LG is said to be announcing its next flagship smartphone in May. 

According to South Korean publication ETNews, LG is going to unveil the G7 and G7 Plus in May. Following in the footsteps of Apple and Samsung, LG is also going to increase the retail prices of its flagship phones. The G7 is rumored to cost US$94 (~S$123) more than its predecessor (S$988).

ETNews added that the G7 will come with an iPhone X-like notch on the OLED display, a vertically mounted dual-camera system on the back, Quad-DAC audio system, a 3,000mAh battery, Snapdragon 845 and at least 4GB RAM. The publication did not have any information on the specs of the Plus variant. 

As for the G and V series of phones, ETNews reported that LG will keep the two lineups at least until next year. Due to the later launch of the G7, LG could also push back the release of the V40 phone to November.
