It's an announcement for an announcement as LG has announced an event early next week for a mysterious phablet with the headline "Something New".

The manufacturer is teasing a single image of the device on its official Facebook page. The white phablet appears to have a smooth and sleek matte finish complete with a camera Flash and a unique ridge that stretches across from one edge to the other. The signature rear Volume and Power buttons will continue to be on the back similar to most LG smartphones.

The overall design looks to be a fresh take on the existing LG design used for the G4 and Flex series. Corners and edges are no longer as round and appear more defined as if the manufacturer had settled between the sharp features of an Xperia phone and the contour features of a classic LG phone.

Other than appearance, official specifications and prices are still unknown. A rumor earlier this week hinted at the H740 with a Snapdragon 615 SoC, 2 GB RAM, 5.7-inch FHD display, 8 GB eMMC, 13 MP rear camera, and Android 5.1.1. This may very well be the mysterious tablet, but we'll have to wait a few days to find out.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
