We are very, very soon going to see LG’s next flagship phone — the G7 ThinQ. But that’s not going to make the 2017-made LG G6 entirely obsolete. On the contrary — the latter still runs pretty well, has a small body with a large screen in it, and comes with cool wide-angle cameras.

Honor 9 Lite was at the Chinese regulatory commission about a week ago, so today’s announcement might not be a total surprise for some of you who’ve read our previous report. However, we now have more information on the phone’s price and availability, in case you’re considering buying one.
