LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone, said to named the LG G7 ThinQ, is expected to come in a variety of color options. According to our first leaked renders, there will be five choices that will likely vary in terms of availability by region.
Details on LG’s future smartphone plans and the rumored LG G7 or LG G7 Neo code-named ‘Judy’ have been scarce up until now. Despite reports claiming LG would skip a flagship Android smartphone this year to conserve money, we’re expecting to get one that looks similar to the LG G7 Neo that popped up at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. LG did not announce a new flagship smartphone at the event, which it has done in years past, which may have been due to the level of competition. Instead, the South Korean company showed off new shades of LG G6 and a new LG V30 known as LG V30S ThinQ. The phone said to have been begun from scratch could launch alongside an LG G7 Plus at a private event in May. This would be much later than usual for a G-Series flagship
If the latest leak is of the actual LG G7 ThinQ, the device will be made available in the colors pictured above. According to Android Headlines, who first obtained the renders, these colors will include fancy names like Aurora Black, Raspberry Rose, Moroccan Blue, Platinum Grey, and Moroccan Blue (Matte). There’s also a new wallpaper with a big number seven.
Based on the renders and what we’ve heard in earlier reports, the South Korean giant’s upcoming flagship smartphone will feature the edge-to-edge ‘Full Vision’ display that started the modern trend of 18:9 aspect ratio among competitors in the high-end market with the LG G6. We’re also expecting to see a notch on this phone, which has become the trend most people don’t want OEMs adopting. LG is not the only one embracing the notch, in fact, Google’s Android P software overhaul let’s manufacturers and users tinker with different notch styles. LG’s new phone has no G7 ThinQ branding on its rear plate, but does highlight the company’s name in small print. If this remains, it sends a message to LG fans and the rest of the industry that the G Series branding will be phased out as expected. To be honest, it might be that time, since the lineup has been under performing in territories like the US, for years.
The front of the device will house a front camera and front-facing speaker. There is a dual camera setup on the back of the phone just like recent LG phones including the LG V30S ThinQ, except it will be aligned vertically instead of horizontally . The place of the fingerprint reader is the same as the LG V30, which is just below the primary camera where we like it. Along with the volume controls and power button, there will be a fourth hardware key on this phone to activate an on board AI assistant from LG. This set of features also comes over from LG’s most recent handset. We should learn more in the coming weeks.
