LG had a rather subdued presence at the Mobile World Congress with its upgraded V30+ ThinQ. The company is now preparing to launch its next flagship smartphone which will be the successor to its G6. While it is not clear whether or not the company will rename the device, it is expected to be called the G7 (Neo). If the latest renders are anything to go by, it will be a redesigned model too, albeit heavily borrowed from the Apple iPhone X.

The concept renders of the LG G7 (Neo) as reported on TechnoBuffalo show off a wider version of what looks like an iPhone X, complete with the notch. Based on these renders, the LG G7 (Neo) could sport an edge-to-edge display with 18:9 aspect ratio. With a visible bottom bezel, the smartphone is imagined to sport a notch design on the top. The notch is placed in the center, possibly housing the front camera and other sensors.

LG had reportedly revealed the next-gen G series smartphone at the event. Based on that, designer Ben Geskin has provided these renders which highlight the dual-camera setup at the back of the LG G7 (Neo) as well. The camera module is placed in the center, followed by the fingerprint sensor.

If we consider past rumors, the upcoming LG G7 is expected to pack a 6-inch OLED display with a pixel density of 900ppi. It is said to deliver a screen resolution of 3,120 x 1,440 pixels with a display aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The latest renders are in line with the unusual aspect ratio on a wider screen.

The LG G7 (Neo) is further rumored to be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage for the base model. There could be a high-end version with 6GB of RAM and 128Gb of default internal storage.

The G7 (Neo) is rumored to have a dual-camera setup which includes a 16-megapixel dual camera at the back with Optical Image Stabilization and a variable aperture, similar to what we have seen on the Galaxy S9 duo. Up front, there will be an 8-megapixel sensor. Other rumored features include DTX-X powered speakers, 3,000mAh battery, and Android Oreo running out-of-the-box.
