LG G7 ThinQ will be the name of LG's upcoming flagship, claims serial tipster Evan Blass. Similar to the LG V30 ThinQ, the smartphone is expected to support LG's AI initiative. While we have heard no official word on this matter yet, Blass has been right with most of his predictions lately. Also, there are several reports suggesting that LG's next flagship will have a different moniker.
In a separate leak, the front panel of the LG G7 has surfaced online. The image suggests that the smartphone will sport a display notch and a selfie flash. If this leak is legit, then we will get another smartphone with an iPhone X-like notch. Recently, LG had asked Reddit users if they would like the notch on the company's next flagship.
To LG's dismay, majority of people were repelled with the notch, while some found it unpleasant to look at. The company has since then deleted the post, probably because they didn't expect such strong opinions against the notch. Presumably, the G7 is already being developed, and there is no way to go back and do it from the scratch.
If rumors are to be believed, the LG G7 will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under its hood. Keeping up with the current trend, the smartphone will flaunt a dual rear camera setup with two 16MP sensors. The main camera will also have AI capabilities, something we have already seen in the V30 ThinQ.
The handset is further expected to pack a Quad-DAC audio system and a 3,000mAh battery. Initially, the G7 was speculated to ship with a 6.1-inch OLED display, but reports coming from LG's home country suggests otherwise. The company will rather use an LCD display on the smartphone in an attempt to reduce the production costs.
However, the authenticity of this information is yet to be confirmed, so you better take it with a pinch of salt or two. The LG G7 is expected to release sometime in May and more leaks will pop up in the coming days. As for the pricing, it is likely to cost more than $800 (approximately over Rs. 52,000).
