Just because LG is shying away from typical smartphone release cycles doesn’t mean it will have nothing big to show in 2018.
Well-known leaker Evan Blass has heard that LG is planning to unveil a new flagship phone, nicknamed Judy. The star attraction, as with the G6, would be the display — though not for the usual reasons like size or resolution. Judy would have a 6.1-inch, 18:9 ratio screen whose MLCD+ technology (which includes white sub-pixels) promises a high 800-nit brightness while consuming 35 percent less power than a typical IPS LCD panel. You could use the phone outside on a sunny day without killing your battery as quickly as usual.
After that? Mostly, LG would be ticking checkboxes on what you’d hope for in a 2018 smartphone. You’d get a Snapdragon 845 processor (albeit with ‘just’ 4GB of RAM), dual 16-megapixel rear cameras with glass optics and f/1.6 apertures, stereo speakers, HDR visuals, water resistance and wireless charging. Logically, the AI camera technology from theupcoming V30 upgrade would also make the cut.
