LG G7 ThinQ appears in leaked photos, notch and all
Pictures of LG's 2018 flagship have leaked, and the boot screen reveals that it will indeed be named the LG G7 ThinQ. The pictures show a notch located on the top of the display, and the phone's model number is LG-G710TM. Said to be undergoing early testing in the states, the handset is expected to be released sometime next month. The inclusion of the ThinQ branding on the phone's boot screen means that the device will have some AI capabilities that are similar to what is available on the LG V30S

The latest rumored specs call for the LG G7 ThinQ to be equipped with a 6.1-inch LCD display carrying an 18:9 aspect ratio, and minimal side bezels. Talk is that LG is not using an OLED panel in order to keep the price of the phone down. Under the hood will be the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, and the phone is said to carry 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. Specs previously rumored include a rear-facing dual camera setup featuring two vertically mounted 16MP sensors, and a 3000mAh battery.

The pictures of the device also reveal a stand-alone button on the left side of the unit. This could very well be a dedicated button that activates some of the AI capabilities that the device is sure to ship with. The AI features should include AI CAM, which analyzes the subject of your picture to set the appropriate shooting mode, and QLens. The latter recognizes certain landmarks, places of interest, foods, celebrities and more.

One of the leaked photos can be found at the top of this story, with the second image found directly below.

Sound like finally LG are adding an LED Notification light, that's the killer feature for me. Shame LCD screen though.

Its a new type of LCD screen. It's called MLCD, and it's suppose to be 800 nits. It even has a new white pixel now (RGBW). It's also support to have higher contrast, and 30% more efficient. So we will see how this new screen fairs. Nothing can have a higher contrast ratio.

I would still prefer OLED. Nothing has a higher contrast ratio than OLED.

This is an old technology introduced by Sony in 2011. It was called whitemagic and the Xperia P was the first to have this technology. It produced 935 nits at that time.

Did they remove it at some point? I had the first Optimus G, and it had it.

It’s not going to sell well. Sadly, I will not buy another LG phone. The ugly notch and small battery are very disappointing.

Just like me, I cannot, and will never buy a phone with a notch. The way manufacturers are adopting this notch looks like occultism to me. Apple X is suffering from lack of sales due to notch, but others are jumping in with full force. I hope something will come out from the notch and bit somebody's ear. The only way to free yourself from this technological occultism is never buying a notched device.

"Apple X is suffering from lack of sales due to notch" Nothing to do with the notch, price is the main reason. It's just too expensive for most, but i'm sure Apple knew that, just like they have iPad Pro with all the goodies which sell less than other iPads.

Bull on the notch. Many that have the iPhone X have said they would have like to have a faster and easier way to login to the iPhone X. Since Apple is forcing their iPhone X users to fully embrace FaceID and offer nothing else like their TouchID. Also Apple is forcing it's developers to support the notch, or your app will be rejected.

Sadly I agree. The notch, back to LCD, the small battery (if these specs are accurate). The LCD is not even that big of an issue for me, but the notch and smaller battery are. I will have to look elsewhere.

Same for me, I find the notification LED much better than the Always-On Display when used with LightFlow app, since you can see it from across the room and it consumes way less power. If the battery life will be good, I think this will be my first LG since the great G2. I just hope it will have a very flat screen like the G6 so I can use an edge to edge tempered glass screen protector , that would really seal the deal for me. Maybe they will also put back in the IR blaster, there were countless times when I needed it... The only thing I don't like about the G7 is that it will be quite big. Hopefully to make room for a 4000 mAh battery, I really don't think the 3000 figure is accurate when the smaller G6 had a 3300 battery.

3000mAh for LG G7 ThinQ is no official battery.

The G6 with a bigger battery had horrible battery life too. Lol

V30 has great battery life , even better than S9+ G7 uses MLCD screen that is %35 power efficiency so no need to worry about battery life. also you cant say notch is ugly without using the device.

While using the iPhone X I got used to the notch. It really didn't bother me at all. Am I all in for the notch? Not really but it's not a deal breaker either... I'll be curious to see if people complain about the screen when these manufacturers put little cutouts in the screen for the sensors and cameras, then we might be hearing people say why didn't they just use a notch instead of making holes in the screen?

Huawei p20 is the better notched phone.
