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...

So the CEO scrapped the original phone, ordered engineers to go back to the drawing board, and they came up with a notch design? Seriously?

So glad I'm ditching LG for Samsung. I'll always have a special place in my heart for the V10 and V20. Never got the V30 but I'm upgrading to the S9+. Farewell LG.

The LG V30 will be my last flagship from LG, it's truly sad that they sunk this low. :( There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the design of the LG G6 and the LG V30, LG, please reconsider your choice, the G2 was the foundation of your identity, but the G7's design speaks of desperation from a corporation who's forgotten their beginning and is now suffering from an identity crisis. This is no bueno. Goodbye LG.

I didn't think it possible, but LG is forcing me back to Samsung. Or maybe the pixel.

Go pixel, you'll not go wrong.

Hahahahaha this will definitely be the last kick at the can for lg. Lazy design coupled with no clear strategy for the last 3 years equals disaster. Good riddance.

If the bottom bezels are smaller and the notch remains black throughout, it could work tbh.

A screen should always be rectangular, without any dents. Otherwise it just doesn't work. Kudus of course to Apple, to make it work in their Kingdom.

That second photo reminds me of WebOS.

My thoughts exactly. That is also the correct way to use a notch - have it visually not being part of the screen.
