First alleged LG G7 camera sample leaks out

A leaker with a good track record, Roland Quandt, has gotten his hands on what is claimed to be a sample from the camera of LG's upcoming flagship, the G7 ThinQ. The EXIF data is for one LM-G710 handset, which was just certified in Korea, indicating that an announcement must be very near.

The image is with the rumored 16MP resolution of the dual cameras on the back of the G7, and has the following data in the original's EXIF details: F/1.6 - ISO 50 - 4.03 mm - 1/379. 

Long story short, all the pieces of the puzzle collude towards a true G7 ThinQ sample, though we wouldn't read too much into it when it comes to quality, as it's most likely taken with a preproduction sample, and non-final software. 

Still, this purported leaked sample, and the finalized design tip that appeared yesterday, show that we are very near the actual announcement. Now all that is left is to receive the event invitation from LG in our inboxes.

And the rest of the picture looks like crap. The whole thing is overly underexposed, not just the sky.

Still dont know why LG does not purchase a better sensor. Must be 16MP/ 1 micron

Probably buying a cheap sensor to save money when hoping the average consumer still believes higher MP is better.

Depends... Most use 12MP because is easier to hide noise. If you resize a photo from Samsung or Apple to 20 , 23 MP they will look crap.

12MP not for hide noise 12MP for bigger pixel and better low light performance.
