Only select members of the media were able to see it
LG had a lackluster exhibit for MWC 2018 by only presenting the V30s ThinQ, which is essentially a V30 with AI tricks. However, for select lucky members of the media, it turns out LG had something more in tow. In fact, the phone that was supposed to be the LG G7 made a stealthy appearance at MWC 2018.
According to a report by YNetNews, LG had a working G7 at MWC 2018 but chose to show it behind closed doors. Codenamed “Neo”, the working unit is the canceled G7, which is replaced by an all-new phone codenamed “Judy”.
For the specs, the G7 has a Snapdragon 845 processor, 64GB or 128GB internal storage, 4GB or 6GB RAM, and a 3000mAh battery. It’s dual rear cameras are all-new 16-megapixel units, both sporting a f/1.6 aperture. The primary camera has optical stabilization, while the secondary camera is a wide-angle lens. The front camera is an 8-megapixel snapper.
What’s interesting with the G7 is its display. While it follows the trend of sporting a notch, the G7’s 6-inch OLED display has a 18:5.9 aspect ratio and a 3120 x 1440 resolution, which roughly translates to a 4K display.
Aside from the G7, Evan Blass shared that his source told him that a V35, Q7, and a new smartwatch was presented as well during the behind-closed-doors meeting.
As to why LG chose to not publicly present the G7 remains unknown, we now have a working idea of what they are up to come June.
