LG G7 ThinQ has been made official, the company’s latest flagship smartphone. The announcement was made during an event held in New York. This is the first Android smartphone to feature a dedicated Google Assistant button, plus LG also includes AI camera functionality. LG is yet to announce when it plans to bring the flagship smartphone to India, but said the device will arrive in South Korea in the “coming months” followed by a launch in Europe, North America and Asia.
The G7 ThinQ isn’t really a breathtaking smartphone. It is a solid phone nonetheless, with a mix of good specifications and a decent design. LG G7 ThinQ sports a 6.1-inch LCD display with a resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels. Perhaps the notable features of the display is that offers a “Super Bright” mode which can increase the brightness up to 1,000 nits. Also, the screen comes with a notch which the company says can be covered or customise depending on your preference.
The rest of the specifications are pretty much standard. You will get a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB RAM/64GB storage or 6GB RAM/128GB storage, microSD card support, a 3,000mAh battery, IP68 certification, and will be running Android Oreo. The camera on the phone offers a 16MP primary sensor at f/1.6 aperture, with a wide-angle 107° 16MP shooter at a f/1.9 aperture. On the front, there’s also an 8MP snapper with a f/1.9 sensor. LG says it has added AI functionality into G7 ThinQ’s camera, which works just like the Huawei P20 Pro. So basically, it automatically adjusts camera settings based on what you’re shooting.
