LG V30 my release earlier and LG G7 Coming in January 2018
LG Electronics is considering moving up the launch schedule of its next flagship smartphone. Fresh information coming through South Korean media suggests that LG may debut the V30 early this year. It is now speculated to launch as early as in August.
The Investor also claims that the LG V30 is arriving in August this year. Moreover, it even states that the LG G7 would be launching in January 2018.
The press days for IFA, when the major press conferences that will be held on the last two days of August (IFA officially starts on, September 1), the South Korean company may unleash it. But, LG has never used the IFA platform to announce the LG V series smartphones probably because these phones have not been launched in European markets.
However, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 8 at the August end and the New iPhone will come in September. So, these high popular smartphones can completely disrupt the sales of LG G7 if it is launched in August. LG Electronics also launching LG G7 in January. It seems that the company may unleash it through the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that will be held in the same month. But CES platform is normally used to showcase next-generation home appliances like TVs and refrigerators than mobile.
It will make more sense if the LG G7 flagship smartphone is unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona that is usually used for showcasing mobile devices.
LG takes more time to develop a phone. An LG rep also quotes that “Nothing has been decided on the launch schedule of the upcoming phones”.
