The LG G7, G7 Plus launch pushed to May

The LG G7, G7 Plus launch pushed to May

LG was rumored to showcase its flagship G7 at MWC last month but the Korean company dropped the launch at last moment. The company stated that it was doing this because it wanted to launch new phones according to market demand rather than according to a pre-determined schedule.

Now ETNews reports that LG is planning on launching the G7 in May in South Korea.

The concept renders of the G7 have suggested that the smartphone will look like an iPhone X clone. Further, the LG G7 may also sport a vertically mounted 16-megapixel dual-lens rear camera along with a Quad-DAC audio system.

FCC is accusing startup for launching satellites without permission
It is likely the first time a private organization has launched spacecraft without the explicit approval of any government. USA regulators have accused a small Silicon Valley startup of launching satellites without permission.

Meanwhile, other specifications listed for the upcoming LG G7 are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and upgraded RAM and internal storage. The handset is said to pack a 3000mAh battery under the hood. Just like the LG G6 Plus, the G7 Plus is likely to have more native storage space than the G7.

It's also possible that LG will push back the release of its V40, similar to the LG G7. According to reports, LG's mobile division chief found the prototype model did not offer any major improvements and has asked the engineering team to start from scratch. Moreover, the G7 Plus could feature more RAM as well.
