However, select members of the media attending the Mobile World Congress has been invited by LG to check out a smartphone whose allegedly named G7 with the codename Neo. This thing could be the former G7’s design before it was scrapped and being replaced by ‘Judy’, which we have stated on our previous report.
Israeli publication Ynet has published a video (on which the images came from) that shows the ‘LG G7 Neo’ in the flesh, with that spooky iPhone X-like notch (but more like the recently announced ASUS Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5Z) and an almost bezel-less design.
Specifications and Features
If this sole video is accurate, the supposed-to-be or allegedly LG G7 (because LG reportedly also said that they’re not calling the G7 as G7 anymore) would feature a notch on top of the display, which contains the earpiece and the front-facing camera. Under that notch is a 6-inch pOLED display with a 3120×1440 resolution, which translates to a 19.5:9 aspect ratio—the same aspect ratio found in the Apple iPhone X.
Under the hood, it’s powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 4GB/6GB of RAM & and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. There’s also a 3,000mAh battery, a dual camera with a regular and wide-angle lens at the back, and the same AI features found in the recently announced LG V30S ThinQ.
The canceled or the upcoming G7?
Now the underlying question is whether this is the previously scrapped model of the LG G7 or the new one that was redesigned and that’s possibly going to be announced in June.
LG showing it in a private event could imply that we’re leaning towards the latter. Seeing that there’s no branding at the back or at the front, this is clearly a prototype and doesn’t have to necessarily resemble the final LG G7. Design changes could be made further and LG might be or might not be including the top notch at the final product. Who knows, maybe this is the one that will come into the shelves in June.
With that said, what are your thoughts about this? Let us know in the comments down below.
