LG and Huawei might not announce their flagship smartphones at MWC 2018: Report

It is a well-known fact that LG has decided not to launch their next flagship smartphone; the G7 at the MWC 2018 event next month. New to join the list is Huawei which according to industry reports is planning on skipping the flagship announcement at the MWC event.  If rumors are to be believed, Huawei is looking at hosting a special event in April in Europe to showcase the P20 flagships, while limiting the MWC announcements to tablet PCs and 2-in-1 laptops. The company in 2017 had introduced the P10 flagships at the MWC. Huawei is delaying the launch in order to overlook issues such as preparing the phone for American markets, stabilization of supply and demand for next chipsets, improvement in standards of triple cameras. We already learned that LG would skip the G7 announcement. Instead, it is expected to introduce the V30+ α with enhanced A.I features. A high-ranking official of a mobile network said,”Models that will be introduced by LG Electronics at MWC 2018 will inherit current design of V30 and have partial changes to some of its parts and name changes.” Samsung has no change of plans, and it will launch the S9 and S9+ as per the schedule.

Top Apple insider reveals specs and pricing for Apple’s third new iPhone of 2018

iPhone X

We’re barely a few weeks into 2018, but rumors surrounding Apple’s next-gen iPhone lineup are already starting to trickle in at a rapid clip. From what we’ve seen so far, Apple later this year will release three brand new iPhone models, one being a 6.5-inch device with an edgeless OLED display, a next-gen version of the current 5.8-inch iPhone X, and the last one being a 6.1-inch device with an edgeless LCD display. Naturally, the larger device will reportedly be dubbed a “Plus” model while the smaller LCD-based device will be positioned as a more wallet-friendly option.

Shedding some more light on Apple’s upcoming iPhone lineup, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo earlier today issued a new research note (via MacRumors) wherein he provides even more information about how Apple plans to differentiate the varying models in its 2018 iPhone lineup.

Notably, Apple’s 6.1-inch iPhone X variant will reportedly feature an aluminum frame and a single camera in the rear. In contrast, the OLED-based iPhone X models will feature a stainless steel frame and dual cameras on the back. Further, Kuo relays that Apple’s 6.1-inch iPhone model will not incorporate 3D Touch, a feature Apple first introduced on 2015’s iPhone 6s. Kuo also adds that Apple’s LCD based iPhone will ship with 3GB of RAM while the OLED models will now house 4GB of RAM. Incidentally, the iPhone X Apple rolled out last year features 3GB of RAM.

Price wise, Kuo anticipates that Apple will sell the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone model somewhere between $ 700 and $ 800. Additionally, Kuo writes that Apple plans to push up its certification schedule as to avoid any delays.

We predict the 6.1″ LCD iPhone will differ from the 6.5″ and 5.8″ OLED models in terms of certain specs, for reasons of cost/price and product segmentation. However, this shouldn’t have any effect on key user experience. We revise up our price projection for the 6.1″ model from $ 650-$ 750 to $ 700-$ 800, and remain positive on shipments momentum.

According to Kuo, this is what Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup will look like.

An investor’s note is shedding some more light on previous prognostications, saying again that moving at least some iPhone X features to the entire line will boost sales volume — and has some predictions on specifications of the 6.1-inch LCD model.
