LG G7 Leaks in New Renders, Confirms Dual Front Camera

We’re only 12 days into 2018 but we’re already seeing a number of major smartphone makers look to steal a march on their competitors by announcing / unveiling / launching their flagship devices of the year.

Once such firm is LG, who have accidentally revealed some key information for their upcoming high-end mobile phone on the official LG website. Going by recent trends, the South Korean firm might release its 2018 flagship, the LG G7 imminently, with March looking the most likely launch month.

Now amongst all these speculations around LG’s to-be-launched device, a render of the supposed G7 has been spotted online. The render reveals the front side of the device, which confirms an 18:9 ratio bezel-less screen coupled with a dual set of front cameras. Previous rumours also indicated that the LG G7 would feature dual front-facing cameras and this newly leaked render of the purported flagship cements those previous claims.

Looking at the image, it appears that the front panel of the LG G7 will have a full-screen design and selfie camera with a number of sensors and receiver grill. A fingerprint sensor will be fitted on the rear side along with dual rear camera setup.

Under the hood, the LG G7 is anticipated to house a Snapdragon 835 chipset combined with 6GB of RAM. The phone will come with a Quick Charge 4.0 feature.

No other details about the LG G7 are available at the moment but with leaks coming thick and fast more information about the phone is expected in the next few weeks and we expect it to be available in the UK on pay monthly contracts and SIM free plans. Stay tuned for more updates.
