Whereas the latest phones announced by the Korean manufacturer have been little more than existing handsets with new color schemes or additional software features, Judy is a brand new design.
A new series of information from Evan Blass reveals that the LG "Judy" will have a 6.1-inch 18:9 Full Vision display. Despite the previous LG V30 offering an AMOLED panel, it looks like Judy will go in a different direction, instead opting for an LCD, which is being dubbed an MLCD+ panel with an RGBW matrix containing white sub-pixels.
Specs-wise, Judy reportedly ticks off numerous requisite boxes demanded by mobile enthusiasts. As for the remaining specifications, a Snapdragon 845 was always going to be on the cards, paired with a disappointing 4GB RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. A set (2X) of cameras at the rear of this phone were suggested to have 16-megapixel sensors and f/1.6 lenses. The phone will offer protection against the elements like dust and moisture, with an IP68 rating, and could even produce some fantastic sound with its dual speaker setup.
Other rumored features include staples like wireless charging and IP68 dust and water proofing, as well as LG's push into AI with a digital assistant, voice recognition, and camera AI. In other words, aside from the low RAM, Judy sounds like it'll be a premium flagship device.
VentureBeat notes that LG is targeting a June launch, with global availability sometime over the summer.
