LG Support Page Suggests its New Flagship Will be Called the LG G7
In early January, an LG official told members of the press that the company would ditch its G series smartphone brand for something new. LG’s said to be tossing around new names, and reportedly plans to launch the rebranding effort sometime during the first half of 2018. Some folks took the reports to mean that LG’s next flagship — the successor to the LG G6 — wouldn’t be called the LG G7, but a support page on LG’s UK website points to the contrary.
The support page was quickly taken down (you can see a screenshot below), but it talked about which version of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology the company’s smartphones support. A chart showed the LG G5 and the LG G6, which have Quick Charge 3.0, and the “Future LG G7”, which it listed as supporting Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 technology.
It’s not LG’s only recent slipup. The company prematurely published the LG Wallet application in the Play Store earlier this week, and it also mentioned the LG G7.
There’s a chance it could be a placeholder name, of course, but there’s no way to tell until the company makes an official announcement.
