LG could wait until after Mobile World Congress (MWC) to unveil its next–generation flagship smartphone.
Reports from the company’s home country of Korea suggest LG will wait until March to launch its new handset.
The move is being seen as a bid to dominate the tech headlines and not get lost in a sea of comparisons with Samsung’s Galaxy S9, which is due to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress event next month.
Interestingly, the same report suggests the device won’t be called the G7, with LG instead opting for an as–yet–unknown two-digit name.
Apparently this is because consumers may think the G7 sounds older and therefore less feature laden than the Galaxy S9 or iPhone X.
The new LG flagship is rumoured to feature an updated Qualcomm processor, as well as an iris scanner to put it on a par with Samsung and Apple’s best devices.
There’s no word on whether it will feature a dual lens camera.
LG had a tough 2017, so will need to pull out all the stops this year if it wants to compete with Apple and Samsung.
