LG can’t be happy about this. Its next phone, the G7 ThinQ, has leaked in full yet again. It’s the timing of this particular leak that should make the company incredibly annoyed. The 2018 flagship will be announced tomorrow, but the world can see it today.
Over in South Korea, someone got their hands on a unit at a retail store and took some pictures. Whoever’s behind the camera then posted them online for everyone to see.
While you might not see it so easily, there’s a notch at the top of the suspected 6-inch display. LG is using an edge-to-edge design similar to Apple’s on the iPhone X. Here, though, it’s difficult to see because the company will allow it to be hidden by placing black bars to the left and right sides.
The software should be mostly unchanged, resembling last year’s G6 and V30. Since the company uses a software overlay, the heaviest visual changes from Android 8.0 Oreo could be watered-down. But there probably will be a dedicated button for Google Assistant, which we’ve never seen before.
LG is sticking with its favorable dual-camera setup, but this time it’s aligned vertically. Below it is the fingerprint scanner, and it doesn’t seem to have the power button built-in as that’ll be relocated to a traditional spot on the side of the G7 ThinQ.
So there you have it. With just one day left, now there’s nothing to question about the appearance of LG’s 2018 flagship. The G7 ThinQ will have an edge-to-edge display with a notch, a glass-made back, and a dual-camera setup. If there’s anything for LG to surprise us with, it’s the software on the G7 ThinQ.
