There is any future plans to include some other business class features such as * Anti-glare non touch display * 180 degree hinge lid ?

Asked by: yosbel
Hi Yosbel. Regrettably we do not have any information on future plans that we can comment on or share about products. Any future plans are usually divulged through press releases or through public announcements at trade shows for consumer electronics and home appliances like CES in Las Vegas or IFA in Berlin. LG will showcase products that are going to be released for that year in the U.S. at CES. IFA 2018 will take place 31 August to 5 September, in Berlin. The LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 15Z980.A.AAS8U1 has features and specifications that are unique to that model number. Any changes to the features or specifications will have a different model number. If LG does have plans for a unit that has the specifications you are inquiring about, if it is a 15Z980 series laptop, it will have a different number after the 15Z980...^IFV
