LG just took to the airwaves, and elaborated that, first, it does have a G7 in store for us, and, second, it will indeed be called G7 ThinQ, like, uhm, its line of smart washing machines and refrigerators at first, and then the LG V30s last month. Oh, we almost forgot the third and most important part - the phone will be announced in New York on May 2nd, which apparently already be May 3rd in Seoul, as that's when the press release says the public event will be held there.
We will be at the gala to relay to you all the festivities, and can't wait to see what LG has cooked up. So far, it's a lot of Snapdragon 845, notch-y screen-to-body ratio, and a dollop of AI - of the Voice, Empathy and Vision varieties - that are bandied about, but what we are really curious about is the pricing range LG decided to put the phone in. If you have been worried that the phone won't focus enough on artificial intelligence, these calming words of LG Electronics' managing director should soothe your nerves:
source: LG Korea (translated)
- Display 6.1" 1440 x 3120 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Octa-core, 2800 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(20h talk time)

This design though...what's the purpose of having a notch if don't trim the bottom or top bezel.

I think that render is wrong. It looks like the lg v30 with a notch. Anyways im on the v30 and not gonna get lg ever again (customer service bunch of liars) so I actually hope it looks like the render :p

LG is implementing a feature in software. That allows users to use the notch or not. So right out of the box all apps will work with LG's G7 notch. Unlike Apples implementation where they force their developers to support the iPhone X notch, or your app will be rejected.

The front looks like an S9 and an iPhone X had a baby, while the back looks like the Mate 9. It sucks how LG are following the steps of Chinese OEMs by copying instead of innovating.

One thing that LG's notch will actually be better than the iPhone X. LG has added a feature in the OS software, where users are givin a choice to use the notch or not. So apps don't have to change. They can use the notch or not. This to me is a better implementation than Apple forcing it's developers to support the notch, or your app will be rejected. So right there LG's implementation is actually better than Apples iPhone X. Because LG's will already work with all the apps. Unlike Apples notch implementation.

To be honest, I really don't care unless they fixed the camera issues. Front facing camera quality and stabilization of rear cameras. I like LG products as my last two phones have been in the V series. I also want to see if they've grown up. Can they announce a phone with a launch date and pricing information? Can they start advertising it right away. If they announce this G7 Thinq (dumb name btw) and we walk away wondering how much it will cost and when it will be available then LG can go about their notchy little way.lol

As long as the notch can be hidden, I'm totally fine. Rumours said there is some kind of boom speakers, so that could be a good thing. If they drastically improve the front camera and introduce some really wide aperture and AF to the same then it would be awesome. Also hope that the G7 uses bigger sensors for their rear camera's..!

the lg g6 was the most beautiful phone i had ever seen. i still want one... only thing that held me back was their boneheaded decision to use an old soc instead of a snapdragon 835 this design looks horrible compared to the g6
