LG G7 ThinQ has been confirmed as LG’s next premium smartphone


It’s official: The LG G7 ThinQ is coming.

LG has confirmed that its next major smartphone will be named the LG G7 ThinQ. In an announcement on its Korean blog, LG explains that this will be the first G series device to carry the ThinQ brand.

No spec details or images of the LG G7 ThinQ have been shared by LG, but the company does confirm that the phone will include AI features and that it “enhances the ability to interact with other devices”, according to the translated announcement.

The LG G7 ThinQ will be full revealed at events in New York City on May 2 and in Seoul on May 3.

Earlier this year, LG announced the LG V30S ThinQ with AI camera features, like an AI CAM feature that analyzes the subject in your camera’s frame and recommends the optimal shooting mode. Another feature, called QLens, lets you do things like scan QR codes for online shopping and get detailed information on landmarks.

We’ll have to wait and see exactly what AI features LG packs in to the G7 ThinQ, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if AI CAM and QLens make it into the new device. Since LG went to the work to develop these new features, it likely wants to use them as much as possible, including in its brand new flagship Android smartphone.

      They have carried all of the LG flagships in the past. I don’t assume that’s changing.

    Hopefully the AI camera, utilizing IR, will scan subject’s nether regions and alert when they’re particularly receptive to ****-
    we’ll just need a Mate AI App… spawn a new trend / industry: X-Dating on the Blockchain.

    The name stinks. The notch stinks….

    Goodbye LG.

  • Jason

    Notch = No Go. Just say no the notch! LG G7 Notch-Q. Don’t hate the phone, hate the notch!

    • Mike Thaler

      Is the “notch” supposed to add some functionality to a phone?

      • Tim S

        Nope. It’s a compromise between having max screen and smaller body while keeping camera. All that to save 3 millimeters from the top of the phone.

        • Mike Thaler

          That = all of about 1/10 of an inch! You sure about that?
          I still think having non-replaceable batteries was/is just as bad. Apple started that.

        • Tim S

          3-5 millimeters depending on phone. Silly nevertheless.
          Part of the reason for non removable batteries was for waterproofing, a reasonable trade imo.

  • TheRealKingSen

    I’ll be interested in this phone until they announce the price and then it will be a no go

  • dave

    Will the boot loop be with or without the notch on the screen? don’t get me wrong I have love LG products in the past but the way T Mobile makes you feel that they’re doing you a favor even though you have an extended warranty in your on your 4th or 5th one why even bother?

  • Tim S

    Played around on iphone X, notch is hideous. Only way I will by a phone whit notch is if they offer a shutdown screen option on the sides of the notch. Don’t want to see the notch when playing video in landscape.

    I had the G3 and G4 no issues, got the V10 but kept it and got the V20 send it back within the week. My V10 died two weeks past the warranty, but sent it in to LG who fixed it for free, awesome service LG! But, the notch is one reason I just traded in my 6s+ and went back to Samsung with the s9! No notch for me!
