Is this LG’s next flagship?

Comments

  • will

    And they still wonder why they don’t sell.. yesteryear’s soc and current flagship pricing…not a good combination.

      It’ll be heavily discontinued at the carriers within a couple of months. Might be worth it then.

    • will

      If you like to buy on contract….

      Yes. That is the way 90% of the population gets their phones…

      Activate a Koodo tab, take the activation credits, cancel the next day.

      Because Samsung is hoarding the first batches of the chipset like last year with the sd835. If they wanted the latest chipset they would had/have to delay the launch by a 2-3 months.

      They should have released this last fall then…at least it wouldn’t be a year old as will be the case when the G7 comes out.

      They released the v30 last fall

    • Can’t Fix Stupid

      They should have released the v30 last spring.

      Yeah, supply constraints and timing hurt LG and others as Samsung normally has the first 3 or so months worth of chip and other production components tied up and then the rest of the industry fights eachother for parts as they do become available.

      It’s just not realistically possible for LG and others to get Qualcomms SD chips in the numbers they need soon after launch. Perhaps LG should consider another supplier or design their own chip so they can have better control over supply and launch dates.

      That said, the 835 is an excellent CPU and the 845 is still a long ways off unless the company’s is named Samsung so I’m sure that it will be a competitive device still. Besides that, I doubt that most consumers have a clue about this stuff anyways.

      I don’t see any sluggishness with my G6 on 821. I wouldn’t hesitate buying the next one just based on the chip spec.

    Love the slim symmetrical bezels top and bottom…and no ugly notch required.

    Looks revolutionary
