The render of the upcoming — and officially confirmed — LG G7 ThinQ Android flagship reveals a thick metal frame similar to that of the LG G6, a display with curved corners, as well as a rather wide notch at the top. All the details should be official in less than a month since the launch event will take place on May 2.

After quite a few rumors and leaks, a render that finally looks like a leaked official photo/render of the LG G7 ThinQ surfaces online. The image was revealed by the well-known leakster and The Verge editor, Evan Blass, in a Twitter message that he posted yesterday.

Sadly, the image does not come with any technical details. However, there are a few essential details that can be noticed. Although not obvious at first sight, the notch can be clearly seen after pushing up the brightness of the image a bit. The front camera seems to use a single sensor, but the notch is pretty wide when compared to the recently released Huawei P20 Pro, as it takes about one-third of the screen's width. The phone also has a thick metal frame similar to that of the LG G6 and a display with curved corners that is surrounded by minuscule bezels on the sides and above, with a noticeably thicker bezel at the bottom.

The older LG G7 ThinQ-related rumors and leaks mentioned an MLCD+ display that uses 35 percent less power than the currently available LCD technology, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, facial recognition, a rear camera with f/1.5 aperture, as well as a hardware AI button.

The LG G7 ThinQ will be unveiled on May 2, most likely next to the LG G7+ ThinQ. The South Korean market should get it by the end of May, while other areas will probably receive the new flagship starting in June.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
