LG’s V series are the second flagship smartphones by LG after LG’s G series. So today we are talking about LG V series next flagship smartphone, which will be LG V40. We are less than a month from the middle of 2018, wherever LG is tipped to unveil the LG G7, however it is the subject of a lot of discussion with some suggesting the G7 has been delayed or maybe ditched, which LG can instead unveil an update to its LG V30 at the show. Will that update will be about LG V40? I don’t think so, because the phone rumored to arrive in February 2018 will be the LG V30+a. Which will have enhanced artificial intelligence then its successor LG V30.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? LG’s 2018 flagship smartphone.
- When is it out? Probably in the September or October of 2018.
- How much will it cost? Like the LG V30, the LG V40 will be around $850 to $900.
LG V40 Release Date
LG always launch their V series smartphones between September and October. The LG V10 and LG V20 were launched in October, whereas the LG V30 was launched in September. So, we expect LG can possible follow a similar observe in 2018.
On the other hand, LG has confirmed that they will no longer update about its flagship smartphones on an annual basis, because this is what their rivals are doing. They will update about their phones when they think it need updating.
The Vice Chairman and The CEO of LG Electronics, Cho Seong-Jin told The Korean Herald that, “We will unveil the new smartphones when it is needed but we will not launch it just because other rivals do.” Cho Seong-Jun also told The Korean Herald that, “We plan to retain existing models longer by, for instance, unveiling more variant models of the G series or V series.”
But its a total guess that LG will release its flagship smartphone LG V40 in between September and October.
