Photos and screengrabs sent to TechRadar have revealed the specifications and AnTuTu scores of the LG G7 ThinQ. The smartphone is expected to launch in May 2018 in the US. According to TechRadar, “Despite coming packed inside of an unremovable plastic case for testing, the notch (perhaps the G7 ThinQ’s most distinguishing and controversial feature) is visible, revealing itself on the phone’s boot screen snuggled up to a notification LED indicator and a selfie camera.”
If the information revealed is to be believed then the smartphone will have an 18:9 display and will house a notch. LG took to reddit to ask users what they thought of the notch. The thread has been deleted and you can read more about that story here. Nonetheless, it looks like the smartphone will house a notch. It also appears that the smartphone will have a dedicated AI button. Whether this AI button will launch the Google Assistant or LG’s own AI is yet to be seen. It also remains to be seen whether this button can be remapped as per the user’s preference.
Coming to the specifications of the smartphone, it is expected to run on the Snapdragon 845 platform coupled with 4GB of RAM and sport 64GB built-in storage. The RAM and storage may seem a little less on paper considering we have smartphones like the OnePlus 6 that is expected to sport 8GB RAM and 256GB built-in storage. Previous reports indicated that the smartphone would have 6GB RAM.
The AnTuTu scores of the LG G7 ThinQ shows the device with a score of 252,473. Whether this number is real or not and how it compares to the competition is something we will comment on when the smartphone launches and we get it in for review. There is little information about the UI on the device, and historically LG has skinned its smartphones with its own UI overlaid on Android.
As far as flagship smartphones are concerned, only Samsung has launched its S9 and S9 Plus in India. HMD has also announced the launch of the Nokia 8 Sirocco in India. OnePlus is expected to launch their OnePlus 6 soon. We got to check out the Asus Zenfone 5 family of devices along with the Xperia XZ2 family of phones at MWC 2018.
LG is not the only smartphone to have embraced the notch. OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will also have a notch and we have seen the Oppo F7 launch with a notch as well. If you want to know about all the new and upcoming smartphones that sport a notch, you can do so here.
