The said device matches the rumored specs of the Judy phone from LG although it has an OLED screen, not an MLCD.
What makes the Neo so confidential is the fact that it closely resembles the iPhone X.

LG may have been struggling with Android devices, but it never abandoned the Android Wear although other companies decided to abandon the market. Last year, the company released the Watch Style and the Watch Sport through a collaboration with Google. This year, LG decided to upgrade the features of its Android West although there isn’t much information on the improvements or if the company pursued another collaboration with the search engine company.
While details were scarce on the LG Android Wear watch, the Q7 and the V35 smartphone, it seems like the public has much to look forward to from this South Korean company.
