LG G7 ThinQ renders

LG‘s upcoming flagship from the G series, called G7 ThinQ, will be high on design and AI-based camera qualities. The LG G7 ThinQ has been doing the rounds of the internet for quite some time and now adding to those, its renders have surfaced which confirm its features and possible color choices.

Android Headlines claims these are the official renders and if we go by these, there will be five color choices available for the LG G7 ThinQ. However, as is the case with special color models, the availability of these colors will vary depending on the market. As the report says, the LG G7 ThinQ will be available in Aurora Black, Platinum Grey, Moroccan Blue, Moroccan Blue Matte and Raspberry Rose. The Aurora Black will be the default color choice, which means it will be available as a standard irrespective of the region it is sold in.

Even as the image does appear to be an official render, and the publication attributes it to a reliable source, it is still not confirmed by LG and hence, it is advisable to take it with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, there are a number of features speculated to arrive on the LG G7 ThinQ which appear confirmed through these renders.

Based on the renders, the LG G7 ThinQ will certainly feature the notch on the front. The notch, popularized by the iPhone X, allows for an enhanced edge-to-edge display experience as the top bezel is reduced into a small cutout for crunching the sensors. What also appears confirmed is the presence of a dual-camera setup at the back along with a dedicated fingerprint sensor. The dual-camera setup is placed vertically. The physical buttons for volume and power appear on the sides, while a fourth button is also seen which appears to be the AI assistant trigger.

There has been a lot of debate on what exactly LG will name its next-in-line flagship smartphone. The renders reveal only the LG branding at the back of the phone, indicating that the company might ditch inscribing the ‘G7 ThinQ’ branding at the back.

Going by past reports, the LG G7 ThinQ is likely to pack the notch-based 6.01-inch Quad HD+ OLED display with rumors hinting at a cheaper variant with LCD display. It is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with up to 6GB of RAM. As for photography, the LG G7 ThinQ is expected to pack a pair of 16-megapixel cameras at the back. Up front, it is likely to house an 8-megapixel sensor. Keeping things ticking will be a 3,300mAh battery with support for wireless charging and high-fidelity DAC.
