LG G7 To Release Earlier Than Planned: January 2018 Expected

LG and Samsung have been at war since as long as memory serves us. The two South Korean giants have been competing in the same market space for a really long time. Both global brands, competing in the same markets, and for similar products. 2017 has been a great year for LG, as this is their best year ever when it comes to the smartphone business. The company is now looking forward to gaining an upper hand next year, and this includes possibly launching the LG G7 a month in advance.

Current reports indicate that the 2018 LG flagship, the LG G7 will be coming out about two months before the Samsung Galaxy S9 is announced. LG has usually announced their flagship phones at the Mobile World Congress events, but they might take a break from this cycle in 2018. Reports indicate that research and development units of LG are already working on this phone since a month now.

Moreover, the current word in the markets is also that the upcoming LG V30 too, might get an early launch. Previous reports indicated the phone to come out at the IFA 2018, however, LG might pull the trigger earlier and have the phone come out in early August. This would give the phone get an edge over Samsung’s upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.

The LG V30 is expected to run on the Snapdragon 836 processor and might be the first phone to come out running the Android O OS out of the box, similar to how LG V20 was last year.

While these are unconfirmed reports, LG has maintained a very neutral stance when asked about the launch of the LG V30 and the LG G7.  “Nothing has been decided on the launch schedule of the upcoming phones,” a company spokesperson said. While no information on the LG G7 is out yet, we know that Samsung has already started off on the development of their 2018 Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones.
