LG G7 ThinQ is the name of LG's next flagship phone?
It was back in February when reliable tipster Evan Blass passed along a promo for the refreshed version of the LG V30. The image alerted us to the name of the phone, the LG V30S ThinQ. You might call it Deja Vu as tonight Mr. Blass disseminated a tweet revealing that the LG G7 will be named the LG G7 ThinQ. Not to be confused with LG's SmartThinQ smart speaker, the ThinQ name on the handset means that the device supports LG's AI initiative.

For example, the AI feature on the LG V30S ThinQ allows the phone's cameras to use algorithms to brighten images by a factor of two. This improves photographs snapped under low-light conditions. AI CAM also analyzes the subject of your photographs, recommending the optimal shooting mode among eight different categories: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. Each mode enhances the picture being snapped by taking into account the viewing angle, color, reflections, lighting, and saturation level. QLens allows users to scan QR codes and recognizes certain items, telling you where to find it at the best price. The feature can also name certain landmarks, places of interest, foods, celebrities and more. We should see the LG G7 ThinQ unleashed with similar capabilities.

Just yesterday we showed you some renders of the LG G7 ThinQ, notch and all. We expect the device to carry a FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The Snapdragon 845 mobile platform will be under the hood, and we should see the handset come with 6GB of RAM. The latest rumor has LG's 2018 flagship offering a pair of 16MP cameras mounted vertically, and we just might find a 3000mAh battery powering the phone.

The latest word is that the LG G7 ThinQ will be released next month with a price in the $850-$950 range.
