LG's next-generation smartphone, which is code-named "Judy", is said to arrive in June. As of now, there is no name for this new LG flagship smartphone, but it mentioned to codenamed as Judy. But then, as the new report comes in, LG G7 is unlikely to go official this MWC 2018, instead, LG possibly has some different plan in mind.

MANILA, Philippines - Despite announcing earlier this year that it's avoiding the usual yearly smartphone release cycles, LG is expected to unveil their new flagship in June, as reported by renowned leaker, Evan Blass fromVentureBeat. According to Blass, the smartphone will pack a Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Capable of a 800-nit brightness, it consumes 35% less power when compared to standard IPS LCD panels. To recall, last year at MWC, LG had announced its popular G6 series phones, and expectations, until now, were that the company may announce the follow up devices, aka LG G7 this year.

We can also expect a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. The panel will employ an RGBW subpixel matrix, with the "W" in there standing for white.

For 2018, LG is changing its release schedule.

Talking about the cameras, the handset is said to sport dual rear cameras with glass optical elements. A 16MP primary sensor may be coupled with a f/1.6 lens like the LG V30.

The upcoming LG flagship phone is tipped to come with IP68 water and dust resistance, which will protect the handset from both dust and water, along with a military standard rating for durability.

We have to wait and watch for more information. The device will also have wireless charging support and AI capabilities such as Camera AI. This device was also tipped to have "boombox" speakers of the stereo persuasion.
