Rumors suggested that Samsung was planning to introduce an updated design for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ this year that featured narrower bezels above and below the display, but those plans were cancelled. However, this seems to have given LG an upper hand as the company is rumoured to bring its upcoming flagship handset, tipped as LG G7, with even higher screen-to-body ratio than the LG G6. Naturally, none of this has been confirmed by LG, but we're now seeing renders of the supposed device start to the hit the web.
Adding to this rumour is a new render image spotted by Tiger Mobiles website. The render reveals the front side of the device, which confirms an 18:9 ratio bezel-less screen coupled with a dual set of front cameras. Of note, there is no visible bezel at all at the bottom of the phone. But it's also possible that LG aped Apple's brilliant iPhone X design, which curves the bottom of the screen behind itself at the bottom of the device so that the display controller can be hidden inside behind the display rather than underneath it. Going by recent trends, the South Korean firm might release its 2018 flagship, the LG G7 imminently, with March looking the most likely launch month.
