The South Korean brand decided not to reveal its flagship at the MWC 2018 and set the launch for later. However, the brand at the MWC did invite a handful of media reporters through the closed-door conference and revealed few details.
Considering the images revealed at the MWC 2018, the flagship which was earlier codenamed “NEO” is now “Judy” according to the accurate tech leakster evleaks. It looks like the brand rebuilt the design from the scratch after experiencing a number of quarterly losses, from the sales of G series smartphones.
Now LG G7 (NEO) official-looking render surfaces, giving us an idea what the phone may look like upon its release. The images unveiled by TechnoBuffalo were actually drawn by Benjamin Geskin, who has a based on the relatively accurate information available so far.
It looks like the “Notch” design introduced on iPhone X initially is picking some pace in the industry as more brands are adding up the same to their newer variants namely Asus Zenfone 5 series, upcoming Oppo R15, Vivo V9 and now LG’s flagship G7 (NEO).
Considering the images, the G7 will flaunt a notch at the top of an edge-to-edge display. The bottom of the device still has some meat while the brand has successfully managed to cut off the top bezel providing a taller display that goes right till the edge.
The brand by following the footprints of Apple and Essential seems to have placed the notification bar on the left and right side, leaving space for the Notch in the middle that houses the camera and other sensors.
For a recap, the core aesthetics leaked so far suggests the device will flaunt a bezel-less design with the taller front bearing 19:9 aspect ratio along with rounded corners.
It is said to come with a 6-inch (3120×1440) OLED display, Qualcomm’s top of the line Snapdragon 845 SoC, mated with up to 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage.
