Thanks to a person briefed on the company's plans for a device codenamed "Judy" (in line with LG's traditional reliance on female monikers), the details are finally starting to come into focus. A new leak now says that LG will launch its next-generation flagship in June 2018 with Snapdragon 845 chipset under the hood. For starters, the LG G7 will come with a 6.1-inch Full Vision display with an aspect ratio of 18:9.
The unveiling of the next LG flagship smartphone is now expected to be sometime in April, with a company representative even hinting that the LG G6 successor will not be named the LG G7. Instead of the POLED display offered with the LG V30 and V30 Plus, the 2018 flagship device from LG will be coming with a new MLCD+ display technology. This new smartphone may replace the G series completely. Having a Snapdragon 845 processor on board would also help on the efficiency front, not to mention speed, as we've seen from the early benchmarks we ran on Qualcomm's new chip.
Talking about the cameras, the handset is said to sport dual rear cameras with glass optical elements. While there's no word of expandable storage, this phone is tipped to roll with at least 64GB internal storage. The report also states that there could be a "Plus" or "S" model as well with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM combo. LG's MLCD+ display happens to consume nearly 35 per cent less power than a standard IPS LCD screens. The new display is said to include a new white sub-pixel in addition to the RGBW color matrix. There will be two 16MP sensors which will have a f/1.6 aperture.

Water, dust, and impact resistance?
We have to wait and watch for more information. Like the LG G6 and LG V30, it will also have an IP68 rating, be MIL-STD-810G certified, and rock stereo speakers that will be referred to as "Boombox".
