Going by recent reports, LG has now killed off its flagship G-series, with the LG G9 ThinQ all but officially dead in the water. According to word on the grapevine, the replacement to the G9 ThinQ has now been penned down for a May 15 launch, and is touted to feature a Snapdragon 765G, four cameras in total, and a 4000 mAh battery.

A few weeks ago, reports surfaced claiming that LG would launch a Snapdragon 765-powered LG G9 ThinQ. Those reports have since been touted to be false, as new information claims the company will kill the G-series off entirely in favor of an all-new sub-premium phone. Apparently, the launch of that phone may be even closer than expected.

Going by a new report, LG is set to unveil its new sub-premium offering on May 15. That's just about a month away at this point, and will likely see the phone released in the same window as the Google Pixel 4a. 

The phone, tentatively named "5G Chocolate Smartphone"—don't ask questions, we're just as confused—is billed to be powered by the 5G-capable Snapdragon 765G in a move by LG to bring 5G connectivity to its non-flagship phones. The phone is said to sport an impressive design, and has been positively received by industry insiders.

The device is billed to have a display in the region of 6.7-6.9" and will feature a total of four cameras, with the main rear snapper being a 48 MP sensor. A 4000 mAh battery is expected.
