The LG G7 is predicted to be released in April or May this year and every tech savvy who are familiar with LG products are looking forward to what it can bring to the smartphone arena, which is quite saturated with each brands chugging out new models on a regular basis.

First among the order of things will be the change in the name of the phone. LG is rumored to be retiring the G brand and will come up with a new name that has a better recall than the previous one. Another rumor is that the initial design and plan of the phone was overhauled since the CEO does not find it competitive with the releases from other smartphone manufacturers. So expect this new phone to up the ante in smartphone competition.

The LG G7 will come with a 6-inch MLCD+ display, 18:9 ratio, will run on Snapdragon 845 chipset and will have 64 GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. It will also have dual rear cameras, and I68 protection again water, dust and it will also be impact resistant. It will have stereo speakers, HDR imaging, and wireless charging capability. With the MLCD+ for display, it will have 800-nit brightness but with less battery consumption. Not the first one to use this display technology but still at an advantage. Rumor has it that it will also have an iris scan feature.

Another new feature of LG G7 will be the notch, which we have seen in iPhone X on top of its screen. It will house the front-facing camera and the earpiece. However, here is the twist. According to rumors, the notch in LG G7 is bundled with a software feature that will allow the user to turn on the software-based bezel. This means that a black strip will be at the top of the screen to hide the notch.

LG is still mum about their latest model and did not even unveiled it on the recently concluded Mobile World Congress and the release date of the LG G7 is still elusive as of this writing. Whatever is the reason LG seems to be hiding something up their sleeve.
