LG G7 ThinQ video teaser has Korean girls ready to switch to LG's new flagship (UPDATE)

15


LG has jumpstarted the hearts of many South Korean teenage girls with its new video teaser for the LG G7 ThinQ, which stars Korean boy band BTS. While there are no images of the phone and the boys speak in Korean, we can still make out the name of the device and the date of May 2nd, which is when LG's new flagship will be unveiled at an event in New York City. Earlier today, we passed along a leaked photo that revealed what is alleged to be the phone's display settings menu. LG G7 ThinQ owners will have the option of going un-notched if they desire. Considering that the notched look is called "standard" and the un-notched option titled "custom," we would expect the notch to show up by default.

While we don't speak Korean, we are told that each member of BTS is revealing a feature of the LG G7 ThinQ. If any of our loyal readers speak Korean, please drop your translation in the comments section. Meanwhile, we've never heard of BTS in the U.S., but we can tell you that judging from the response to this video from Korean teens, LG is going to rack up plenty of domestic sales of the G7 ThinQ just because it has this group promoting its new handset.

UPDATE:As one of our loyal readers pointed out, pressing on the CC button while watching the video will give you an English translation. Frankly, you'd be wasting your time. You're better off using your imagination to guess what BTS is saying.

In addition, LG has started to promote the May 2nd unveiling of the LG G7 ThinQ as you can tell from the image on the right. The phone is expected to feature AI CAM, which analyzes a photo's subject, surroundings and the available light to improve the quality of a snapshot. We also expect the device to be equipped witha very bright 6.1-inch screen, and carry the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform under the hood. There also could be a dedicated button for Google Assistant.

The phone's specs, features and availability will be revealed on May 2nd. Circle the date on your calendar.
