LG has announced that its next-generation flagship G7 will carry the ThinQ branding and will officially take a bow on May 2. Rumor has it that LG scrapped the design that made a sneak appearance at MWC in 2018 with a notched display, but this now seems probable that this is indicative of the final design.

​LG has confirmed that its next flagship smartphone will indeed be called the LG G7 ThinQ. It has taken to its social blog channel to convey the news including that it will officially launch in just three weeks time on May 2 at the Metropolitan West in Manhattan. It will be the first G-series phone to carry the ThinQ branding, which is news, because it was though that the company may have abandoned the G-series naming scheme as part of its much publicized mobile division revamp.

Although it was said to have scrapped the initial design for the G7 and started all but from scratch, the device the mysteriously surfaced behind closed doors at MWC carrying the G7 name is now thought to be representative of the final design. If that is indeed the case, we will be looking at yet another Android design in 2018 with a notched display at the top and “chin” at the bottom.

As a ThinQ branded smartphone, you can expect that LG will be hyping its AI feature set. Like its first smartphone to carry the ThinQ branding, the LG V30 ThinQ, its AI features will largely revolve around its photographic capabilities. That said, the Snapdragon 845 at its heart is also capable of using AI processing to enhance voice, VR and gaming experiences, so LG could leverage these capabilities too. All will be revealed soon enough now that we have a concrete launch date.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
