Even though the rumours have hinted at LG Electronics potentially be dropping the LG G7 branding for its 2018 flagship smartphone, it appears the name scheme will stay in place. In fact, LG Electronics has just announced in South Korea that the next premium smartphone will launch as LG G7 ThinQ on May 2nd, at a press event which will be taking place in New York.
LG G7 ThinQ will be the second smartphone featuring A.I. technology (after LG V30 ThinQ release back in March) in a multitude of other gadgets (including IoT Devices and appliances) that are coming this year from LG under ThinQ branding.
Apart from the press event and the official confirmation of its marketing name, LG G7 ThinQ has also leaked in a press render which allegedly reveals five of the colours the smartphone will be available around the world: Aurora Black, Platinum Grey, Moroccan Blue, Moroccan Blue Matte and Raspberry Rose (burgundy).
As for its key specs, LG G7 ThinQ will feature a brand new 6-inch M+ LCD display with QHD+ screen resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio, and there is a notch, too. The phone will sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 CPU, 6GB of RAM, a dual camera setup at the back and run Android Oreo.
Pricing hasn’t been announced, but we know that it will be available for preorder in Aurora Black right after the press event. The official debut of LG G7 ThinQ in South Korea is set for May 3, which makes us believe that the smartphone will start shipping a week later in LG’s home country.
