More information about the LG G7 ThinQ's cameras and optional notch surfaces

While we've already passed along leaked press renders and rumored specs of the LG G7 ThinQ, tonight we have some more information pertaining to the phone that we would like to let you know about. First, the dual camera setup on back will consist of twin 16MP sensors. One will be a regular RGB camera with a f/1.6 aperture, while the other will be a 107-degree wide-angle lens. As we previously mentioned, AI will help the handset recognize the object in the viewfinder, take into account the available lighting, and automatically adjust the camera settings and make recommendations. LG will also introduce what it calls "SuperPixel." This feature allows adjacent pixels to join together allowing for better photographs to be taken under low-light conditions.

AI will also be used to extend the capabilities of Google Assistant so that users can control more of their LG G7 ThinQ hands-free. And speaking of the notch (actually no one was, but it is the elephant in the room), LG G7 ThinQ users will reportedly be able to make it 'disappear' by blacking out the pixels to the left and right of what many call an eyesore. Last month, we showed you images of what supposedly is the LG G7 ThinQ and some pictures showed the device with a notch, and others didn't. While we don't get bonus points for being prescient, we did write on March 1st, "The screen on the LG G7 seems to have an optional notch setting." 

The LG G7 ThinQ will be unveiled in New York on May 2nd. Thanks to the International Date Line (which is NOT a dating app), it will be May 3rd in South Korea when the announcement is made there.
