LG’s Upcoming Smartphone Codenamed “Judy” to Arrive in June: Report

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 would abandon a yearly smartphone release schedule and release 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 a leak and speculation, not an official announcement. Nevertheless, Blass has proven himself a reliable leaker, and his speculation is undoubtedly worth it.

Evan Blass claims the smartphone, codenamed Judy, will feature a 6.1-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and likely an FHD+ resolution. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory. IT will have IP68-rated water, dust, and impact protection and will sport a 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 called an “MLCD+” display. If this is true, the smartphone will be the first device to feature this technology, which is reportedly capable of a 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 decreased after a misstep in presuming consumer appetite for modular handsets. LG hopes to be back on track this year with the launch of Judy, which makes it a flagship-level smartphone according to the leaked specs.
