The name of the next LG flagship is currently still up in the air but its launch date is a lot more certain now, with multiple sources claiming a March announcement, and an April launch.

LG may have had an underwhelming 2017 but the company looks set to sort out its issues this time out. The South Korean OEM released the LG G6 at the start of the year, before any other flagship. This ensured that the device had to be powered by the last-gen Snapdragon 821, a move that some would say ultimately led to the commercial failure of the smartphone. That mistake will not be repeated this year, though, as the successor to the G6 is billed for a March announcement, with an April launch to follow.

According to information from a high-ranking official at one of South Korea's biggest telecom companies, the next G-series device will be launched in April. Another source claimed the device would be unveiled mid-March, then launched a month later. Yet another source specified the launch as slated for April 20.

This comes after reports last week that LG is looking to rebrand the G-series. It's highly unlikely that the device in question even bears the G7 moniker. While its nomenclature remains in doubt, the device is certain to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 at least, and will likely feature an OLED display and some form of iris recognition.
