After the CES 2018 event, last month, South Korean manufacturer LG announced that the team in charge of the LG G6 successor had stopped all work “to review the new product from scratch’. That’s not all, after that it announced that it will be abandoning a yearly smartphone release schedule and will be releasing devices on its terms and pace instead.
Cut to the present, reliable informer Evan Blass gave an update on the company’s new smartphone release. According to him, the next LG smartphone is codenamed Judy and is scheduled for a June launch date. Before heading into the details let us remind you this is just a leak and speculation, and certainly not an official announcement. Nevertheless, Blass has proven himself to be a reliable leaker, and his speculation is certainly worth
Evan Blass claims, the smartphone codenamed Judy will be featuring a 6.1-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and likely an FHD+ resolution. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 coupled with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory. IT will have IP68 rated water, dust and impact protection and will sport dual camera setup on the rear. Additional features include Stereo speakers, HDR imaging and Wireless Charging.
Blass also mentions the smartphone will have a new display technology, something called “MLCD+” display. If this is true, the smartphone will be the first device to feature this technology which is reportedly capable of the brightness of 800 nits while consuming less battery power than traditional IPD LCD panels. Now LG is known for its innovations in display technology; the OnePlus 5T carries a display from LG.
The previous year especially 2016 was not great for the company. The company’s financial status and sales figures went down after a misstep in presuming consumer appetite in modular handsets. LG will be hoping to be back on track this year with the launch of Judy, which make it a flagship level smartphone according to the specs leaked.
