LG G7 launch delayed; mass production to begin in March

LG G7 launch delayed; mass production to begin in March”

Unlike previous year LG G6 has opted out for Snapdragon 821 instead of Snapdragon 835, which was a bummer for the sales of LG G6. The best part here is the presence of a Snapdragon 845 processor, along with fast charging capability. The device is also rumored to come with an nearly bezel free display. It said the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, a possible reason why the G7 is likely to be released after the Samsung Galaxy S9 series that is set to receive the initial supply of the new chipset.

"We will not be anxious of the Samsung Galaxy S9 launched in March, but will prioritise the G7 differentiation", Hwang Jung-hwan, head of LG's mobile division told South Korea's ET News. The company will apparently announce the handset at their own press conference some time in March. "We heard that it was likely to be released in mid-March".

The LG G7 will likely show the phone during Mobile World Congress in February which is the same time Samsung will unveil their new S9 lineup, but LG Chief of Mobile Division said that they are not anxious about the close launch dates between the phones. Another industry source has allegedly gone as far as to commit to the exact date of 20 April. Its current flagship, the LG V30 was introduced last year and the LG G7 is expected to be unveiled at the CES this year. So what are the other upgrades we should expect to see on the company's 2018 flagship. Also, the latest reports suggest how the device may well have an OLED display and an astounding 6GB of RAM.

Other key specs which will be present onboard the LG G7 are the IP68 certification, dual rear cameras, splendid dual selfie cameras, an advanced iris scanner, and wireless charging.
