There are reports that LG is drastically rethinking its smartphone strategy and the upcoming G9 ThinQ could be downgraded from a flagship to a more modest mid-range smartphone.
As it looks, LG is very keen to use the Snapdragon 765G chipset in the upcoming LG G9 ThinQ. The model is unlikely to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. But it will be 5G capable.
That probably means that the LG V60 ThinQ will remain the only flagship in the South Korean manufacturer's range. But you can't really fight against the competition with that.
However, using the Snapdragon 765G SoC would keep the price down while providing more than enough performance for most applications. The SoC is already used by a large number of mobile phones, in particular the Oppo Reno 3, ZTE Axon 11, Nokia 8.3 5G, Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G and others.
It is more interesting that the upcoming Google Pixel 5 should also come on the market with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G due to price expectations. Since most Snapdragon 765G models are close to the $ 600 mark, it wouldn't be unreasonable that the LG G9 ThinQ will also cost similarly.
As of the release date for the LG G9 ThinQ, there is still disagreement. Earlier this year, it was said that it should be presented in the second half of 2020. But the corona virus could spoil the appointment.
