LG G7 ThinQ leaks again, and the notch is here to stay

The countdown is on for the LG G7 ThinQ, and there’s already so much we know about the high-end phone. LG hasn’t been able to keep its next flagship behind the curtain. Over the last few months, we’ve seen pictures of G7 ThinQ’s design and reports laying out all the specifications. By the time it’s announced by the company, little will come as a surprise.

Leaks aren’t slowing down, either. Mobile industry insider Evan Blass took to Twitter this week to reveal a press render of the G7 ThinQ. While there’s nothing particularly new to point out, it’s yet another look at the direction LG is taking the G series in.

You might have to look closely, but the G7 ThinQ’s notch at the top of the display is present. LG intends on having an edge-to-edge display that’s built similar to the iPhone X’s. Like Apple, the company will store the front-facing camera and any additional sensors within the notch.

Based on the angle, it appears the phone will have a metal frame and a glass back similar to last year’s G6. Overall, LG doesn’t seem interested in resetting its design language.

The date listed on the unit in this promotional image is March 20, which could indicate when LG originally planned to announce or release the G7 ThinQ. Of course, we’re well beyond that date now.

If you’ve been waiting for LG’s 2018 flagship, it’s almost here. The South Korean company recently confirmed it will launch the G7 ThinQ on May 2. LG was expected to make an announcement earlier this year, but multiple reports suggest the company couldn’t decide whether or not to scrap the product and start over. Either way, we’re just a few weeks away from the G7 ThinQ becoming official.
