LG G7 ThinQ Will Launch Next Month as iPhone X Copycat? Specs, Release Date, Leaks Detailed
The LG G7 ThinQ is back on track for its launch after it had been allegedly canceled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. However, the next-generation flagship phone was rumored being showed off to partners behind closed doors.
According to BGR, the South Korean electronics company LG really did consider canceling the previously called LG G7 possibly for the reason that the device seems to steal the design of the current iPhone X, which was believed to be the first iPhone in four years to receive a major redesign. However, many speculated that the company decided not to cancel and name the device as the LG G7 ThinQ since almost but not quite every other Android phone makers are also apparently imitating the iPhone X.
Whatever the case, the release date of the LG G7 ThinQ is confirmed to be during an event in New York City this coming May 2 and then will be unveiled on May 3 in South Korea. In terms of specification, the upcoming device will flaunt a pseudo all-screen design with a notch cut out of the top, similar to the iPhone X with an expensive display design to hide the bottom chin.
The LG G7 ThinQ will support the artificial intelligence (AI) at the core to tightly integrate with other elements such as the smart home controls and the AI Cam, which will offer four enhanced filter options providing different levels of optimization. The device will feature a vertically-aligned dual-lens rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, a laser autofocus system, and a circular fingerprint sensor below it.
The LG G7 ThinQ will offer a 6-inch quad-high definition M+LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The device will get powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC processor paired with 6GB of RAM onboard. It will have 64GB of internal memory storage that can be expanded up to 2TB using a microSD card slot. The LG G7 ThinQ will come running Android 8.0 (Oreo) operating system right out of the box.
