LG is reportedly rebooting its mobile strategy as it looks to be more competitive with Apple and Samsung, which means we probably won’t get a G7. For now, fans can look forward to a revamped version of last year’s V30. After that, the company is rumored to release a brand new flagship with a 6.1-inch display.
According to VentureBeat, LG is gearing up to launch a device (codenamed Judy) that will feature a 6.1-inch, 18:9 Full Vision display, Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a dual-camera setup. The specs sound like what will likely become pretty typical for flagships in 2018.
LG will reportedly utilize MLCD+ display technology, which VentureBeat says is capable of high, 800-nit brightness while consuming less power than a standard IPS LCD panel.
Additionally, the device is said to feature stereo speakers, high dynamic range imaging, wireless charging, and more. The specs are flagship-level, but we’re not really hearing how it will differentiate itself from the crowd.
The display technology is a good start, as it suggests we can expect excellent battery life from LG’s upcoming device. But, aside from that, Judy sounds pretty standard. LG will have to do more than release good hardware, as its software is in dire need of a revamp.
LG is allegedly targeting a June announcement for its new device, with availability expected over the summer.
