LG G7 Render Appears Flaunting iPhone X-Styled Notch

March 8, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Earlier this year, LG had revealed plans to shake up its release strategy, thereby handing over a delay to the earlier speculated G7 flagship. The MWC saw the launch of the slightly revamped V30 flagship, leading many to believe that LG was planning to scrap the launch of G7. But it was also at MWC that a redesigned G7, codenamed Neo was spotted behind closed doors. The highlight was the iPhone X-styled notch, and now we are having closer looks of that, thanks to the newly appeared renders of the device.

The renders are creation of Ben Geskin, who appeared to have made it solely based on the previous leaks of the device. But going by the hints, we wouldn’t be witnessing much of a difference in the main device from the renders.

As said before, LG G7’s main highlight is the notch that seats atop the display to array front-camera along with other sensors.  Like it or not, the notched display is beyond any doubt the technology that will get flourished in smartphone displays this year.

Despite being introduced by Essential, an Android smartphone, it’s the iPhone X that really ignited the desire among other manufacturers to jump on the bandwagon. And that makes sense for why manufacturers are bringing in a broader notch sans the presence of facial recognition sensors like in iPhone X.

In addition to that, the G7 is also featured sporting a vertically-arranged dual-camera system unlike a horizontal one. The fingerprint sensors are placed right beneath the camera setup.

Details about the inside specifications are sparse at the moment, but being a flagship device, we can expect the G7 to house Snapdragon 845 SoC with a minimum RAM of 6 GB. LG is also said to be tweaking the display resolution in G7 with a longer aspect ratio. The 6-inch display is supposed to pack a resolution of 3120×1440 pixels, longer than the usual QHD+ resolution that translates to an aspect ratio of 18:9. To recall, LG was also one among the first to have embraced the now-trendy 18:9 aspect ratio.

LG hasn’t yet responded to the queries, but it is believed that the company is preparing to take the lids off its revamped flagship by around June this year. That’s still a long way left, and chances are that flagships from other manufacturers including One Plus and Huawei might arrive even before that. It needs to be seen how LG would manage to spawn interest with its notch amidst this influx.
