LG Reportedly Discontinued LG G Series, Starting From LG G9

A reasonable decision by LG as the company is no longer a name that attracts a lot of attention from users on the mobile market.

In 2019, LG launched two flagship smartphones, LG G8 and LG V50 ThinQ at the same time, so the fact that it only launched the LG V60 ThinQ at the event in February has made many LG fans worry. We have previously heard that the LG G9 could be positioned in the mid-range instead high-end segment. Now, it seems that LG has finally decided to stop working on the G series - a decision that is considered quite reasonable.

The news was leaked by a reporter who attended a private press conference between LG and South Korean media companies. Accordingly, LG is seeking to revamp its smartphone strategy by giving up the G series and replacing it with a newer series at a more affordable price.

A well-known fact is that LG in the past few years is no longer a big player in the smartphone industry, as Chinese brands are competing harder than ever. Moreover, LG's new models also lack attractive features for users. The new smartphone lineup that replaces the G series seems to be a new attempt that LG has put in order to capture a small piece of the market share.

What is LG's new phone?

Naver reported that LG is trying to recreate the success of the "chocolate phone" model - LG KG800 Chocolate - which was quite famous in 2006.

The new unknown phone model will probably have four rear cameras with a 48MP main camera, and use a chipset in the Snapdragon 700 series. This is the chip that often appears on mid-range and high-end phones.

The new phone is also expected to have a 6.7- 6.9-inch screen and a second secondary display, which is a trend that LG is quite interested in. The battery of the device will have a capacity of 4,000mAh.

With the new smartphone, it seems like LG is aiming for a price lower than the price that LG G9 will be sold, and it seems to be saving another higher-end device, aiming at the Korean market where LG is still is a remarkable name (and also where the 5G network is widely available, which is an ideal market for upcoming high-end 5G phones).

It's not clear when and where LG's new good-priced phones will launch, but considering the information is still very vague at the present time, it is likely that the new device is only an interesting idea. Perhaps we'll see it later this year - a long enough time from the LG V60 ThinQ for the new product to attract the necessary attention from consumers.
