The unannounced LG G7 now has an app on Google Play: LG Wallet

LG today released Wallet - a new Android app presented as a "securemobile payment application for LG's premium mobile handsets." What'sreally interesting about this app is that, according to its description, it can be used only on an LG G7 (at least at this moment).



 



Of course, an LG G7 doesn't exist yet, or not commerciallyanyway. We are expecting a G7 to be introduced in the coming months (as asuccessor to last year's G6), but the device will likely be released under adifferent name, as LG is looking to refresh its flagship phone naming scheme. Mostprobably, the description of LG Wallet will be soon updated, or the app isgoing to be pulled from Google Play altogether, being re-launched only afterLG's upcoming flagship handset is announced.  



 



Right now, the LG Wallet app doesn't really work, but youmight be able to install it on phones like the LG V30 - check out the sourcelink below to download it.



 



By the looks of it, LG Wallet will replace thealready-available LG Pay service (the new app's Google Play icon actually readsLG Pay instead of Wallet).



 



We'll find out more about LG Wallet and the G7 (or whateverits final name turns out to be) once the new smartphone is officiallyannounced. Most probably, LG will unveil its next-gen handset in late February at MWC2018. Stay tuned!

Can it mintage like Samsung Pay? if it can't then I don't see LG got any chance in mobile space. Samsung Pay is mobile payment to beat.

Not too many people buy LG anyway. So its okay. The last truly great phone from LG was the G2. They lost their way after that.

I would disagree as the V20 was the last everything included(besides water resistance and wireless charging) phone. Not weak in any particular area.

I cannot agree more. V20 is currently the most complete phone at the moment.

Even though you can swap out a battery, but that department is weak. I sold my V20 3 weeks after I owned it(Bought it brand new). The battery just didn't do it for me. I have the V30 right now, and I would say that's the complete LG at the moment. I do agree the LG G2 was a great device. G6 is also a very good all-around device.

Yes it can. LG is also Korean, and in Korea they do not use NFC paypass terminals. Which is why Samsung MST payments are the most used in Korea, LG pay also had to develop their own MST tech in order to rival MST. However i doubt that LG will be able to get foreign banks on board. Even Samsung is having trouble. In Canada they only managed to get 2 of the big 5 banks on board. LG most likely will be DOA. The only place I can see it suceed is in Korea but even then Samsung, payco, and kakaopay have the lead.

I saw in one of your posts that LG has buried the G series and the last one was the G6. Now you are talking about the G7.

If you had actually read the article, you wouldn't have posted this.

@Pigaro in the article it says : "but the device will likely be released under a different name," It is on the article. Also you can see that LG wrote "LG G7"
