Leak reveals LG Gram to get TB3, fingerprint scanner
German site WinFuture has leaked the specs and photos of LG's updated Gram lineup. The Gram lineup was introduced in late 2015, designed to be as light as possible. The updates add Thunderbolt 3, a fingerprint scanner embedded into the touchpad, and higher-capacity (up to 60 Wh) batteries. They've also shaved about another .1 lbs off the weight.
There are three models detailed in WinFuture's leak:
- 13Z970 with a 13.3-inch display
- 14Z970 with a 14-inch display
- 15Z970 with—you guessed it—a 15-inch display
All the laptops will run on Intel's U-series Kaby Lake i5 and i7 chips, with SSDs available up to 512 GB. No information on RAM is available, but it would be a shock if they didn't at least go up to 16 GB. The new Grams will still sport the same FHD (1920 x 1080, non-touch) matte IPS displays as the previous generation.
The previous Grams weighed in around an impressively light 2.2 pounds and featured a magnesium casing with slim bezels, but were somewhat let down by below-average battery life and the lack of backlit keyboards. It isn't clear if the new models still lack a keyboard backlight.
