The report from Korea states that the premiere of LG G7 / LG flagship for 2018 was scheduled for May. The most important part of the LG G7 specification and the approximate price are also given. By the way, we learned when LG V40 should appear. Both smartphones have to get screens with a characteristic cut-out.
The flagship will appear when you need it
A few years of failure of the mobile department forced LG to think. Decision-makers came to the conclusion that it would be a good idea to not hurry, and thus to present flagships (and other smartphones) when the need arose. LG no longer wants to race with anyone and let it be testified by the fact that at MWC 2018 we did not get to know the LG G7 . Koreans will show their flagship at a later date. Evan Blass mentioned June. Meanwhile, the report from South Korea gives an earlier date.
When did the LG G7 premiere?
The ETNews website claims that the LG G7 will be presented at the beginning of May . There is also the possibility that LG will present us his flagship at the end of April, but this is a less likely date. This, of course, does not mean that we will be able to buy LG G7 even then, because the Koreans have never hurried with the market premieres of their smartphones. This time the hurry would be indicated, especially since the presentation of the phone will take place two months later than usual.
LG G7 specification
As befits the flagship of 2018, LG G7 will be equipped with SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 630 graphics system. It is to be supported by 6 GB of RAM (finally!). It is worth noting that the capacity of the built-in memory will depend on the variant: the standard LG G7 will get 64 GB of memory, and the LG G7 + 128 GB of memory.When it comes to the camera, a double camera is to be located on the rear panel, in the 16 MP + 16 MP configuration. His work will be based on the artificial intelligence algorithms that were introduced in the LG V30 ThinQ. On board there will also be a battery with a modest capacity of 3000 mAh and an audio system with LG V30.
Screen with cut-out
In the previous section, I did not mention anything about the screen, because this element of the LG G7 specification needs a separate discussion. The matrix itself is to have a resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels, a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio and a diagonal around 6 inches , which is currently a common value. Producers boast that thanks to narrow frames they can offer smartphones with larger screens in the housings of their predecessors. I am curious when one of them will give us a smartphone with the same display, but in a smaller "package". More important is the fact that the top part of the screen has a distinctive notch , clearly associated with the iPhone X. I am opposing this solution, because this type of "holes" they argue with my taste. If I had to buy a narrow-hornecker , I would put a symmetrical, minimal frame above and below the screen (as in LG V30) or a total frameless fan like Vivo APEX. The cut is just a shortcut when you can not present a real smartphone without frames.
What will the LG G7 price be like?
If you thought that LG would not only change the publishing and price policy, you are wrong. LG G7 is supposed to cost the equivalent of approx. PLN 2,900, and LG G7 + the equivalent of about PLN 3,250. In theory, these are not exorbitant amounts, but they apply directly to the Korean market. I would not be surprised if it would give 850/950 euros in Europe, or 3,600/4000 zlotys . Exactly the same amount we have to pay for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + , which will become noticeably noticeable until the market launch of the flagship LG. We know this scenario perfectly and so far LG has only lost in such situations.
We also know the release date of the LG V40?
The source site also shared the approximate date of the launch of the LG V40 . Apparently, LG has come to the conclusion that the delay of the debut LG G7 will affect the subsequent presentation of LG V40, so this model may appear only in November.
This LG G7 will be defined as a copy of the iPhone X …
… and the worst thing is that I agree with this opinion . In the case of LG, I can not call it anything other than disappointment, because until now the Korean company was creating really original-looking devices. It is a pity that now she has abandoned her original visions to copy someone else's stylistic solutions. Source: ETNews
