We already know that the successor to LG’s G series, the LG G6, will not be receiving Qualcomm’s latest flagship SoC — All thanks to Samsung hoarding the chipset. While the 821, the rest of its processing package, and its new features will still make the G6 a competent offering, let’s face it, we all want the latest hardware if we were drop serious dimes on a flagship device. The rumor mill has started to churn out information that we could be seeing 2017’s SoC darling, however, on the LG V30 instead with 6GB of RAM and an updated quad DAC for all you audiophiles out there.
It’s no secret that the LG G5, that banked a lot on its so-called modularity and its friends, had a bit of a disappointing outing last year and that the LG V20 saw more success. Could this mean that LG may be changing the status quo and turning the V series into their flagship lineup instead? Or could this merely be a product of bad timing and the lack of supply of the Snapdragon 835?
These are just rumors and rumblings in the tech scene, and we shouldn’t have to point out that nothing is set in stone until its official release. But look at that, we just did.
