Notch-bearing LG G7 ThinQ appears alongside official colors

Notch-bearing LG G7 ThinQ appears alongside official colors
A new render has revealed the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ's design in full detail. The South Korean giant has previously revealed its plans to launch a new flagship device within the next few months, although the company has remained pretty quiet in terms of specific details. Due to a newly-leaked render obtained by AndroidHeadlines, though, LG’s next flagship has been revealed in full alongside its official colors.

As can be seen in the image above, LG will once again be sticking to the tall display format that it debuted on last year’s LG G6, while the overall looks of the device bear a striking resemblance to the LG V30, at least in terms of the rear. As with the company’s previous flagship, a glass build is once again present, with the posterior panel boasting a circular fingerprint scanner just above the center. In addition, and aligned with the fingerprint sensor, LG has once again included its trademark dual-camera setup which includes a regular lens alongside a wide-angle sensor. Also, coupled with this is a laser autofocus system and a dual-tone LED flash. In regards to the front panel of the device, it is dominated by a large, notch-bearing display, with a slightly thicker bottom bezel.

Moving onto the frame of the device, four buttons can be seen. The first, which is located on the right side of the smartphone, is a dedicated power button, while two separate up and down volume buttons are present on the left side of the frame. Interestingly, however, and confirming previous rumors, a fourth button can be spotted below the volume ones, which is set to activate a dedicated AI assistant when pressed.

Aside from the design of the device, the image in question also shows off the LG G7 ThinQ’s wide range of colors. Acting as the standard color will be the new “Aurora Black,” although it’s worth noting that “Platinum Grey” will also be available as an alternative. Furthermore, the previously-seen “Raspberry Rose” color is set to make a comeback and there will be two variants of a new “Moroccan Blue” option, which will be available in both matte and glossy finishes. Nevertheless, the availability of colors is expected to vary by region and carrier.

I heard it has a resolution of 3120x1440. So if that is true. Then LG could easily accommodate the notch through the OS. In other words since there is extra pixels length wise. Then they could give users an option of different resolutions. Like 2880x1440, 2960x1440, or the highest of 3120x1440. So the first two screen resolutions would not use the notch pixels. Where as the highest resolution would use the highest resolution. If LG can pull this off in software. Then it would be a go in my books. I always say the more options, the better.

So they just added a notch on top of the V30 and still wanted to keep the same bezels...

you're complaining about bezels that small?

Idk, it doesn't seem "that small" to me. Don't the V30 and S9 have same size bezels ?

81% vs 84%, it might seem like a small difference but its quite noticable

What’s the point of the notch if there’s a bezel still? Lol

What he's trying to say is there is no point for a notch if you will still have bezels!

Yup. I hope LG will make the notch invisible, hidden under symmetric thin top bezel. And this is just an iRender to excuse the Apple's fugly implementation. But even if LG don't do it right, Samsung will show all them, the right way how the notch should be implemented, to be little useful feature, instead of disgusting obstruction

Now i want notches on both top & bottom side with symmetrical size and zero bezel around all 4 corner.This will not spoil my experience while watching video & playing a game with a 6 inch screen size phone.I want it to be like ZTE concept phone.Hope that become a trend in all company phones who r opting it rather than boring one top notch iphone x.Lg g7 will be a fail definitely if not with 2 notch included.same goes for rest of notch phones.

If the front facing camera is improved then this will be a good buy.

This looks like a Chinese ripoff.

It looks like the top bezel without the notch is already large enough to accomodate cameras and etc. Why did they need notch at all?

Agreed, was thinking the same thing.

I think if you just get that iPhone you always wanted, but were too proud to admit it, you would be less bitter and hostile.

I admit that I like iPhones, but I will probably never buy one. I could have bought an iPhone SE 32GB from Cricket for $159.99, and I did have enough money, but I just couldn't justify spending all of that money when I could get an LG Fortune for a quarter of that price. The LG does everything I need it to do, and I'm not overly in need of the iPhone's super-smooth operation. I got what I needed at a quarter of the price of the iPhone I liked. Is Android just the "poor man's iPhone"? No, I don't think so, but I think it must burn you up one side and down the other that I can get an Android phone for a quarter of the price of the iPhone I liked... perhaps Apple will stop fooling around and sue the snot out of Google so that every Android phone can cost just as much as an iPhone... I'm not as poor as I used to be, and I do own an iPod nano 16GB, but I see no need at this time, or in the next couple of years, to buy an iPhone. Maybe in a few more years I will have the disposable income for that.

Thanks for the reply. Very different from the usual hostile reply. If you are the type to hold onto a phone for a few years, I think iPhone suits that well. That might negate the entry price somewhat.

Only if the iPhone lasts four times as long... this LG Fortune should last me a full two years, but to make the iPhone worth it, it would have to last eight years... I don't think I will want to use the same iPhone for eight years.

That iPhone x is like the uglier version of this LG G7. The X has big black borders all around it. It doesn't even look borderless.

Further proof that 'some' iPhone users are shallow minded and in dire need of social acceptance.

So, the iPhone is your poor man's Essential phone? Lol

Ask anyone on the street what an essential phone is.
