LG’s latest flagship phones are the G7 ThinQ and the V35 ThinQ. According to our sources, LG is planning to launch another flagship phone, also containing the snapdragon 845 mobile platform, called the LG V40 ThinQ, which is expected to have an OLED display feature. Having that said, rumor has it that the LG G8 will house an LCD panel and full support for 4k technology.
Still trying to understand what’s the big news? Well, the majority of the latest mobile phones in the market feature resolutions such as FHD+ and the QHD+. LG on the other hand is one of the first companies that will launch a QHD supported mobile phone. The reasons for the technical upgrade for the LG’s new flagship phone are yet to be discovered. Nevertheless, the new features will definitely improve the viewing experience.
It is important to understand that LG is not the first to be releasing a 4K supported smartphone. It seems that Sony has already launched a smartphone supporting such technology, the new Xperia XZ2 premium. The difference between the two flagship phones is Sony’s focus on VR. Sources say that LG is planning to launch VP supported phones sometime in the beginning of 2019.
We tried to understand the reasons behind the adoption of the 4K resolution by LG. It seems like LG is planning to align with one of its biggest competitors, Samsung, and its flagship models; The Galaxy S10 & S10+ which will be arriving next year.
