"LG To Launch Flagship With 6.1" Display & Snapdragon 845 In June


The device will also have IP68 certified water and dust resistance along with military-grade durability.

As you can imagine, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor is set to do the heavy lifting, but today's report says it'll only have 4GB RAM.

LG's next-generation smartphone, which is code-named "Judy", is said to arrive in June.

This new design is likely to underpin LG's next few flagships, with the firm vowing to release more variants, rather than releasing brand new designs every year just to keep pace with competitors.

This new smartphone, LG Judy is probably the successor of the LG G6, which will not be named G7 as it was firstly reported.

Most probably, the rumoured smartphone will not be monikered as LG G7 as the company already confirmed a new mobile strategy starting this year.

The LG phone, codename Judy is expected to be a massive device and come with a 6.1-inch screen and 18:9 Full Vision display.

Talking about the cameras, the smartphone will be sporting 16MP dual rear cameras with f/1.6 aperture. This means no plug-and-play accessories, as was the trend with the LG G5, and a slightly longer display than the LG G6. Even other Android manufacturers will be opting for the same Snapdragon 845 chipset for their 2018 flagship devices. It's not clear what the resolution will be, however a person who has supposedly been briefed on the matter told VentureBeat that it will employ a new type of display, an MLCD+ panel with an RGBW matrix. The report also states that there could be a "Plus" or "S" model as well with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM combo. Judy is also expected to come packed with features including - Wireless charging, digital assistant, voice recognition, camera AI and also stereo speakers.

This added efficiency would be key, as we've found that both the LG V30 and LG G6 fell down on battery life versus the competition.
