However, several reports had recently suggested a potential delay in the launch of the handset, as the company was re-evaluating its mobile business strategy.
LG Electronics is on a mission to defray years of losses
Meanwhile, denying the rum-ours, LG told En-gadget, “Some stories have reported that LG’s mobile division is delaying the release of the G7 in order to re-evaluate its performance and design.
The spokesperson also added that LG plans to focus on creating meaningful products instead of launching new products based on tradition or industry expectations. LG says it will launch its new flagship “when the time is right”. The statement in line with Seasoning’s statement at the CES, where he said: “we will not launch it (LG G7) just because other rivals do”.
The statement hasn’t specified whether the G7 will be unveiled at MWC 2018 or not. But, since the event is less than a month away, it is expected that there will be a separate event for the launch.
Seasoning had also mentioned earlier that LG Electronics might experiment with different model names. An earlier report had suggested a possible re-branding of smartphones at LG.
With growing speculations
Based on previous rum ours, the 2018 flagship from LG could sport an 18:9 aspect ratio display, with slimmer bezels than before. A dual camera setup is also speculated to be present on the handset.
