This is our first glance of the LG G7, and it looks like an iPhone X


LG all but confirmed that it would not be revealing its 2018 flagship phone at MWC 2018, so it seems to have caught many by surprise that the LG G7 was found on display in one of the halls at the event with the codename “Neo”. It was filmed by Israeli publication Ynet, who posted a video of the device.

Ynet has confirmed that the LG G7 is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 845 chip and includes 64GB of onboard storage with 4GB of RAM. A second, higher-end version of the handset will offer double the storage at 128GB and include 6GB of RAM.

LG has upped the ante in terms of design, too – the vertical rear dual camera setup is centered, with a fingerprint sensor below it. The 6-inch OLED display features an iPhone X-like notch at the top with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, making it slightly taller than the 18:9 displays on the previous LG G6 and V30. At certain times in the leaked video, the notch does disappear and seemingly become hidden in a black notification bar, suggesting users may be able to hide the notch if they’re not fans of the controversial feature.
