The LG G7 is rumored to be launching as soon as May, but as is usually the case with flagship smartphones, details on the G7 are already leaking out.

Photos and spec details of the LG G7 have made their way online today. Shared by TechRadar, the images show a phone with “LG G7 ThinQ” branding on its boot screen.

LG started using the ThinQ brand earlier this year with its LG V30S ThinQ, which utilizes AI to offer features like recognizing what you’re pointing your camera at and then showing keywords on the screen that you can then use you make sure your settings are correct for whatever you’re shooting. Another feature is called QLens and it’s connected to Amazon to help you shop for items that you point your phone’s camera at.

Getting back to this LG G7 ThinQ, today’s leak shows that the phone will have a notch at the top of its display, which looks to be one of the big smartphone trends of 2018. The report also claims that the G7 ThinQ will offer features like a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The phone identifies itself with the model number LM-G710TM.

We’ll have to wait until LG announces this G7 ThinQ before we know it’s availability details, but considering that T-Mo has offered many of LG’s recent Android flagships, it’s likely that the LG G7 ThinQ will make its way to T-Mobile as well.

What do you think of this LG G7 ThinQ so far?

    Some one in my household got the V30 . NOT impressed. The camera isn’t all what they claim .

    • SirStephenH

      I have the V30 and love it. Maybe you’re just not doing something right. The only issue I have is updates, the Oreo update has just been delayed by 2 weeks.

      • Jake Fitzpatrick

        You might be right .it’s a family members phone and I am not familiar enough with LG to help. She just gets really disappointed when she sees the pictures I have on my Note 8 vs her V30 .

        • SirStephenH

          I’m very happy with the results as long as I can keep my hands from trembling. Hopefully the update will fix whatever issues you guys are having.

        • SirStephenH

          There’s quite a bit to the camera app, I’m still trying to figure everything out myself.

          Maybe have her do a factory data reset on her phone after the Oreo update. Just make sure she backs up everything first. It’s usually good practice to do a FDR after a major update anyways.

          Samsung has better cameras than lg. Only one that can compete from what I hear is the pixel 2.

  • Jason Caprio

    I give credit where credit is due, but what is the deal with phones BLATANTLY copying the famous Notch from the iPhone X?

    • kev2684

      They can’t beat Samsung so might as well lol

    • thepanttherlady

      Deleted my last response…I had the Essential phone and swore it had a notch. I don’t smoke but think I must have been while I had it. LOL

      • Sammaad Shams

        Did Essential phone work fine with Tmobile service? I want to try one but not sure if it works with Tmobile bands.

    • SirStephenH

      It’s nothing special. Manufacturers have been toying with the idea for years and Android P will have notch support built in.

    • SirStephenH

      The V10 and V20 actually had a notch well before Apple made it “cool”.

      • Tim S

        No they didn’t! I know what you mean but that is not the same. Not even close.

        LG did a Reddit post a month ago asking for opinions about the notch, and general consensus was that the notch was ugly.

        • SirStephenH

          It’s still a notch whether you believe in it or not.

        • Tim S

          That’s not the argument going on. The Fact is the notch on the G7 is a copy of the one on the iPhone X.

  • SirStephenH

    In other news @askdes has said that the Oreo update for the V30 has been delayed by 2 weeks. There’s a good chance that my next phone won’t be made by LG.

    • HeatFan786

      LG phones depreciate in value so quick. I wonder if people tempted by band 71/600 MHz marketing since it was considered the first TMO device w/ 600 MHz coverage?

      LG is Samsung of yesteryear since their skin/UI feels like old school Touchwiz. If you want updates, go HTC/OnePlus/Pixel 2.

  • steveb944

    I love my V20, the problem is it’s still awesome. But I’ll keep an eye on this one.

  • Nionx

    Notch. This phone is already dead to me. Let us hope they do not make the same mistake with the V30. I’ll never buy another LG flagship if they keep with this madness. I’m quite content with my V20

    • SirStephenH

      Technically the V20 was the original notched phone. The V30 does away with the second screen in exchange for a wider aspect ratio (longer screen) and rounded corners.

      Edit: the V10 was first, the V20 was second.

      • Nionx

        I had meant to say “let’s hope they don’t make the same mistake with the V40”. I had a V30 and didn’t come away impressed. Aside from the camera setup, floating bar and the 32bit DAC, it was pretty much a carbon copy of the S8. I found an app that mimicked the floating bar for my other phones and returned the V30. As far as first phones with a “Notch”, I can’t argue that point. They did however place it above the main screen, along side a secondary screen, so it didn’t intrude on any of the screen viewing area. I’m fine with that. Not this new trend.

    • Tim S

      Love my G6, hate the notch, so ugly, will probably get S9 instead.

  • pda96

    notch = Apple clone = no sale

    • T Redd

      Lol another flop

    • Limeybastard

      Agreed. WTF is wrong with these firms copying Apple.
