighter than standard IPS LCD screens.

The display will be of 19.5:9 aspect ratio with the screen standing 6-inch tall. The length of the phone might not sound practical enough but the narrower width and minimal bezels will make holding the phone convenient.

A lot has been said as to what the outlook of the G7 will be like. It is said to sport an ‘optional’ notch display. Yes, an optional notch. This time it is the best of both worlds. The notch will be inculcated as its software feature. The user can keep it or just change the settings. That is what we call versatility.

The LG G7 will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, which seems to be a common feature in the smartphones of 2018. LG is said to be working with QUALCOMM for the chipset.

The latest version of Android, the Android P is expected in the handset. One of its features is that it allows moving the icons. This means more screen space as per the user’s convenience.

In the camera department, the LG G7 will have dual rear cameras 16-megapixels each. However, there are still no leaks regarding the front-facing camera of the G7.

We will be able to know how much of it is true only once the phone is out in the market. If the rumors are true, the phone seems pretty promising with the OLED display and the Snapdragon 845 SoC. Let’s wait and see if the LG G7 is what we are expecting it to be. The rumors already have our hopes high!

The smartphone might cost around $729 and above.
