Everything we know about LG’s upcoming G7 ThinQ
All the details about LG’s upcoming G7 ThinQ, in one post before its launch in May 2.
As early as last year, the name ‘G7’ is already making headlines amongst technology news sites and outlets, where it was first reported that LG won’t name its G6 successor as G7. However, it’s now clear that the upcoming handset is going to continue the G-series moniker, and will also contain LG’s ThinQ branding, first seen on its V30 ThinQ, which was announced on last February’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
However, in that same event as well, LG has reportedly shown a prototype of its ‘G7’ at MWC to a few people in the press, in closed doors, but that managed to get leaked in a video which was on the article linked below.
The phone will contain LG’s proprietary ThinQ AI technology
This is one thing for sure. 2018 flagships are all marketed with AI-capabilities onboard, starting with the likes of Samsung, ASUS, and other smartphone manufacturers out there.
Aside from having it on smart home appliances, LG’s ThinQ AI is now being added to smartphones and other smart consumer electronic devices.
According to LG from the launch of its V30 ThinQ, the focus of their ThinQ AI platform for smartphones is on the camera and voice recognition features. It’s not clear if the G7 will contain the same AI-assisted features added on the V30 ThinQ, or will have something new.
It will be available in several colors
The official press render leaked a few days ago, and according to it, we’ll see the G7 ThinQ in these colors, namely Aurora Black, Platinum Grey, Moroccan Blue, Moroccan Blue (Matte), and Raspberry Rose.
One thing is for sure, the color availability may vary by region and/or carrier.
It will also have a notch
Nothing new, nothing noteworthy here.
It will be launched in May 2 at New York and May 3 in Seoul, Korea
LG’s unveiling of the G7 ThinQ will happen on May 2 in New York City and on May 3 at the I’PARK Mall in Seoul, LG’s home country. It will be launched in other key markets perhaps within the month as well.
The G7 ThinQ, according to several leaks and press releases, will sport a notched front panel, a dual back camera and a fingerprint reader below it.
Along with a 6-inch pOLED display with a 3120×1440 resolution, which translates to a 19.5:9 aspect ratio—the same aspect ratio found in the Apple iPhone X.
Under the hood, it’s supposed to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor, being paired with 4GB/6GB of RAM & and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. There’s also a 3,000mAh battery, a dual camera with a regular and wide-angle lens at the back, and the same AI features found in the recently announced LG V30S ThinQ.
It will be endorsed by Korean pop boy-band BTS
LG is known for collaborating with huge Korean pop groups and names as their brand ambassadors and endorsers of their products. Previously, they tapped BLACKPINK & K.A.R.D for the LG G6, Lee Sung-kyung for LG Q6, TWICE for LG V30 and now, BTS for its upcoming G7 ThinQ.
In the video above, the boy band teased 7 amazing features that they liked about the new phone while they were using it.
Effectively using their large audience and fanbase, the collaboration with Korean stars shows that LG wants to step up their marketing of their products, and reach a wider range of potential consumers who might be interested on their products.
That’s all for now, and stay tuned here on SnowTechStuff for more details about the G7 ThinQ as we are approaching its launch date on May 2nd!
