LG G7: What's the story so far

LG was one of the first to release a flagship smartphone in 2017 with the G6. It's a great phone parts wholesale with plenty going for it including a brilliant camera, excellent display and all-screen design.

Nothing ever stands still in the tech world though, especially not when it comes to the star smartphones. Here we are rounding up everything we have heard so far about the LG G7. Stay tuned and keep checking back as there will no doubt be plenty of rumours over the next few months.

LG G7: What's the story so far?

LG G7: Release date

The LG G5 was announced at Mobile World Congress 2016, while the LG G6 was announced a year later at MWC 2017 and both were available to buy around April of the same year they were announced. An educated guess would therefore suggest the LG G7 will be announced during the Barcelona show at the end of February 2018 and go on sale around April 2018.

That might not be the case though. Reports from Korea have claimed the forthcoming flagship might appear a little earlier than expected in order to give the company more time to sell devices before competitor devices arrive, such as the Samsung Galaxy S9.

Apparently the LG G7 is already in development and it could be announced at CES 2018, which takes place at the beginning of January in Las Vegas. We are a long way off from these dates though and plenty could change so don't get too excited just yet.

LG G7: Design

The LG G6 brought with it a fabulous redesign compared to the modular misfire of the LG G5. Like the Samsung Galaxy S8, the G6 offers a large screen, minimal bezels and a premium, solid build.

We'd expect the LG G7 to follow in the G6's footsteps. Naturally there will no doubt be a few tweaks here and there, but we suspect many of the same principals will be followed, including the large screen in a minimal footprint format.

The G6 features a circular fingerprint sensor on the rear, along with a dual-camera setup and unlike the Samsung Galaxy S8, there is no iris scanner on the front. We wouldn't be too surprised to see a fingerprint embedded into the display for the G7, something rumoured for the iPhone 8 phone spare parts , and we'd also hope to see iris scanning capabilities included on the 2018 flagship too.
