LG G7 with iPhone X like notch and AI capabilities leaked

LG G7 the successor to LG’s flagship G-series of smartphones was leaked recently. It would apparently be called the LG G7 ThinQ. The front of the device sports a display of uncertain diagonal size and resolution. However, what is certain is that it would have a notch like the iPhone X and more recently the Huawei P20 and the Asus Zenfone 5.


LG G7 Specifications

Much of its other specs haven’t been revealed yet. Techradar, citing the source, claims the phone will have a 6.1-inch display and come with the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. A previous leak suggested 6GB RAM, but it may just be another variant. It is also claimed that LG G7 ThinQ managed to score 252,473 points on AnTuTu. Although, the score in absolute terms is excellent, it is at par with what the Galaxy S9 scores (250201 points) but less than that of Sony Xperia XZ2



AI is seemingly the next big thing in the tech world. Smartphone manufacturers are adding dedicated hardware and functionality on their phones for AI. The -ThinQ suffix suggests dedicated AI hardware which, most likely, will primarily be used for imaging and virtual assistant. Much of AI’s potential may be realized once developers start cranking out new apps which leverage the available hardware innovatively for new functionality.


Distinctive Hardware features

The notch, which gave the iPhone X its distinctive front glass appearance makes an appearance on the G7 ThinQ. It manages to keep the front camera, earpiece and a notification LED, possibly along with ambient light and proximity sensors. From the leaks the lock key is on the right and the volume rocker on the left. Apart from this, there is a third slit below the volume rocker that reveals G7 ThinQ will have a dedicated button.  Could it be a button for LG’s own AI assistant like the dedicated Bixby button on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S8?


The phone is expected to arrive by May 2018. However, the announcement by LG may happen by the end of this month.
