LG wasn’t a no-show at this year’s Mobile World Congress, announcing the V30s ThinQ as well as the K8 and K10, but they weren’t ready to officially announce their early 2018 flagship smartphone just yet.
Still, it appears that the G7 was at MWC this year, or at least what was originally meant to be the G7. The handset was caught on camera thanks to a journalist on the scene, and a video shows that it that offers a huge display (with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9) with minimal bezels, a pair of cameras on the back, and a fingerprint reader just below the rear cameras, which is exactly what we’ve come to expect from an LG-branded smartphone.
The LG G7 (Neo) features an OLED display which measures in at six inches and has a resolution of 3120×1440. There’s a notch at the top of the screen, too, because that’s the trend this year. Under the hood, the LG G7 (Neo) is said to boast a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor (which would line up with a previous rumor), 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage, and a pair of cameras on the back that are both 16MP shooters.
Around front there is an 8MP camera, and the battery is said to measure in at 3000mAh. One of the other key features in this handset is something called “Boom Box” which would reportedly send out more bass while audio is playing and the G7 (Neo) is set down on a surface. The handset also allegedly features DTS-X surround sound.
It’s hard to argue that this device isn’t a powerhouse in its own right, so it’s interesting to wonder LG could be adding to the Judy.
