LG is slated to launch its next-gen Gram laptop series in South Korea on December 16, 2020. A leak allegedly originating from the same country purports to spill details on the 16-inch SKU from this series. It points to an 11th-gen core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 65W charging and a price that might come as a surprise considering these specs.

LG is said to substitute a 16-inch version of its ultra-thin-and-light Gram laptop for its normal 15-inch SKU for 2021. It, along with others that might retain 14- and 17-inch screens, will make their debut in the OEM's native market on December 16, 2020 - tomorrow - prior to its release to the rest of the world.

The Twitter-based leaker Tron (or @cozyplanes) now claims that this LG Gram 16 (or 16Z90P) will be powered by the Core i5-1135G7 CPU with no mention of discrete graphics. This new post also mentions one 8GB RAM/256GB SSD spec, and is accompanied by a series of live images.

They may indicate that the "Gram 16" will have a shiny white lid, with a bottom panel and keyboard finished in the same color. Its alleged ports on both sides are also shown, and may thus comprise 1 HMDI port; 2 SuperSpeed USB type A ports; 2 USB type Cs with Thunderbolt and a 3.5mm jack. There is also a microSD (almost definitely not full SD) card slot.

Tron asserts that the price for all this will be set at no less than 2,169,000 won (KRW) - or ~US$1980. The tipster claims to have sourced this information from a South Korean forum website called Meeco. Then again, this new tweet on the subject does specify that this applies to a 2021 Gram SKU for its first market, and might thus not translate in full to others.
