LG’s G7 was never scheduled to launch at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). But a concept version of the Korean company’s next–generation smartphone was spotted backstage at the mobile industry gathering, allowing us a sneak peek at how it may look.
Dubbed the LG G7 Neo, the prototype phone features a notch design, giving it a similar look and feel to Apple’s iPhone X.
Internal specs are said to include the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, with the smaller 64GB device packing 4GB of RAM and a larger, 128GB device running with 6GB of RAM.
The display is said to clock in at 6–inches with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Round the back, there are a pair of dual lens cameras featuring 16 megapixels.
LG has said that the G7 Neo is merely a concept and is not the final version of its new flagship phone.
A launch date is expected in the spring, although the company has not revealed an exact date for any media event.
Interestingly, some tech-watchers have claimed that the G7 Neo may not come with a notch design, with the model spotted at MWC an early version that will not be officially released.
LG opted to leave the MWC floor to its key rivals this year, with Samsung leading the line with its new Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
