South Korean giant LG announced to formally unveil its next premium flagship smartphone LG G7ThinQ on May 2 in New York City and May 3 in Seoul.
LG G7 ThinQ will be the first G series smartphone to adopt the ThinQ name, created to identify all of LG’s consumer electronics, home appliances and services that utilise artificial intelligence to deliver practical, consumer benefits.
“Now is the time when manufacturers have to pay close attention to what customers actually need and want for their smartphones. With the LG G7ThinQ, LG is continuing to deliver on its promise to enhance core technologies to meet customers’ real life needs by incorporating AI technologies that are more than features, they are part of the user experience,” said Hwang Jeong-hwan, President of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
The LG G7ThinQ is built on the foundation laid by the LG V30SThinQ, the first LG smartphone to embrace AI as part of its core features. The V30SThinQ incorporated AI technologies that enhanced the most frequently used features including voice recognition and Vision AI to improve camera convenience. The LG G7ThinQ will offer improved interconnectivity with LG devices such as home appliances and TVs.
LG will host media events to introduce the LG G7ThinQ on May 2 at the Metropolitan West in New York and on May 3 at I’PARK Mall in Seoul.
Rumours has it that the G7 will have a display notch, a M-LCD+ panel, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip. The LG G7 ThinQ will be available in five colours “Aurora Black,” “Platinum Grey,” “Moroccan Blue,” “Moroccan Blue (Matte),” and “Raspberry Rose.”
The LG G7 will have two 16MP rear cameras, a step up from the 13MP+13MP cameras of the G7, as well as the 16MP + 13MP rear cameras of the V30. The dual camera setup will have a standard camera and a wide-angle module.
The standard camera will also have 10-bit HDR compatibility to capture more colours just like the V30. The G7 will also be a wholly HDR10-compatible phone, as it will be able to record HDR10-quality video and also play back HDR10 videos on its display.
