Are you excited about the upcoming LG G7?

Are you excited about the upcoming LG G7?
LG is taking its sweet time with its next flagship, that's for sure, but we do know it's coming. The company hasn't really waved the white flag or anything, and some prominent leaksters have been posting tiny tidbits of information about the G7 (or should we call it the G7 ThinQ?).

LG has had a rough few years — the G3 was a nice flagship, though the G4 failed to recapture its spark, and the G5 really missed the mark with its modular concept. But last year's LG G6 and LG V30 were pretty nice smartphones. Unfortunately, they were overlooked and underappreciated since the company had lost some of its momentum and the customers were looking elsewhere.

But if the company manages to stay on track and release another pair of cool top-tier phones this year, things might start looking up for it again. Or could they?

We thought we'd ask — are you excited at all for the upcoming G7 or have you lost all interest in what LG has to offer?

Are you excited about the LG G7 (ThinQ)?

Yes! I can hardly wait!
Eh, I'll see what it has, but I don't care that much right now
LG is still making phones?

no, there's a notch.

I think most would agree that the notch is a complete miss. If the recent Reddit poll they had is to be believed, LG is worried about the notch as well, and the poll showed a pretty clear "NOPE" feeling towards the notch. While it may be too late for the G7 (I bet they'll give you a software "hide" option), I believe they will NOT go with the notch for the V40 (at least I hope.)

Problem is, the G7 is rumored to have a LCD screen. So even if it will have software option to hide the notch it will still be visible.

It is unfortunate that LG made the mistake of following those lower level chinese brands in copying Craapple's tasteless design. They should have looked at Samsung for inspiration and they would easily be more successful. However, the phone still looks very interesting and knowing LG, they make quality products.

A bit disappointed with our LG brother :( Why with that stupid notch though? I'll kick off an online petition for LG to revoke this ridiculous trend. Don't forget Samsung & LG are the real innovators not copycat like those Chinese OEM.

"Don't forget Samsung & LG are the real innovators not copycat like those Chinese OEM" Sure they are. What were the innovations for the S series this year?, copied animoji from Apple and slowmo ripped off from Sony. Plus LG Mobile wont exist in 3 years, they are currently losing $1 billion a year and LG wont stand that for long.

I disagree. I think the only true innovator in the two is LG. While sasmsunmg is just a plain s**tty copycat.

Yes but would be more excited if it has an Amoled screen not LCD. Nice that its not going to be ultra wide like most of the current flagship mobiles.

still using my V20 and it looks like LG has gone downhill sadly. i love my removable battery so i can swap it out for a fully charged one whenever, the second screen is awesome, as is the IR blaster and headphone jack/Quad DAC. but sealing in the battery and putting in a notch just because Apple did it is pathetic. it's sad to see a company that was once innovative and unafraid to make something bold now just try and clone every other device on the market -_-

Not with that notch! I thought LG was an innovator not follower.

I would seriously consider the G7 if it's notch-less.

I don't have the same visceral response to "the notch" as many people. Overall, it seems like this is going to be a great phone. Some competition for Samsung (my preferred brand) and other top brands is a good thing. Even the curios name ThinQ to match the LG IoTs doesn't make me pause. It's my belief we'll still call the phone a G7. I'll give it a try.

Looking forward to the official reveal announcement for the G7 it's coming along nicely.

I'd be more excited for a Note 7 than a G7.

56 people aware enough to visit this site, take the poll, and actually select "LG is still making phones". Obvious trolls are obvious.

The Notch is acceptable only ...and only if it doesnt carry a chin.. A phone with a notch and a chin IMO is the stupdist thing any phone manufacture can do.

I'm more excited about a V40 with the headphone socket on top, no stupid notch on an OLED screen and tons of storage.
