There has been a number of rumors regarding the name for the successor of the LG G6. Some rumors claimed LG would rename the G-series to something else, but a mention of the yet to be announced flagship on the English LG website contradicts this.
In recent weeks, there have been rumors about the name of the successor of the LG G6. These rumors claimed that LG would put the G-series in the mothballs and come up with a new name for the flagship. The company would, therefore, like to refresh this series and perhaps want to give more exposure.
The G-series has been around for a while. It all started in 2012 with the LG Optimus G, later followed by the LG G2. A name change to give a new impetus to this series is not that strange at all. Samsung has previously done the same thing by skipping the Galaxy Note 6, while Apple made a leap from the iPhone 8 to the iPhone X while unveiling both the phones together.
The appearance of the LG Wallet app disproved these rumors because here the name LG G7 was mentioned. This app was then removed from the Play Store again and with that, the doubts struck again.
There is another new episode in the soap about the naming of the next flagship of LG. Today the name of the LG G7 has been spotted on the official LG site in England. The LG G7 is listed there as a future device within the range of LG.
The name of the LG G7 can be seen on the page about fast where it has been listed as a future device to support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 technology. This seems to be sufficient evidence to state with a probability that the name for the next flagship will be LG G7.
There is still very little info leaked about the next flagship of LG. In December, a concept video appeared on YouTube and we saw the LG G7 appear in the list of devices that will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
We also do not know when the device will be presented to us. The LG G6 was shown during the MWC 2016 in Barcelona and we assume that this will also happen with the LG G7.
