The smartphone camera wars are heating up. While everyone’s fawning over the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy Note8, LG just dropped a bombshell regarding their camera that makes things super interesting. The South Korean company just announced that their upcoming smartphone will have the fastest aperture lens on any smartphone yet.
Before LG introduces its new V30 flagship smartphone, the previous LG V20 is finally available in Malaysia with official warranty. Despite being last year’s flagship, the LG V20 is still quite a compelling device under RM2,000 as it gets a dual-camera system with a wide-angle option along with a secondary display on top.
LG’s V10 was a fairly interesting device as it was a G4 on steroids, with one or two added features like the secondary ticker display and two selfie cameras. It was definitely a head turner of a device, but unfortunately, it never got an official launch in Malaysia.
Now, though, LG has officially revealed that there will be a sequel to the V10 and it will be one of the first devices running Android Nougat.
New leaks suggest that LG might borrow some cues from the V series and plaster them on their next flagship smartphone, the LG G5. It’ll be the Korean maker’s first ever all-metal smartphone too, according to a source involved in the organisation.
Hot on the tail of launching the premium LG G4 smartphone and announcing the LG G4 Stylus and G4c, the brand has confirmed that it will be launching a new flagship device by the second half of this year.
According to sources, LG confirmed that a new flagship that “stands above the G series” is in the works, with predictions pointing towards the new device potentially being the successor to the LG G Pro 2 to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of devices. This is part of the brand’s “dual flagship strategy” which it kicked off last year with the launch of the G Pro 2.
However, the specs have yet to be finalized but LG says that the new phone will be pretty high-end. But the big question is how exactly is LG going to one up the LG G4?
