From the look of the things, it seems like the South Korean giant LG is in hurry of announcing upcoming flagship. Today the company's official site listed a feature of an upcoming feature. They not only confirmed the feature but also provide the details regarding the naming of next flagship from LG.
As per LG UK site, the upcoming LG's flagship will be announced as G7. The device supports Qualcomm' Quick Charge 4.0 tech for fast charging, it will be the company's first smartphone with this tech on board. The support also raises question over which chipset the device will have under the hood Snapdragon 835 or the Snapdragon 845.
Surprisingly LG didn't mention the Quick Charge 4.0+ for the G7. Alongside with the latest Snapdragon 845 SoC, Qualcomm announced 4+ charging tech. However, the Snapdragon 845 also supports the older Quick Charge 4.0 as well. The recently announced Nubia Z17 was the first smartphone in the market with the Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0+ but it has Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood.
It is still in the dark which Qualcomm chipset will be powering the upcoming G7. The current gen Snapdragon 845 and predecessor Snapdragon 835 SoC is built on 10nm process. The Snapdragon 845 is the second gen whereas the Snapdragon 835 was the first gen. Samsung is rumored to acquire all the stocks of Snapdragon 845 for the upcoming S9 series like they did last year with the Snapdragon 835. This will result in tight space for the company to get the chunk for G7. The upcoming G7 will have Snapdragon 845 or 835 it is still in dark.
