LG 'G7' moniker confirmed by company's own app, render image appears online

The "all-screen" design trend is going to continue in 2018.

There is a word in the market that LG's home country rival, Samsung, will bring the same screen-is-to-body ratio in the "Galaxy S9" as it was in the Galaxy S8 as the latter may have the same design.

But then again, towards the end of 2017, there have been a number of reports claiming that LG is going to rebrand the Gx line of smartphones starting in 2018 this year thus raising the possibility of a brand new phone name. LG, meanwhile, apparently didn't run into whatever problem Samsung was having with its original Galaxy S9 design. Spotted by Android Police, the name was mentioned by LG in the listing page of a new app called LG Wallet.

As leaked by TigerMobiles.com (via Droid-Life), this supposed render of the upcoming LG (G7?) smartphone will feature stupid tiny bezels on the top and bottom and near non-existent borders on the sides.

The folks over at TigerMobiles have obtained a rendering of what they say is the upcoming LG G7. Although details are scant on what exactly the smartphone might offer, the image appears to show a device with a screen-to-body ratio that could top what you'd find in this year's Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, we're able to make out extraordinarily slim bezels on all sides of the display, as well as dual front cameras, which have previously been rumored. But it's also possible that LG aped Apple's brilliant iPhone X design, which curves the bottom of the screen behind itself at the bottom of the device so that the display controller can be hidden inside behind the display rather than underneath it. LG, it seems, has found a way to remove the bottom bezel.
