LG G7 may be the first Android smartphone to run on Snapdragon 845 SoC

Last year Samsung announced an exclusive partnership with Qualcomm under which the company’s this year’s flagship smartphones — Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus — are the first to sport chip manufacturer’s most powerful processor Snapdragon 835. As a result, despite LG G6 being a top-end smartphone, it sports Qualcomm’s last year flagship processor Snapdragon 821. So, despite some impressive features, the smartphone appears ‘pale’ on processor front.
Now, it seems that LG wants to ensure that its next flagship smartphone, LG G7, runs on the very latest processor from the company.
According to a report in Korea Herald, the South Korean tech giant LG has already started working with Qualcomm for its next year’s flagship smartphone G7. This means that LG G7 will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The report, however, does not confirm if this is an exclusive deal.
The report also claioms that the next-generation processor is almost 30% more powerful as compared to the current generation and will be built on 7nm process. The report also says that 7nm process can be placed in a smaller frame and will also improve the performance of the device.
Earlier this month, LG slashed the price of its flagship smartphone G6 in India. Launched at Rs 51,990, the smartphone is now available at Rs 41,990 after the price cut of Rs 10,000.
LG G6 is available in Ice Platinum, Atro Black and Mystic White colour options. Along with this, the company is offering 50% discount on its Tone Active+ HBS-A100 Bluetooth headset, which was launched alongside the smartphone.
The metal-clad LG G6 runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, with UX 6.0 layer running on top. It sports a ‘unique’ 5.7-inch ‘FullVision’ display that has a resolution of 1440×2880 pixels. The smartphone’s screen-to-body ratio has also been increased and there are minimal bezels on top and bottom.
LG G6 includes built-in functionality to scale regular 16:9 content to its 18:9 display. It is also the world’s first smartphone to come with Dolby Vision viewing technology.
For imaging duties, LG G6 comes with a dual-camera setup at the back. Comprising two 13MP sensor modules, the rear camera arrangement is complemented by laser autofocus, triple-axis OIS and LED flash. Users can also shoot 4K resolution videos from the handset. For selfie-lovers, a 5MP front shooter is available with a 100-degree wide angle lens and f/2.2 aperture.
