Scrapped LG G7 (Neo) pictured in an Israeli Journal? (UPDATE: It's LG's next flagship!)
Serial tipster Even Blass received a tip himself today, about an Israeli Journal that appears to show the LG G7 (Neo) being presented at some type of event at MWC. This could be the scrapped version of the phone, as the model to be released this summer supposedly has a code name of Judy and a model number of LG710. Originally expected to be unveiled in March, LG reportedly dumped the project last month and started from scratch. The screen on the LG G7 (Neo) seems to have an optional notch setting, measures 6-inches and allegedly has a resolution of 1440 x 3120 for a PPI north of 900. The aspect ratio works out to 19.5:9.

UPDATE: According to a tweet sent today from Evan Blass, the Neo is indeed LG's next flagship model and all of the specs that we listed belong to this handset, except for the OLED panel instead of MLCD. Blass says that internally, LG employees are complaining that the device copies the Apple iPhone X. Blass notes that the author of the story, first seen in an Israeli Journal, is now receiving an "icy reaction" from LG reps, which would make sense if what he leaked was LG's next flagship model.

On back you will find a pair of 16MP cameras, one with an f/1.6 aperture, and the other with an f/1.9 aperture. The front-facing wide angle selfie snapper weighs in at 8MP. The Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is said to be under the hood, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. An enhanced version (LG G7+) features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery. The camera is embedded with AI technology, allowing it to identify items photographed.

A fingerprint scanner can be seen on back, and the LG G7 (Neo) carries an IP68 certification rating allowing it to be submerged in up to almost 5-feet of water, for as long as 30-minutes, and emerge unscathed.

According to Blass, at the same event where the LG G7 (Neo) was displayed, LG also revealed the LG Q7, LG V35 and a new smartwatch.
