Article Before the Launch
LG is set to launch the LG G7 ThinQ on the 2nd of next month and before then, it is obvious that most of the specs are already leaked and the full image likewise also.
Fortunately or otherwise, the phone comes with notch display, pleasant or unpleasant, we aren’t seeing the notch design ending soon. The upcoming Android Smartphone comes with a weird codename; ‘ThinQ’ I still find the addition of that code-name amusing and somehow clumsy.
The LG G7 isn’t the first of their phone to come with such codename, we already had the LG ’G7 Neo’ and the LG V30s ThinQ. One of the best highlights from the rumored specs on the G7 is the LG’s latest LCD technology called Super Bright QHD+ display up to 1,000 nits. And it enables you to see more brighter, sharper in a dazzling six colors (Auto, Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game, and Expert) with the 100% of DCI-P3 color space and consume less battery capacity than its predecessor, the company claims.
From the view of the above image, the phone packs a Full Screen, Notch display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 6.1” inches diagonal with QHD+ resolution, 3120 x 1440 pixels and to add more flavor to the phone, the company claims that the new size is also complemented by “almost 50 percent slimmer bottom bezel” than the G6.
LG are big time competitors with OLED screen but delivers downgrading display for their V30, probably, that is the reason, why Samsung no longer considered them as competitors but the company is striving for the best in the upcoming G7. The LCD display is spotless, clearer and yep, it has been enabled with feature that allows you to black out the display notch.
The LG G7 ThinQ might also feature AI modes for camera scene recognition and on the side of the phone (not yet sure), it will spot a dedicated button for Google Assistant. The launching date is May 2nd, stay updated.
