LG earlier this year made a pledge to stop the yearly release schedule of its smartphones. It was a bold but thoughtful and understandable move for the company to launch new models only when it was needed. Shortly after the announcement, it emerged LG was already working on its next flagship.
According to a new report from VentureBeat, the phone is codenamed “Judy” internally and is expected to have a 6.1-inch 18:9 display. The panel is using a new ‘MLCD+’ panel capable of 800-nit brightness, which consumes around 35% lower battery.
The device will also have a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, dual 16-Megapixel cameras and IP68 water resistance. There will also be wireless charging and stereo speakers.
LG seems to be targetting a June release so presumably, it considers that timeframe an essential time to release a new flagship given the company’s new mentality.
