LG’s next flagship arrives in June with Snapdragon 845, 6.1″ screen, stereo speakers

Since the G6 was unwrapped at MWC last year, you might expect LG to unveil the G7 at the end of this month in Barcelona, but you’d be wrong. The Korean company has recently decided to overhaul its launch strategy, so all we’re getting at MWC 2018 is apparently an AI-infused iteration of the V30. LG’s true next flagship smartphone is set to arrive in June, according to a new report from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, a.k.a. @evleaks. This device will not be called G7, which means we may bid farewell to the G series. Right now it’s known only by its codename: Judy. LG V30, Judy’s…
