Appears the G-series is indeed confirmed dead (UPDATE: Now the LG 'Velvet')

Recommended Posts

Or, at the very least, its dead as a high end phone series.  Sounds like they're going with a new more midrange line and probably staying with the V-series going forward to compete at high end:

Sad!

I've satisfactorily owned the LG G2, G3, G4 and G7.

Have owned the LG G3-8. Was looking forward to the 9. Now second guessing what will be my next phone. Was hoping to use the 9 to make the jump to 5G.

Yep, I know.   This begs the obvious question of, is the phone going to be available in Blue, such that users can say they have an LG Blue Velvet phone? 😂

And of course Red Velvet, and the first time one gets run over it's a Crushed Velvet. Perhaps a Velvet Elvis edition?

Does anyone know if this phone will even come to Sprint? We didn't get the LG V60. I'm really interested in the Velvet but wondering if we can even buy it.

    • This is in fort bend county, they have the entire 196MHz there.
    • I know the guy who'll be doing drive testing for their Fastest Networks report in Austin, hence asking. What's funny is, when they do those tests, TMo will be at its nadir, while Sprint will be very much alive still in tons of places.
    • Honestly the past 2 - 3 weeks I have seen a big improvement in download speeds even during heavy foot traffic on the Sprint Tower at Fashion Square Mall in Ch’ville. This is the one I’m always connected to at my apartment up the street. Upload speeds still averaging 2.4-5.xx but download speeds use to be around 25 down during heavy foot traffic times and 30-40 download speeds when the load wasn’t so heavy. Where my apartment is I’m always connected to Band 41. I am impressed that the download speeds have made a big improvement lately. 
    • I don't have a Sprint phone to check, but does this mean Sprint Small Cells are no longer operational? IIRC, 160 Mhz was all the EBS/BRS spectrum Sprint owned in Houston. (I remember reading they owned or had leases for the entire EBS/BRS Band, but I don't feel like searching the FCC site to verify this.) Not turning off the small cells using LTE UE Relay for backhaul (which is all of them AFAIK) could create issues if all Sprint owned in Houston was 160 Mhz.
    • T-Mobile offers roaming on their WCDMA/HSPA network for CDMA-less Verizon devices; the agreement is reciprocal. I believe LTE roaming on Verizon is restricted to only certain areas.
