LG’s long–awaited G7 will launch in late April, with the device on sale early the following month.
That’s the word from LG itself, which has briefed media in Korea about plans for its 2018 flagship smartphone.
Like Huawei’s new P20, the LG G7 is set to feature a iPhone X–style notch at the top, along with a special button for accessing a virtual assistant and even a 3.5mm headphone slot, something many mobile makers seem keen to ditch.
Additionally, the rear camera will be a dual lens setup, each one cramming in 16 megapixels, along with a f/1.5 aperture. The latter is a star feature on major rival Samsung’s Galaxy S9.
The display is set to utilise LCD rather than OLED tech, with LG saying this will mean lower prices for consumers. A final price tag has yet to be confirmed.
LG is also priming a plus–sized version of the G7, which will feature more RAM and a larger storage option.
Previous rumours have suggested LG might drop the G7 name entirely and opt for something new in order to stand out in an incredibly crowded marketplace.
