LG is expected to showcase its next-generation G-series flagship at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 tech trade show in the coming month. The successor of the last year’s LG G8 ThinQ is mostly like to debut as LG G9 ThinQ. Well ahead of the launch, reputed tipster @OnLeaks has worked with CashKaro.com to bring the CAD renders and 360-degree video of the LG G9.
LG G9 Renders
The CAD renders reveal that the LG G9 will be sporting a front that is quite similar to the LG G8X ThinQ flagship phone that had debuted in September last year. The LG G9 can be seen sporting a waterdrop notch screen in the new renders. The reduced notch suggests that the smartphone won’t be featuring the palm recognition and hand gestures that were made available on the LG G8.

The rear shell of the phone features a horizontal camera system that houses as many as four lenses. By this, the LG G9 will become the first LG phone to flaunt quad rear cameras. The LG G9 will be one of the few flagship phones from mainstream brands to continue to sport a 3.5mm audio jack. It can be seen on the bottom edge of the device along with a USB-C port and an external speaker. There is a SIM slot on the top edge of the device and it also seems to be equipped with a dedicated trigger button for Google Assistant on its right edge. The volume up and down buttons along with a power key can be spotted on its left spine.
There is no information available on the other specifications of the LG G9. However, it is very likely to be equipped with Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. It could be the first G-series phone to support 5G connectivity. Apart from LG G9, the South Korean company is also expected to unleash the LG V60 ThinQ smartphone at the MWC 2020. The device is expected to arrive with improved dual screen accessory.
