More than half a year has been talked about about LG's next "true" flagship, the long-awaited G7, but only a week away from its debut, we have the first pictures of the device at acceptable quality. Many of the rumors that circulated during this period are thus confirmed, but there are also some more or less pleasant surprises, depending on the preferences of each type of user
The images come from Evan Blass, editor at Venture Beat and professional leak-er on Twitter, which has images and details about mobile devices almost before each release. LG will retain the branding it launched with the V30S at Mobile World Congress, the official name of its new flagship being G7 ThinQ, which is beautifully printed on the back of the glass case. On the front of the display is obvious the contour in the display, a controversial element, but in this case and as useless as it seems to be more a design flair than a limitation of space
G7 ThinQ seems to have pronounced edges both under and above the display, probably the "bang" phone with the thickest frame ever before. On the back, we can see a vertically-centered dual-chamber camera, a laser beam for focus, and a circular fingerprint sensor that does not appear to be a power button either. The latter moved to the right, but a new button, dedicated to AI ThinQ functions on the left, under the volume buttons, also appeared.
This design reminds us of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S9 and their Bixby button. Samsung also reminds us of the bottom of the phone, equipped with both a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack, something we rarely see on smartphones in the past two years. According to leakages, the G7 ThinQ will be based on the Snapdragon 845 chipset, will use 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and will have a 6.1 "diagonal display with QHD + resolution
Launch is expected on May 2 at an event in the United States. Probably these are the latest unofficial details we will receive about this device before the presentation next week.
