Also of note is that the LG G7 ThinQ does have a display notch. The fingerprint scanner is also situated at the back, and the extra hardware button for Google Assistant and Google Lens can also be seen. LG says that it designed the smartphone keeping three things in mind: Meaningful AI, solid fundamentals, continuous upgrades. The new flagship device boasts a 6.1-inch display, with a polished metal rim and glass front and back.
The display on the G7 ThinQ can be set to different modes, depending on the content on the screen. Similarly, Voice AI helps the smartphone to deliver better output on voice commands.
Called the Boombox Speaker it uses the inner space of the case as a resonance chamber to amplify sound more than ten-fold compared to a typical smartphone. Another highlight in the display is that it offers a "Super Bright" technology which will increase brightness up to 1,000 nits.
Processor: The flagship is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 chipset. The only difference is that the G7 ThiQ has 4GB RAM with 64GB inbuilt storage, the LG G7+ ThiQ has 6GB RAM with 128GB inbuilt storage. Device pricing will be provided at a later date.
The device has support for Quick Charge 4.0 and comes with wireless charging functionality also, something LG has been offering for quite some time.
The new flagship smartphone will run Android 8 Oreo out of the box LG's AI Pack 2.0. Dimensions measure 153.2 x 71.9 x 7.9mm and it weighs 162g.
This intelligent feature analyzes the objects in front of the camera and adjusts the camera settings according to the scene.
The highlights of the rear include a dual 16 MP camera having an aperture of f/1.6 and f/1.9 respectively. Up front, it has an 8MP wide-angle sensor. The AI CAM on the G7 ThinQ now offers 19 shooting modes, which is two times more than what was offered in the V30S ThinQ. In addition, the AI also makes low-light photography easier. You might notice the bezels are not symmetrical on the G7.
The power button is now on the right-hand side while the volume buttons are on the left. That kind of defeats the purpose - unless the purpose is to look like a bad iPhone clone.
Sprint further confirms that it will be opening pre-orders on May 25th, but with the added detail that it will have the phone available for purchase on June 1st.
When LG announced that the G6 would sport a 18:9 aspect ratio we were puzzled but soon after that announcement the aspect ratio became almost normal. Users also have an option of double tapping on the dedicated button to launch Google Lens. The G7 ThinQ has a dedicated Google Assistant button that you can press once to launch the Assistant or press and hold to start talking.
