LG G7 listed on official website, may pull a G6, and launch with Snapdragon 835
Well, well, well, what do we have here, LG, are you mentioning a certain yet-to-be-announced flagship on an official website? The unveiling must be near, if LG UK has already listed one "future LG G7" as featuring Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0 technology. Wait, what, will the G7 pull a G6, and launch with Snapdragon 835 instead of 845?

Not so fast. While the fast charging tech listed for the G7 here is not Quick Charge 4+ that we detailed not long ago, we doubt that LG will launch its seasonal flagship with, say, 835. It's just that most phones still support some equivalent of Quick Charge 3.0,  so 4.0, and a Snapdragon 845 to go with it, is an equal possibility, too. Granted, Qualcomm lists 4+ under the Snapdragon 845 specifications roster, but the first phone announced with 4+, the Nubia Z17, actually has a Snapdragon 835 inside, so obviously manufacturers can mix and match. 

Still, we'll be very curious to gauge what chipset will G7 come with, given that both the 835 and 845 are made with a 10nm process, just that the 845 has the second generation of it. Given that Samsung is rumored to hog all the initial supply of 845s, LG might have been put in a tight space if it wants to launch the G7 concurrently with the Galaxy S9 at MWC next month. What do you think, will LG G7 pull a G6, and come with 2017's finest, instead of Snapdragon 845?

That be fine if it gets here now, not in 3 months when the s9 is already out.

The likelihood that they will go 835 is slim I reckon. LG have a habit of not making the same mistake twice (aka G6) However, maybe the G series will drop the "flagship" moniker and the V series will be the yearly flagship instead? Have to admit, the V30+ I have is a sweet phone. definitely the best LG has ever made

I Agree with you but G2 was their best!

The G6 would've been the same. They announced it early but then in my country (which is part of the UK) it wasn't even available until after the S8 was out.

835 is more than enough.

Sure but the 845 is is coming with some nice features and greater efficiency. As a matter of fact speed is the last thing you should consider when looking at new SOCs in this day and age.

Efficiency doesn't mean all that much if Google will still drag their feet at issues brought up by people especially those skillful people at XDA.

835 lol G series can't be flagship then. It will be 845 for sure

But the LG V series is the flagship.

The G series should not be considered the flagship when the V series always have better premium specs.

Like many others have said....V series is the true LG flagship these days. No excuse for launching a current gen flagship with last gen's SoC.

My G6 is still running perfectly fine. Can't stand these spec wars sometimes

Perfectly fine is great for the G6. Perfectly fine is not so great when these 2018 flagships all expect at or near $1000

and in some cases it can be a positive as drivers have been matured at that point which should make it smooth sailing compared to having bleeding edge hardware. What good is having the newest tech if you are constantly finding bugs or other issues within a few months to a year after release?

It's difficult to turn down an upgrade with the latest "bleeding edge hardware" but you make some great points.

LG G7 will come with 845 100%. 1. The list that came out with all smartphones expected to arrive with the Snapdragon 845. The G7/G7+ was there. 2.And when LG said "The adoption of the Snapdragon 845 for LG’s next flagship phone seems inevitable" LG can not make the same mistakes over and over again. PEACE

The problem if g7 had 835 is price! It'll be priced same as an s9 with 845 instead of a phone with a year old chip
