LG has been in the news for not one, but two of their upcoming flagship devices. At the moment, the world is busy with the upcoming LG V30 smartphone, something that has smartphone enthusiasts extremely excited, thanks to its gorgeous looks and promising camera specs. But what about what’s coming next? Well, it may be early, but we have probably managed to come to a conclusion about the lack or the presence of one of the crucial features of LG G7.
One of the biggest talking points about the LG V30 has been about the possible absence of the 3.5 mm headphone jack. After Apple so flamboyantly removed the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 last year, smartphone buyers have been on the edge because of the possibility of other manufacturers following suit. In fact, many had believed that LG, a company prone to experiments of all kinds, would be among the first to attempt to incorporate the bizarre new trend. And if the V30 should come with it, then why not the LG G7 that comes after?
We are only a few days away from the unveiling of the LG V30, so we will know the truth then. However, the device has already been leaked numerous times over the past month and it is perhaps safe to surmise that the 3.5 mm headphone jack is being retained. But if that is the case, then what are the chances of the LG G7 features next year giving the headphone jack a miss?
Somehow, though, we feel confident that we would not see the headphone jack becoming a thing of the past for Android smartphones. Moreover, since LG’s commendable experiment with modular smartphones backfired, the company has radically shifted their approach. Thanks to that, the LG V30 might just be one of the most stylish and able smartphones we will come across this year. And like the V30, and the G6 before that, the LG G7 will also focus on overall betterment in design and performance, rather than alienating potential buyers by incorporating a far more complicated version of an essential smartphone feature. The LG G7 release date is next year, and although a lot may change between now and then, we believe LG will not tamper with the feature in question.
Meanwhile, the upcoming device is said to bolster its presence in the technical arena by introducing an IRIS scanner and AR support. More will unfold after the V30 is formally introduced to the markets, and although we have our LG G7 wishlist ready, we cannot wait to find out what’s in-store for the company’s promising future.
