LG G7 ThinQ: 5 important rumored features to anticipate
A super-bright display
Display brightness normally flies under the radar when it comes to everyday usage... until you go outside on a bright sunny day and your eyes squint after trying to make out anything on your phone's hardly-legible screen. LG seems to have been thinking how it could improve its users' experience, and the answer to that could be one of the more intriguing features of the G7 ThinQ. LG revealed that the device will carry a display capable of hitting upwards of 1,000 nits of peak brightness in certain scenarios. This is similar to what Samsung's more recent top flagship devices have been capable of - phones like the S9, S9+, Note 8, and others can also reach similar peak brightness in certain super-bright daylight conditions. It was also revealed the display will use 30 less power than the display panels found on the G6 and the V30, and that's great - a big chunk of your battery's juice is used to light up the display.

Cool new color options
With the exception of the V30, LG doesn't have a very impressive track record when it comes to available color options of its smartphones. Even the company's latest G-series flagship device, the G6, was only available in black and silver colors, which is quite limiting in terms of options. Well, it seems that the G7 ThinQ will be different in this regard and arrive in a slew of classy colors which can be seen below.

Slightly 'disappointing' hardware
Okay, we know that calling a Snapdragon 845 + 4GB of RAM combo disappointing is stupid. However, given that even entry-level mid-range phones these days have 4GB of the stuff and many flagships ship with either 6 or even 8GB of RAM, the leaked benchmark suggesting that the device will ship with 4GB RAM felt a bit disheartening. Don't get us wrong, more RAM doesn't automagically makes a device much better in terms of performance compared to a more humbly-endowed counterpart, but for the regular Joes out there, more RAM is definitely a big selling point, just like megapixels used to roll in the not-so-distant past. This could spell some bad news for LG's sales numbers, but let's hope we are not bad prophets. Hopefully, LG would consider releasing a more capable and well-spec'd variation of the device as well.
