The LG Gram of notebooks are ultraportable computers that weigh about a kilogram, which explains the name. But is looks like LG’s next-gen models will be a bit lighter, weighing just 940 grams, or about 2.1 pounds.
At the same time, LG is apparently adding features including a fingerprint sensor built into the touchpad and a Thunderbolt 3 port.
LG hasn’t yet confirmed the existence of the new laptops, but WinFuture has some leaked specs and photos.
The 2017 LG Gram will reportedly come in three different sizes:
- LG Gram 13Z970 with a 13.3 inch display
- LG Gram 14Z970 with a 14 inch screen
- LG Gram 15Z970 with a 15.6 inch display
Each model is expected to feature the same basic specs, including Intel Core i5 and Core i7 Kaby Lake CPU options, support for up to 512GB of solid state storage, and 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS displays.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C ports, and HDMI output with support for 4K displays.
Like the 2016 LG Gram laptops with Intel Skylake chips, entry-level LG Gram laptops for 2017 will feature 34.61 Wh batteries. But higher-priced models will also be available with 60 Wh batteries for extended run time.
That’s a pretty big boost from the 52.06 Wh battery option that’s available in older models.
We’ll probably learn more about the new laptops at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
