It is a well-known fact that LG's smartphone business is not doing good for the past few years. It has tried different things like releasing the modular smartphone LG G5 but nothing seems to be working as planned so far. And now, it seems like LG has come up with a new idea and try to revive its lost glorious days.
This speculation is based on a new LG patent application about a curved smartphone featuring at least seven cameras. It is shown with three selfie cameras on the front panel but without any notch. Instead, it seems to be having individual cutouts for each of the sensors. On the back panel, one can see a total of four cameras packed inside a circular dial.
As for the design, this new LG smartphone seems to be featuring a curved design resembling what we saw with the LG G4. It is shown with relatively slimmer on top and bottom as compared to in the center. In the side-view, the curved angle is not as prominent as it has been in previous LG curved smartphones.
This is pretty much what is known about this new LG phone from the patent application. While the idea of offering seven cameras is an interesting one, it is certainly not surprising. We have seen OEMs packing phones with as many cameras as possible. Huawei started the trend with triple camera setup on the P20 Pro and is now rumored to be offering triple cameras again on the upcoming Mate 20 Pro. As for Samsung, it has just launched the world's first rear quad camera phone Galaxy A9 (2018).
