T-Mobile may launch LG's first Android One smartphone in the U.S.
Android One is already present in the United States thanks to the launch of the Nokia 6.1, but it looks like LG plans to introduce its own Android One smartphone as well. The information doesn't come as a surprise since a rumor that dates from January 2017 claimed Google plans to launch a mid-range Android One smartphone and that LG might be among the first manufacturers to build it.

Today, new details about an LG smartphone powered by Android One emerged online, although it's in no way related to the rumor mentioned earlier. Apparently, the South Korean company has teamed up with T-Mobile to launch its first Android One smartphone in the United States.

The rumored device won't be an entirely new smartphone, but an Android One variant of the LG Q7, which was officially unveiled about a month ago. Unfortunately, the Q7 is a pretty expensive phone, at least in South Korea where it sells for around $455 outright.

However, the Android One variant might pack slightly lower specs, like a Snapdragon 450 processor, either 2 or 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch display with FHD+ resolution and a 3,000 mAh battery. We also know the smartphone will include NFC (Near Field Communication), a USB Type-C port and Android 8.1 Oreo.

That's a good start for LG to dump their horrible UI.
