Today, we have new details and specs on an upcoming LG flagship device codenamed "Judy".

Besides, the company's Vice Chairman and CEO Jo Seong-jin, earlier said that they will not launch new flagship smartphones "just like other rivals do".

As reported by VentureBeat, LG will pack a 6.1-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio screen in Judy.

The successor to the G6 is now being called Judy and is said to be sporting a brand new design focusing on display.

This added efficiency would be key, as we've found that both the LG V30 and LG G6 fell down on battery life versus the competition.

Previous rumours claimed that LG might redesign the G7 flagship smartphone from scratch.

A person familiar with the plans for LG's Judy told Blass that the smartphone will be a brand new design. For those unaware, last year's LG G6 was powered by Snapdragon 821 instead of Snapdragon 835 because Samsung had the entire stock. There will be 4GB of RAM inside the phone and 64GB of native storage capacity. LG does optics on its smartphone family very well and you can expect dual-cameras at the back with a very wide F/1.6 aperture. However, it will still consume 35 percent less energy than the standard IPS LCD panels. Yes, 4 GB of RAM might seem low for many, especially when phones have started coming with 8 GB of RAM, hence, there's a possibility of LG launching a Plus variant with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage later on. The panel will feature a RGBW subpixel matrix, where "W" stands for White.

There'll be "boombox" stereo speakers, wireless charging, and the voice controlled digital assistant and camera AI we'll see unveiled at MWC in a little over a week. Now, we have also heard that the company is planning to scrap the LG G series of smartphones so we will most likely not be getting the a smartphone named as LG G7.

Stay tuned to Tom's Guide for all the latest rumors on LG's would-be Galaxy S9 killer.
