LG G7 ThinQ price and release date on Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint


LG reportedly put the breaks on the initial G7 release date with the idea that it has to do something out of the ordinary to appeal to the average Android user, and differentiate itself from the nemesis across town, Samsung. So, what to do? Add a notch, of course! We kid, but going back to the drawing board meant a delay in the flagship's launch, and LG just got around the phone's unveiling, with a release to follow later this month. Well, actually much later in the US, as you can see from the T-Mobile, Verizon or Sprint press releases.

Preorders: May 24 | Release date: June 1

 

LG G7 on T-Mobile

Preorders: May 25 | Release date: "later this spring"

The G7 flaunts a 6" Super Bright LCD screen, Snapdragon 845 chipset, and upgrade 6GB/64GB, or a 6GB/128GB G7+ models. The rear camera comes with a dual 16MP sensor config in a vertical positioning, with all the AI camera shenanigans from the V30S present on the G7 as well, along with the quad audio converter. The only ho-hum part is the battery pack at the 3000mAh mark, like on the Galaxy S9

Preorders: n/a | Release date: June 1



As for the price, a few online stores show that it would cost a bit more than its predecessor, at least in Europe and Korea, to the tune of EUR 850-950, depending on the model. Fret not, though, as prices in the US are usually much lower, and we doubt that LG will tag the G7 much higher than the S9, so the $750 ballpark could be a good starting point.

I don't understand them. FIrst, they told us to release phone only when they feel it is the right time. And then they come up with this: a phone with a notch and chin, LCD display and poor camera performance with a small, 1/3.1" sensor.. for €850-900!

Are you stupid? It's a new type of LCD called MLCD+ with separate white pixels. It even goes up to 1000 nits, and supports Dolby vision and HDR. It even has a fast refresh rate for its 3120x1440 display. Plus it supports always on. As far as the notch is concerned, there is an option in the settings to hide or use the notch. Plus all the software and apps support this smartphone. You cannot say the say for the iPhone X. Plus the iPhone 8 and 8 plus don't support HDR, always on, or Dolby vision. Yet they all cost more. The cameras are both 16 mp on the back, with one being a wide angle. It even use Google's AI to process the images. You always troll every Android smartphone Xperia14. Your words mean jack, because you are a list.

True, I can't judge it as I haven't seen it yet. But LG's LCD screens have never been really good, so I'm a little worried. Take my G6 for example; while its contrast is very good, colors look really dull and it suffers from light bleeding. But then again, I have to take a look at the G7's screen. Sorry, the notch with a chin just isn't my thing. I don't mind a small notchm but not with a chin. For the camera: it's the thing I really don't like on my G6. The camera software is sluggish, it takes a lot of time to take a picture and it's actually quite common that it doesn't save my pictures, even with internal storage selected. Then the image quality: it leaves a lot to be desired as well. Image quality on the G6 (and from what I've seen the V30) is OK at best. Colors are out of proportion, and images look like oil paintings already when light conditions get a little worse. And don't get me started about the low-light performance. But that is to be expected; as they've used some cheap-ass sensor for the G6. And now they've used a small 1/3.1" sensor for the G7 as well, so my expectations are not very high.. I'm not trolling LG/Android articles. I still love my G6, as it really has some big advantages over other phones. But I just wish that they step up their game, with things as a bigger battery and a bigger camera sensor.

Well elaborated post. You seem like one of the few people on this site who aren't pure fanboys, rantboys, shills, and/or trolls. Please stay that way (or improve). Thanks.

A better price for the V35, or you are going to buy the V35, and hope the G7 goes down in price?

well actually I am going to wait for v40 and hope that the price of v35 will go down. If it has a better screen I will buy v35.

This is strange. LG has seemed to have lost their rhythm starting with the whole modules thing with the G5. Why would I buy this @ $800? I can get the S9 already for less than that?

Dude, this is my next phone. I heard amazing things about LG's phones at work. Last time I had an LG was the LG Dare, and that thing had an AWESOME camera in it.
