LG G7 render surfaces revealing dual front-facing cameras

This image allegedly shows a render of the LG G7


UPDATE: After closer inspection, we've concluded that the image is just a fan-made concept, not an actual LG G7 render. Original story follows below.

A render of what allegedly is the LG G7 has appeared and if legit, it tells us a little about the front of the phone. The bezels are trimmer than ever, and it appears that LG's 2018 flagship will once again feature an aspect ratio of 18:9. A glance at the image also reveals the dual camera setup on the front of the handset. LG is reportedly planning on releasing the device in April, later than it had in the past so that it won't get shut out on using Qualcomm's new top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 chipset.

Last year's LG G6 had to make do with the prior year's Snapdragon 821 SoC thanks to a deal between Qualcomm and Samsung that gave the latter first dibs on the Snapdragon 835. While there have been rumors that the LG G7 will have to be powered by 2017's Snapdragon 835 chipset, more recent speculation has the new Snapdragon 845 under the phone's hood.

LG recently made a splash at CES when it announced that it would no longer release new handsets unless "it is needed," whatever that means. In addition, it won't release new models during a certain time period just to match the release dates of its competitors (mainly Samsung). The company also plans on getting rid of the "G" name for its new smartphones.

We expect the LG G7 to be unveiled in the middle of March, and as we pointed out earlier, released in April instead of March like last year, and the year before that.

Bezels should be at least symmetrical. I'd rather the larger one at the bottom than at the top.

The render does reveal a bottom bezel, and it is slightly larger than the top one. Try increasing the screen brightness to the max.

It's Huawei not hawaii as you call it. Learn the name of what you're bitching about before you start running your mouth you knob.

We live in a world where spellings are more important than the actual talk.

I mean no disrespect or any off topic but a small "u" if replaced in the word "Cant" can make a huge difference!

I see a lot of complaints about LG UX? What is so awful that can't be fixed with a different launcher?

LG is the only brand that can compete with Samsung in design/can beat (forget 2016 , V30 has a better design than Note8) HTC Huawei etc cant compete. No way.

If you remove dual edge from S8 and keep curved glass it will look exactly like v30.

S8 have smaller bezels.. 84% screen-to-body ratio vs 81% on V30

No OEM should release phones until really needed. Meaning until they have a completely new OS with new features no one has ever seen before. Instead of the crap they all have now.

Or you could just not buy them & let the people who want to spend their money how they want to. That's also an option.

Let's hope the screen is more like the V30 thank the horrible G6

Looks good but I would never buy an LG knowing they could pull the plug on mobile at any point in the near future.

And should pull the plug I might add... Unless they just want their mobile division to be a hobby

Will your phone stop working instantly if they pull the plug? I'm sure I've got an old Palm Pre lying around that still works.
