- The follow-up to the LG G6 will reportedly launch in June.
- Codenamed “Judy”, the flagship smartphone is rumored to have some cutting-edge specs.
- This will be the first phone to launch under LG’s new release schedule of “When the time is right.”
In January this year, right after CES 2018, LG Electronics dropped some surprising news: the team in charge of the LG G7 (or whatever the follow-up to the LG G6 will be) had stopped all work to “review the new product from scratch.” After this bombshell, the company announced it was abandoning a yearly smartphone release schedule, instead releasing phones on its own terms and pace.
Today, smartphone leaker Evan Blass gave us all an update on the next LG smartphone. Codenamed Judy, the latest flagship is reportedly scheduled for a June release date.
Blass is usually reliable when it comes to news. However, this is still a leak, not an official announcement from LG, and should thus be taken as speculation and nothing more.
That being said, Blass gave some more details on the next flagship. If what he says is true, the next LG smartphone will have the following specs:
- 6.1-inch display, 18:9 ratio
- Snapdragon 845
- 64 GB internal storage
- 4 GB of RAM
- Dual rear cameras
- IP68 protection (water, dust, and impact resistant)
- Stereo speakers
- HDR imaging
- Wireless charging
Interestingly, Blass says that LG is using something called “MLCD+” for the display. If so, this would be one of if not the first phones to hit the market with this state-of-the-art display technology, reportedly capable of 800-nit brightness while consuming less battery power than traditional IPS LCD panels.
Once again, none of this is confirmed until LG drops the official word on Judy in June. But for now, take a gander at those specs and let us know if you’re excited about Judy’s arrival!
