LG Details G7 ThinQ Smartphone with HDR and DTS:X Support

Following an event this morning, LG has officially debuted the LG G7 ThinQ, it's latest flagship smartphone...

T-Mobile has said that it'll launch the LG G7 ThinQ "later this spring".

Rounding out the specs, the LG G7 ThinQ has a 6.1-inch display. In line with the leaks, the new smartphone is called the LG G7 ThinQ. LG said there is AI at work here which will let the camera take the best possible shot depending on the object and its surroundings that the camera is focussed on.

The G7's display is bigger than that of the G6. LG will allow you to "turn off" the notch in software, but that just means filling the screen on either side with black instead of whatever UI is on the screen. It is also IP68 rated for dust and water resistance. It is worth noting that you can not customise this dedicated Google Assistant button yet.

Perhaps not the most exciting release of the year but LG fans should be pleased with the improvements to the processing package and while LG did borrow the notch from Apple it has kept the headphone jack. This results in 2X Bass as compared to the normal smartphone speakers. The device also has a Hi-Fi Quad DAC that can deliver rich sound through high-impedance earphones. Headphone listeners can use the ThinQ's Dolby DTS:X virtual 7.1-channel capabilities.

Design wise, the LG G7 is still assembled with glass and metal. The phone has notch at the top of the display. The brightness of the phone can auto-adjust up to 1,000 nits.

The app collected data on tens of millions of people and their Facebook friends, even those who did not download the app themselves.

When LG announced that the G6 would sport a 18:9 aspect ratio we were puzzled but soon after that announcement the aspect ratio became nearly normal.

The flagship is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, paired with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of onboard storage respectively.

Both phones feature a 3,000mAh battery pack, and both offer wireless charging. The smartphone incorporates a layer of Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back, which enhances the durability of the device. Then there is the 8 MP front facing camera as well with a wide angle lens and f/1.9 aperture. Below those cameras is a fingerprint reader, and around front is an 8MP wide angle f/1.9 camera. The tech provides 19 shooting modes for intelligently optimized photos and 3 effect options if the automatic one doesn't fit. To improve the low-light photography, the G7 ThinQ's camera has Super Bright Camera mode that results in images 4X brighter than the normal low light photos.

The report also states the "official" specifications of the LG G7 ThinQ, saying the Android 8.0 Oreo based smartphone sports a 6.1-inch QHD+ (1440×3120 pixels) FullVision Super Bright Display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. A single press will launch Assistant, while a double press will launch Google Lens.

LG didn't give out a release date or price for the LG G7 ThinQ.
