LG G9 ThinQ Expected To Launch With Snapdragon 765G Chipset

Most established smartphone manufacturers offer one or two new, high-end mobiles every year or every six months, which are known as their flagship devices. For instance, let’s consider Samsung. The brand has two flagship smartphones series in its portfolio, the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Note. The company dedicatedly revamps the line up with new smartphones once in a year. LG falls in the similar category. The company offers two flagship smartphone line ups — the V-series and the G-series. The Korean tech giant packs every new smartphone in these two-line ups with high-end features, such as the most powerful SoC available in the market, a cutting-edge camera setup, and one of the best displays in the industry.

This year LG is all set to take a different path as per the rumour mill. As it is known to us, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is one of the most powerful chipsets in the market, and this is the SoC that you see in most of the flagship smartphone nowadays. However, according to the report from Naver, the upcoming G-series of the flagship smartphone, LG G9 ThinQ will not pack the high-end, Snapdragon 865 SoC. Instead, it is now said to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset, which is a mid-range SoC.

What can be the reason behind LG’s such decision? The Snapdragon 865 is a costly chipset and that every smartphone to feature this SoC is priced around $1,000. So, if LG G9 ThinQ would have been to pack the Snapdragon 865 SoC, it will cost around $1,000. And at that price, people are not preferring an LG flagship smartphone nowadays. They are instead choosing a one from Samsung or an Apple as these flagship smartphones have a better feature set for the same price as the ones from LG. So, if LG goes with the Snapdragon 765G for the G9 ThinQ, it can offer the smartphone at a much lower price.

According to our speculations, the G9 ThinQ will be offered as a mid-range device. At that price, the G9 ThinQ will be an attractive offering from the brand. We do not have any other information as of now.  Let’s wait for the launch date to spill all the beans.
