LG confirms new flagship smartphone is imminent

technicalstudio | April 2, 2018 | 0 | Mobiles

We’re still waiting on a proper flagship smartphone launch from LG this year, but it looks like we now won’t have long to wait for the arrival of the LG G7.

In a press release announcing a new partnership with K Pop band BTS, the South Korean firm confirmed the group would feature in marketing materials relating to “the company’s upcoming flagship smartphone.”

That chimes nicely with a report from ETNews in South Korea, that claims LG has confirmed the handset will launch in April, and go on sale in mid-May.

The press release from LG doesn’t provide any further information on the handset, but it’s widely rumored the handset in question will be the LG G7.

Rethinking the name

While LG G7 appears to be the most likely name for the the firm’s new flagship, a fresh rumor suggests the handset may actually be called the LG G7 ThinQ.

That’s according to renowned Twitter leaker @evleaks who tweeted “Goodbye, LG G7. Hello, LG G7 ThinQ.”

While @evleaks has an exceptional record when it comes to smartphone leaks, we’ve already seen him trip up this year, originally saying that LG would retire its G series naming convention, only to reverse that after getting more information.
