We are just around the corner for the LG G7 ThinQ launch and there’s a lot that we already know. And from things we know so far, the phone is really impressive. The company has made some serious changes so that it doesn’t get overshadowed by the competition. Here’s everything we know about the LG G7 ThinQ so far.
LG G7 ThinQ has an all-new design
On the front, you are welcomed with an all-new 6.1-inch Fullvision display that goes up to 1000 nits, much higher than that of the predecessor.
The phone, thanks to the minimal bezels, has an extra-tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio, similar to that of the iPhone X. And the similarity doesn’t end there. The LG G7 also has the iPhone X like notch on the top.
The display is also said to cover 100 percent of DCI-P3 color gamut. And since it’s 2018, using “Artificial Intelligence”, the phone will adapt the screen color settings according to the content that is displayed on the screen. The panel is also 30% more power efficient than that of the LG G6.
LG G7 ThinQ: Specifications and Features
The G7 ThinQ being the flagship phone should undoubtedly be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. And it makes sense too. Last May, The Investor published a report stating LG would be partnering with Qualcomm to release the LG G7 with the Snapdragon 845 processor.
The other important feature of the phone has to be the dedicated button for launching the Google Assistant. This LG G7 ThinQ rumor has been confirmed by multiple sources.
The phone is also confirmed to launch with ThinQ software, LG’s AI-powered software platform that is shared across all the LG Smart appliances.
LG G7 ThinQ Rumors about the Camera Tech
According to a leaked document, the LG G7 ThinQ will include support for Google lens and will feature a dual 16MP rear camera. And looking at the past implementation, the secondary lens probably will be used for taking wide-angle shots.
Also, LG will be using AI to better recognize the subject in the frame to adjust camera settings accordingly.
What We Want To See
1) Improved Software Experience
LG makes solid phones but is mostly let down by the software experience. The LG V30 in many ways fixed that will a much richer software experience. We hope that LG G7 grows on that and improves the software experience further.
2) More RAM
With even mid-range smartphones from other manufacturers launching with 6GB of RAM, we expect LG to come up with at least 6GB of RAM for the G7 if not more.
If the rumors of the phone launching with 4GB RAM turns out to be true, it will definitely be disappointing.
3) Competitive Pricing
For one reason or the other, flagship phones are getting more expensive. We certainly don’t want LG to follow suit. The G7 will be a sure hit if the company can launch the phone in $600 price range.
LG will launch the LG G7 ThinQ in New York on 2nd of May. Pricing and availability of the phone will be announced on the very day.
With so much information about the phone on the table, let’s hope LG still has a few surprises left for us at the event.
