LG G7 ThinQ Render Leaked Ahead Of May 2nd Launch
The successor to LG’s not so popular LG G6, the LG G7 ThinQ will launch on the 2nd of May. LG famously skipped its regular Mobile World Congress launch for the LG G7 as the company tries to revive its dwindling smartphone business. The LG G7 ThinQ will be the beginning of LG’s revamping process of its flagship smartphones. So far, it looks like the G7 ThinQ will be quite an offering from LG with its new design.
A new render of the LG G7 ThinQ re-affirming one key detail and revealing a significant design change has been leaked online. It has been a known secret that the LG G7 ThinQ will sport a notch like the iPhone X. The new render re-affirms that and also gives us a glimpse of the size of the chin the G7 ThinQ will have.
CEO of OnePlus, Carl Pei explained that the only reason the iPhone X doesn’t have a chin is that it has a curved display. At the bottom of each display is a ribbon for connecting it to the device’s logic board, which means a thin chin becomes necessary. Apple decided to curb that with a flexible OLED, which, even though is a great solution, it is also an expensive one.
One significant design change that the render reveals is the placement of the power button. LG flagship devices like the G6, V30 have had the power button housed in the fingerprint sensor on the back. However, the power button on the LG G7 ThinQ will have a more conventional placement on the left-hand side of the device.
The LG G7 ThinQ is expected to run on the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset and have up to 6GB of RAM. Like LG did with the V30 ThinQ, the LG G7 ThinQ will have a few AI capabilities. The camera app on the G7 ThinQ will have smart scene detection modes wherein the camera will automatically adjust settings depending on the lighting conditions and the scene detected.
