LG G7 ThinQ Confirmed For May 2nd Unveil, Leaked Image Exposes Notchy Design

LG G7 ThinQ lineup
The LG G7 ThinQ is official, and it will be unveiled at an event held in New York City on May 2nd. The news come straight from the horse’s mouth, as LG confirmed the launch details on its official [South Korean] website.

According to LG, the G7 ThinQ will expand the proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) into the smartphone realm and will build upon the work that it started with the V30S ThinQ. LG claims that the G7 ThinQ's AI camera will be able to respond to a variety of voice commands and that the smartphone will be able to intelligently interact with other devices (we're assuming other ThinQ-branded products and home appliances from LG).

In addition to the confirmation of the G7 ThinQ's official debut, a render of the smartphone has leaked to the internet, and it shows the smartphone with carrying color options including blue, red, black, and grey. The leak also confirms what we've already seen in previous leaks: the G7 ThinQ will have a notched display, which was popularized (for better or worse) by the Apple iPhone X. Out back, we see vertically-stacked dual cameras and a fingerprint reader. There's also an extra button the left side of the smartphone, which we can only assume is there to activate the G7 ThinQ's AI wizardry.

Rumored specs for the G7 ThinQ include the requisite Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. It is also expected to feature 64GB of internal storage and a 6.1-inch display. Those specs put the G7 ThinQ in familiar territory with the blockbuster Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, but behind the upcoming OnePlus 6 which is confirmed to have up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.
