The smartphone will make use of a resonance chamber, which is said to amplify the volume tenfold when compared with a standard smartphone.

LG is all set to unveil its G7 ThinQ smartphone on May 3 and is now revealing some key specs of the smartphone ahead of the launch. The company previously confirmed some specs of the device and has now revealed that it will come with a “Boombox speaker”, which is said to "increases the base sound level by more than 6dB with twice the amount of bass.", which essentially means a louder speaker that LG says can deliver over than ten times the loudness in comparison with a standard smartphone. 

The company also said that the device’s bass is amplified even further when it is placed on a solid surface. The smartphone will also support DTS:X 3D Surround Sound when audio is routed via headphones, tipping that the 3.5mm audio jack may be present on the device. Even while using a standard pair of headphones, users will be able to experience up to 7.1 channel 3D surround sound effects, thanks to the DTS:X technology and the LG G7 ThinQ will also be equipped with a Hi-Fi Quad DAC to improve audio output on headphones, which are capable of utilising it. 

LG says that the upcoming G7 ThinQ makes use of a resonance chamber design, allowing it to boost the volume levels past the normal hardware limits. It will be interesting to see how the smartphone is designed internally to boost audio as an image suggests that the device makes use of the entire body in order to produce louder audio. 

As mentioned above, the company previously confirmed that the LG G7 ThinQ will feature a 6.1-inch QHD+ (3120 x 1440p resolution) display with a maximum brightness of 1000 nits. LG claims that it will have the "brightest and most vibrant display" in the market. The smartphone will certainly have the brightest display made by LG yet, but current flagships like the Galaxy S9 Plus have been found to come with display brightness exceeding 1000 nits (745 Lux in our tests). The G7 ThinQ's display will have the taller 19.5:9 display aspect ratio and covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 colour gamut as well. 

As compared to the LG G6, the G7 ThinQ's display will feature “almost 50 percent slimmer” bottom bezels and it is confirmed to come with a notch on top. The smartphone will be equipped with a curved tempered glass LCD display, which is somewhat surprising as the company used an OLED display on the LG V30, but then again, LG is known for manufacturing good quality LCD panels. 

The LG G7 ThinQ was previously shown in press renders by Evan Blass, showing the display notch, a dedicated Google Assistant button and more. It is seen with a 3.5mm audio jack and will feature rounded corners, and a vertically stacked dual-rear camera with the fingerprint sensor placed immediately below. On the front, the notch houses the earpiece and the front camera. A dedicated physical button for the Google Assistant was also spotted on the left edge of the device. In terms of specifications, the G7 ThinQ smartphone could be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 SoC with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It was spotted on the benchmarking website AnTuTu, where it scored 2,52,473, which is up in the flagship range. 

LG is also rumoured to launch the LG V35 ThinQ alongside the LG G7 ThinQ, which is expected to be the successor to the company’s recently launched V30S+ ThinQ smartphone. According to an earlier report, the LG V35 ThinQ could feature a 6-inch QHD+ OLED display with a taller 18:9 display aspect ratio and an 80-percent screen-to-body ratio, and not come with a notch on the display. It is said to come in Black and Grey colour options at the time of launch, with a “premium glossy finish.”

Both the LG V35 ThinQ and the G7 ThinQ are said to make heavy use of AI in areas like image processing and dynamic scene adjustments while capturing photographs. In terms of audio, the device is said to come with a same 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC setup as its predecessor, but with extra enhancements and digital filters. It may also include far-field mics to capture a user’s voice better from a distance.

In the camera department, the LG V35 ThinQ is said to feature an upgraded dual 16MP rear cameras one of which is said to be a ‘standard’ camera with a glass lens, f/1.6 aperture and 10-bit HDR compatibility, whereas the other one is tipped to be a wide-angle lens with a 107-degree field-of-view. The main cameras will also come with features like quickly switching between the two lenses, “AI Cam,” and Google Lens support at launch. There will also be a Super Bright Mode and “superpixels” for capturing better images in low-light conditions.
