LG has teased the design for its forthcoming new smartphone 8211; and it is heading down a 8220;minimalist8221; route.
The handset was originally expected to be the LG G9 ThinQ, but a recent report claimed that it will be called something totally different, with the company ditching the 8220;G-series8221; branding.
That same report did mention a sleeker, refreshed design for the phone, however, with an anonymous source even comparing it to a classic LG Chocolate phone: 8220;It is very different from the 5G product design of other manufacturers that have been released so far,8221; he said.
8220;Our upcoming smartphone will draw on the rich history of classic LG designs which have always been distinctive at first touch,8221; said the vice president of LG mobile design, Cha Yong-duk.
It features a 8220;raindrop8221; camera on the rear, with three circular lens and an LED flash underneath looking like raindrops cascading down the upper-left-hand side.
There is no indication yet as to when the new phone(s) could be announced. We8217;ll keep you informed in the coming days and weeks.
