LG G7 rumored to launch in May with a hefty price bump

LG G7 rumored to launch in May with a hefty price bump”

LG Electronics is reportedly planning to launch its latest flagship smartphones, allegedly named the LG G7 and LG G7 Plus, in May this year.

That would be 15 months after LG unveiled the LG G6, last February, but in keeping with LG's previous announcement that it isn't sticking to a strict yearly release cycle.

ETNews also reports that an LG G7 Plus may release alongside the standard G7. According to ETNews, the LG G7 could cost 100,000 won more than the LG G6 in Korea (which retailed between $600-$720 in the United States depending on your carrier). The Nokia brand, now running Android, is also flooding the global market with phones in all price categories, which further puts the squeeze on LG, a brand that has had trouble with meaningful innovation. Apparently, an event could unveil the phone as early as late April with sales of the phone starting late in May.

The storage capacity for the LG V30S ThinQ and the LG V30S ThinQ Plus stand at 128 gigabytes and 256 gigabytes, respectively, compared with the original editions that held 64 GB and 128 GB. The smartphones have 16-megapixel and 13-megapixel dual cameras on the back, along with a 5-megapixel front shooter. In terms pricing, the LG G7 is said to cost a bit more than its predecessor, at least in Korea.

Interestingly, the report also adds that the LG V40 may see its release timeline getting delayed and launch in November 2018 instead of than the traditional September launch window thanks to the LG G7 launch.

Meanwhile, other specifications listed for the upcoming LG G7 are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and upgraded RAM and internal storage.
