LG came to MWC 2018 without any new flagship phones. Well, technically, they did have a new phone in the form of the LG V30s ThinQ (what an absurd name!). But it was just a spin-off of the LG V30 with just some software extras like AI. To be honest, it was just a placeholder for LG at the expo. But behind the scenes, LG did have a bag of surprises that it showed off to an elite group of people.
Most notably, it had a unit of what is reported to be an LG G7 (Neo). This is now claimed to be the LG G7 codenamed Judy. In other words, the LG G7 itself. The handset was pictured by an Israeli publication and then it went viral on bloggerverse.
On the other hand, noted tipster Evan Blass now claims that Judy is, in fact, the LG G7 (Neo) itself. Earlier he claimed that the Neo variant and the LG Judy phone were different. That aside, now it seems that LG has also succumbed to the same fate as many Chinese phone makers. The LG G7 (Neo) showcased at MWC comes with a notch on the top.
The device features a 6-inch display with an unusual 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 3120p resolution. Other component details include a Snapdragon 845 chip and 4GB/6GB of RAM coupled with 64GB/128GB of storage respectively. LG G7 (Neo) will still have stellar imaging cameras with 16MP dual rear sensors and f/1.6 aperture. Further, it is believed to sport a 3000mAh battery and boombox speakers.

To sum it up, the LG G7 (Neo) is the next LG flagship coming in the first half of 2018. Apart from the LG G7 (Neo), there was an LG V35, a Q7, and a smartwatch in LG’s booth details of which are nowhere to be found.
