LG G7 ThinQ Goes Official with AI-backed Dual Camera

May 3, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It’s a big month for the smartphone industry as more than a few flagships are expected to come out of the wraps in the coming weeks. LG has now kickstarted the series of launches by making its much anticipated G7 ThinQ official.

There’s no big surprise hidden in the device as previous leaks have already detailed what to expect from the device. To recall, the G7 ThinQ features a 6.1-inch QHD+ LCD display that unsurprisingly packs a notch at the centre. The bezels at the sides have got thinner, but LG has kept the chin broader at its bottom.

Coming to the heart of the device, the G7 ThinQ features the flagship SD 845 from Qualcomm paired with a RAM of 4GB. A Plus version of the flagship will also be made available that will have 6GB of RAM paired with the same specifications.

The highlight of the G7 ThinQ is the refined dual-camera setup that features two 16MP sensors. LG’s camera app is also powered by the ThinQ AI that automatically recognizes the subjects to be shot. With the help of AI, LG will also have the settings automatically adjusted to capture the best image for the user. As with the hardware, the dual-camera features an ultra-wide lens that stretches up to 170 degrees. The regular 16MP sports a 71-degree field of view. On the front side, LG features an 8MP sensor for selfie shoots.

Another step taken ahead by LG is in the audio department. LG G7 ThinQ packs an astoundingly loud speaker, and this comes in addition to audio DAC for boosting the output through headphones. And yes, the device does support analog output via its 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Interestingly, LG has used LCD panel for the display instead of OLED panels, and that’s despite LG offering the ability to mask the notch by blacking out the top part. But LG does guarantees rich quality in display by assuring 1000-nit brightness in its display.

The G7 ThinQ also has a battery of 3000 mAh that comes with wireless charging and fast charging support. LG also has introduced a new dedicated button for calling up Google Assistant, making it the first Android to have a dedicated button for Google’s personal assistant.

Like usual, LG hasn’t revealed the pricing of the device, and that will be made available locally close to the launch dates. The device will arrive first in South Korea, and will be followed by its launch in other key markets including Europe, the US, and Asia.
