LG G7 ThinQ With An iPhone X Like Notch Leaked In Live Images
LG was expected to launch the LG G7 at Mobile World Congress 2018. However, days before the event, LG CEO conceded that the company will rework on its next flagship device. It was also revealed that the LG G7 was showcased behind closed doors at MWC 2018 when an Israeli publication leaked its images. Now, live images of the LG G7 have been leaked and they reveal a couple of important aspects. The LG G7 will be launched as the LG G7 ThinQ and also sport an iPhone X-like notch.
The company launched the LG V30S ThinQ at MWC 2018, a standard LG V30+ with the new software-based AI features. Similarly, the LG G7 ThinQ is also expected to have a wide array of software-based AI capabilities, which explains the ThinQ moniker.
There has been an industry-wide discussion about Android smartphone makers adopting the notch. OnePlus has already conceded that the OnePlus 6 will have a notch and the conversation is bound to be fueled once the LG G7 ThinQ is launched. Unfortunately, the leaked images do not reveal the bottom part of the smartphone, which means we can’t say for certain whether the G7 ThinQ will also have a chin. However, recent renders have imagined the device to sport a chin, just like the OnePlus 6 will.
LG G7 ThinQ Specs
The LG G7 ThinQ with model number LG-G710TM is expected to have a 6.2 inch QHD+ 2880 x 1440 px M+ LCD display with 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the device will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octa-core chipset with 4/6GB RAM. The smartphone will have 64GB or 128GB internal storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot. The smartphone is also likely to have an IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. A CAD-based 3D render has also confirmed that the smartphone will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The smartphone will have a dual primary camera setup with a 16MP RGB sensor and a 16MP wide angle sensor with an f/1.5 aperture. However, after the Galaxy S9 was launched with a variable feature, we could see the LG G7 ThinQ sporting something similar. So far, we do not know much about the front-facing camera. It is, however, expected to have the Face Unlock feature which has slowly become a norm for all smartphones.
