Through the combination of personalized and useful AI functionalities with meaningful smartphone features, this is LG’s most convenient smartphone yet,” said Hwang Jeong-hwan, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

LG promises timely software updates and upgrade to Android P v9.0 through its recently inaugurated Global Software Update Center.
G7 ThinQ comes with 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, wireless charging, USB-C port and 4G LTE (Gigabit mobile download speeds).
