We already knew that LG had abandoned the trend of launching a high-end smartphone every year, changing strategy after more than six years presenting smartphone of the “G” series lineup at the beginning of each year. What until now remained a secret, were the company’s new plans with respect to its high-end segment, but the popular leakster Evan Blass has decided to clarify the doubts of those present confirming the first details of the upcoming LG flagship smartphone LG Judy of the South Korean firm that would be presented in June of this year according to the Evan Blass post. Apparently, it would be a device from a different LG family from present LG G and V series with a design that will have little to do with the rest of the smartphones presented by the company to date.
According to Evan Blass, the new LG Judy will feature a 6.1-inch FullVision MLCD+ display with a 18:9 aspect ratio and will be powered by the new octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with Adreno 630 GPU. It will have 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM along with 64GB internal storage and will have expandable storage up to 2TB with the help of microSD card slot. It will run on the Android 8.1 (Oreo) with LG UX on top. It will feature 16-megapixel dual rear cameras with f/1.6-aperture and will also have a front camera with wide-angle lens.
It will have an unknown size battery with support of fast charging and wireless charging features. It will have connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0 LE, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C and will have a fingerprint sensor as well. It will be water and dust resistant with IP68 ratings and will also be MIL-STD 810G certified. The device will also have 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC and stereo speakers for audio enhancement. So, we are not seeing any LG flagship in the upcoming MWC 2018 event in Barcelona may be because of the Samsung launching its Galaxy S series flagships Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the February 25th event, but we are going to see the new LG Judy in June for sure if the leak from Evan Blass becomes true.
