Report: LG's 2018 flagship to feature 6.1-inch screen, SD-845 inside; June launch possible
LG's 2017 flagship, the LG G6
Under the hood will be a Snapdragon 845 mobile platform carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 630 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. On back will be a dual camera setup (13MP + 13MP, both with f/1.6 apertures), and the device will carry an IP68 certification rating. The latter means that the unit can be submerged in nearly 5-feet of water for up to 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. The phone will also have a case that meets military specs, similar to the LG V30, and stereo speakers will adorn the model.
Last year, you might recall that thanks to Samsung's deal with Qualcomm that gave it the exclusive first dibs on the Snapdragon 835 chipset, the LG G6 was powered by the Snapdragon 821. This year, LG isn't having any of that! Instead of launching before the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, it will be released after the new Samsung flagship models,and will be powered by Qualcomm's top of the line Snapdragon 845 mobile platform.
