LG launched its LG G8X Thinq smartphone with dual-screen back in December in India. The device was a successor to the LG G8 Thinq and LG G8S Thinq. There are reports that the brand is working on their new flagship phone i.e. LG G9. There are some reports that the brand is launching the LG K43 smartphone soon. A new LG device has appeared in the GeekBench Listing. Every brand tests its device before the launch, so no wonders that the device has appeared in GeekBench.
The device sports a model number i.e. “LGE LM-KM430IM”, as the model number itself suggests that it will be the upcoming LG K43. There were reports that LG is also gearing up the new LG K50 smartphone in the “K” series. The LG K43 will sit between the previous LG K40 and the upcoming LG K50 smartphone. As usual, the GeekBench listing reveals some key specifications of the smartphone. Firstly the device will run on Android 10 out of the box on top of LG’s UI. MediaTek’s Helio P22 chipset will power the LG K43 smartphone. The same chipset which we have seen in LG’s K40, K50, and K50S smartphone.
This MediaTek Helio P22 chipset pairs with 4GB of RAM. Talking about the GeekBench scores, the new LG K43 has scored 828 in the Single-Core Score and 3908 in the Multi-Core Score. The smartphone may sport a waterdrop notch or U shaped notch in the display. Sometimes the LG K43 may sport a bigger display, bigger battery and improved cameras compared to its predecessor.
Except for this, we don’t have any information about the upcoming smartphone. The Korean brand may sometime announce it on or before the MWC 2020.
As per the reports, LG will unveil its new “V series smartphone i.e LG V60 Thinq in the Mobile World Congress 2020 along with another 5G smartphone. Some reports suggest that the new LG V60 Thinq 5G will arrive with dual screens. The LG V60 Thinq 5G will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 which pairs X55 modem for 5G connectivity. However, the name of the second 5G smartphone which will launch with LG V60 Thinq is unknown.
To recall, the LG G8X Thinq was priced at Rs 49,999 in India. The device offers a 6.4-inch FHD+ FullVision OLED display with an aspect ratio of 19:5:9 on the inside and a 2.1-inch Mono Cover Display outside.
