LG has announced that it will showcase the G7 ThinQ smartphone on May 2 in New York and May 3 in Seoul. Based on what are probably official renders, it appears that the new flagship of the South Korean manufacturer will have a notch in the screen.
LG has not released any specifications yet, but does report that the addition of the name ‘ThinQ’ stands for the addition of various AI functionalities. For example, the phone will have a camera function that recognizes where the camera is aimed at and selects the most optimal camera mode.
The LG G7 ThinQ seems to match the support for the various AI functionalities with the LG V30S ThinQ, LG’s recently released 2018 variant of the V30, which will not appear in the Benelux. The V30S ThinQ includes separate commands for Google Assistant to control the camera with voice. For example, through the voice assistant, users can instruct the phone to take a photo with the wide-angle lens.
The Androidheadlines website has published a render of the different color variants of the G7 ThinQ; according to the site, it is an official render provided by a reliable source. The image shows that the smartphone has a notch in the screen. There are two cameras on the back, with a fingerprint scanner underneath. The V30 has the cameras side by side.
Previously leaked renders probably already showed the G7 with a notch at the top of the screen. According to telecom insider Evan Blass, the device will have a 6″ screen with a resolution of 1440×3120 pixels and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. There will also be variants with 4GB ram and 64GB storage and with 6GB ram and 128GB storage. The primary camera would have sixteen megapixels, with an f/1.6 lens.
