LG G7 (Neo) Spotted at MWC With Snapdragon 845 and a Notched 19.5:9 OLED Display
LG's performance last year, when it came to selling smartphones, was dismal, at best. The LG G6 is an excellent device, but somehow it didn't click with the fans. The company decided that their devices needed an overhaul and it was speculated that their 2018 flagship would ditch the "G" tag altogether. They went a step further and scrapped the development G7 altogether, presumably for a completely new phone. In an unexpected twist of events, an article and video shot by Israeli publication Ynet at MWC 2018 shows a phone called the G7 (Neo).

The yet-to-be-released LG device was first spotted by Evan Blass, who tweeted out that this "may be the device LG scrapped in favour of Judy." Judy is the codename of the supposed new LG flagship, but this G7 (Neo) has some very interesting specs itself. It comes with a 6-inch 3120x1440 OLED display (yes there's a notch up there), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of storage. It also comes with a dual camera setup with two 16MP sensors (main one at f/1.6, wide-angle one at f/1.9), an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 3,000mAh battery.
The display has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, which is the tallest yet on an Android device. The fingerprint sensor is on the rear as expected, with the camera setup now vertical (it was horizontal on the G6 and V30). Other features include DTS-X surround sound, as well as a "Boom Box" that will add more bass when the phone is placed on any surface.
By the looks of it, there appears to be nothing wrong with the LG G7 Neo. It's a solid device overall with promising specifications and a notch (because what's a phone without a notch, right?). I suppose that LG has something better in the works. For all we know, this could very well be the LG G7, or whatever LG chooses to call it. I guess we'll find out in December.
