LG G7 Will Have A 3.5mm Headphone Jack
LG G7 will be the successor to the LG G6, which was launched in early 2017. Though there were rumours about the company rebranding its flagship smartphone, it is most likely to go ahead with the LG G7 moniker. A leak suggests that the LG G7 will have a 6.2 inch display based on M+ LCD technology. The smartphone is expected to launch by the end of April, initially in South Korea.
The M+ LCD display panel uses RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, and White) liquid crystals, to offers increased brightness. These panels consume 35% less powered compared to a typical IPS LCD panel. Using this technology, the company will be able to harvest brightness similar to an OLED panel without burn-in issues. The display will follow the iPhone X style notch with cutouts for a front-facing camera, ambient light sensor and an earpiece. Additionally, the company might also implement the Face Unlock feature using a front-facing camera.
A CAD-based 3D render also confirms that the LG G7 will retain 3.5mm headphone jack along with a USB type C port. Similarly, we can expect to see a hi-fi Quad DAC similar to the one seen on the LG V30+. Like the LG G6, the smartphone has an all-glass design, which is expected to offer wireless charging capability.
LG G7 Specs
The LG G7 will have a 6.2 inch QHD+ 2880 x 1440 px M+ LCD display with 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octa-core chipset with 4/6GB RAM. The device will have 64/128GB internal storage with a dedicated micro SD card.
The device will have a dual primary camera setup with a 16MP RGB sensor and a 16MP wide angle sensor with f/1.5 aperture. However, the literature does not have a word about the variable aperture, similar to the Galaxy S9/S9+.
