Report: LG's next flagship might come earlier than expected


For the last few years, LG has been on a bit of a crusade, the objective of which is to make its flagship line achieve maximum popularity. The manufacturer has resorted to all sorts of unconventional approaches, from making the 2016 LG G5 modular, to releasing this year's G6 in March with the hopes of selling as many units as possible before the Galaxy S8 and other Android flagships managed to hit the shelves. 

A hot new report from South Korea now suggests that for next year, LG might be planning to take things even further. Apparently, the company is considering whether to move the launch of its top 2018 handset, tentatively called the G7, a couple of months earlier. Provided that the information is accurate, this would mean that we might see an announcement for the G7 as early as next January. 

The report also mentions that the same tactic will be employed for the high-end V30. Apparently, the phablet is set to break cover this August, which is one month earlier than the 2016 debut of its predecessor, the V20.

When reached out for a comment, a company spokesperson neither confirmed or denied these claims, stating that “Nothing has been decided on the launch schedule of the upcoming phones”

It's needless to say that this information should be taken with a big pinch of salt. However, given LG's history and current standing, these speculations kinda make sense. The manufacturer has shown that it can come up with some quality handsets, and we doubt that the firm considers its rather small share of the mobile market as satisfactory.
