However, the firm's next true flagship won't be here until June, new reports have claimed. This may well be the LG G7 - albeit not branded as such. A new leak now says that LG will launch its next-generation flagship in June 2018 with Snapdragon 845 chipset under the hood.
The report appears to fit with LG's surprising comments earlier this year, where it suggested it was going back to the drawing board with the G7. If this is true then we might not see any G series smartphones anymore.
Specification wise, Judy is tipped to come with Qualcomm's current most powerful processor - the Snapdragon 845 coupled, with 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. On the camera front, Judy is said to sport a dual rear camera setup with two 16-megapixel image sensors with each supporting f/1.6 aperture and glass optical elements. They have taken a strategy to launch a phone when needed. The 2018 flagship smartphone is codenamed, LG Judy. It's not clear what the resolution will be, however a person who has supposedly been briefed on the matter told VentureBeat that it will employ a new type of display, an MLCD+ panel with an RGBW matrix. This new panel is said to be capable of high, 800-nit brightness while consuming 35 percent less power than standard IPS LCD panels, Android Police has learned.
The upcoming LG flagship phone is tipped to come with IP68 water and dust resistance, which will protect the handset from both dust and water, along with a military standard rating for durability.
There's no word on its pricing, but we should hear more about this smartphone in the coming months.
Other key specs include stereo speakers, support for HDR imaging, wireless charging, digital assistant, voice recognition and AI-inspired camera capabilities.
