LG has no plans to unveil a flagship phone at the MWC 2018 as Korean media reports indicated release date of the rumored LG G7 will be delayed.
Instead of March, the G7 will debut April this year as reports came out that LG intends to rework the handset and start from scratch. Earlier reports have suggested LG wants to share the limelight with Samsung’s Galaxy S9 at the Barcelona trade show. It appears now the South Korean device maker is in no rush to release its next flagship bet.
The marching order from the top is to start over, providing strong hints that LG’s 2018 lineup of flagship models will be pushed back. This means potentially delayed arrival not only for the LG G7 but also for the follow up to the LG V30.
“The G7 smartphone team of the company’s mobile communications business was told to halt recent work related to development of the newest phone, and to review the new product from scratch,” a report from The Korea Herald said.
