According to a South Korean publication, the G7 ThinQ smartphone has encountered lackluster sales as the company could sell only half the number of 3 million internal sales goal. It is speculated that LG is readying 500,000 units of V40 ThinQ for the initial sale. The smartphone may hit the market in the first week of October or the 10th of the same month.
The publication has also claimed that LG is working on the LG V45 to launch its first 5G smartphone in 2019. The handset may borrow specs from G7 ThinQ and V40 ThinQ in a bid to reduce expenses. The V45 ThinQ may feature the same display panel and camera modules that are arriving on the upcoming V40 ThinQ.
The report also claims that LG was working two flagship phones with Phoenix and Falcon codenames. Among the two, Falcon phone is said to be inferior than Phoenix. Since LG reportedly failed to convince carriers to sell the Falcon model, the company sold it to Google. The Pixel 3 XL that has appeared in the recent leaks could be the Falcon phone made by LG.
