An image said to be the first camera sample from the LG G7 ThinQ appeared online earlier this month, having been shared by known industry insider Roland Quandt. Four buttons sit along the sides, including volume keys and a power button.
Although they have not been selling well in recent years, LG smartphones have never shown poor quality.
CNET has the scoop, having heard from "people familiar with the smartphone" that the LG G7 ThinQ will sport a dedicated hardware button specifically for Google's digital assistant, following in the footsteps of Samsung and its dedicated Bixby key.
LG's flagships typically have good cameras and with leaks pointing to a dual-lens 16MP camera (with strong low light skills) the LG G7 ThinQ will probably be no exception.
The silver/grey color variant in the render also confirms that the G7 ThinQ will come in a metal unibody design with fingerprint sensor now located at the back of the device below the vertically aligned dual camera module which is now at the center.
The new LG G7 ThinkQ will be part of a simultaneous launch announcement in Seoul, South Korea and NY, on May 2nd. Front of the smartphone has an edge-to-edge display with a notch and a substantially-sized bottom bezel. The fingerprint scanner which is now at the back is placed below the camera unit. The device also features a 3.5mm AudioJack on-board which lets you connect various compatible headphones and other devices.
Now some new renders of the alleged LG G7 ThinQ have appeared again.
The LG G7 ThinQ will run on Android 8.1 Oreo with LG UX skinned on top. Instead, this time around, LG has taken a more conventional route by placing the power button on the side.
On the top of the device, there is the SIM card slot and the microSD card slot. You know what else is on the bottom?
A second version of the device will also be made available that will offer 128GB storage and 6GB RAM.
