LG G7 ThinQ Renders Leaked Again
LG will be banking on its upcoming flagship smartphone to kickstart a flailing smartphone business. LG’s flagship smartphones, over the year, have got most of the things right but, always failed to impress against the likes of Galaxy S series and Apple iPhones. With the LG G7 ThinQ, LG would want to change that perception.
Evan Blass, who recently posted a render of the G7 ThinQ, hs not posted a new image that shows off the upcoming flagship device from all angles. Interestingly, the renders also confirm that the LG G7 ThinQ will indeed have a Google Assistant button, similar to the Bixby Button found on recent Samsung flagship smartphones. As has been the case with other LG smartphones, the company has retained the 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom of the device. We expect the G7 ThinQ to also have a high-quality DAC for better sound production via the headphone jack.
Other than that, the render just reaffirms a few aspects of the G7 ThinQ that we already knew of. The LG G7 ThinQ will have an iPhone X like notch at the top but, also have a chin at the bottom. While Apple was able to maintain uniform bezels across the three sides of the iPhone X by curving the OLED display from the bottom, LG might not go that route. As the CEO of OnePlus explained, while that is an effective way to get rid of the chin, it is also a very expensive way. Keeping that in mind, LG would want to make sure the G7 ThinQ is priced close to the Galaxy S9 to make it competitive.
The fingerprint sensor is placed on the back of the device, just below a vertically dual-camera setup. Unlike previous LG phones, the fingerprint sensor won’t double up as a power button. Instead, this time around, LG has taken a more conventional route by placing the power button on the side.
The launch of the LG G7 ThinQ is scheduled for May 2nd where we will get all the details about the pricing and availability of the device. With so much of chopping and changing leading up to this launch, let’s see how the LG G7 ThinQ performs in the real world.
