LG today teased that it’s got an upcoming smartphone with an all-new design language.
Hopefully this device will represent the next entry in its G series, after LG already updated its V line with the dual-screen ready V60 Thinq a couple of months ago.
FIRST Thing; Whether it arrives called the G9 or not, this new phone will have at least two distinct design elements. First up is the “3D Arc Design” where the edges of the screen and the rear of the phone are symmetrically curved. LG explains that this is meant to give the phone a more natural feeling in your hand while also having fewer sharp edges.
SECOND Thing; This new design includes a “Raindrop” camera that has three rear cameras and an LED flash in descending order by size, meant to remind you of falling raindrops. The main camera sits slightly above the surface while the other two are under glass.
“Our upcoming smartphone will draw on the rich history of classic LG designs which have always been distinctive at first touch,” said Cha Yong-duk, head of LG’s Mobile Communications Design Lab. “This handset will be a first-look at the competitive edge we will be bringing to every LG smartphone going forward.”
LG isn’t revealing when this mystery device will be fully revealed, so stay tuned and we’ll update you with more as we get it.
