LG G7 ThinQ: launching on May 2!

LG’s planning to make a big comeback this year!

 

Another day, another rundown from the rumor mill. Right now it’s abuzz with the upcoming LG G7.

 

Let’s get to it!

 

After posting 11 quarters of losses, LG previously announced that they will only be releasing a flagship phone when needed instead of the usual yearly release. Although, a sneak peak of the new phone was said to be in view at the last Mobile World Congress (even known leaker Evan Blass took notice).

 

Earlier rumors reported that the upcoming flagship is codenamed Judy and will be launched in June. However, the tech-giant finally cleared the air with a launch dates: May 2 at Metropolitan West in Manhattan, New York while May 3 in Seoul, South Korea. And it’s official name: LG G7 ThinQ with  rumored availability around mid-May.

 

What’s in a name?

 

It’s their first flagship to have the ThinQ attributed to it (one of the first was the LG V30 ThinQ launched last MWC) which focuses on enriching phone use with AI.

 

What can we expect from the new device?

 

Hello, notch. Just like the iPhone X (and a lot of other phones since) the flagship will also have a notch on the top part of the display. It’s display is expected to be around 5.7-inches and have an 18:9 aspect ratio. To keep costs down, LG will also be using LCD displays instead of the popular OLED ones on the large-market phones. Rumors indicate it might be powered by the Snapdragon 845 and may have 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage space. With the ThinQ added, it may also have a dedicated AI button on board and an Iris Scanner.

 

And headphone jack lovers: this phone will most likely have one! (no promises though!)

 

It’s also rumored to come in the following colors: Aurora Black, Platinum Grey, Moroccan Blue, Moroccan Blue (Matte) and Raspberry Rose.

How about the price?

 

Given it’s a flagship phone, it’ll have a high end price too. Right now, the price will be at least $729. We understand the rising prices are a lot for a phone but don’t worry: as promised, Tech Armor will always have your back! ;)

 

We’ll keep you posted for screen protectors and other accessories we can give this new device! In the meantime, you can check out the gadgets we’re currently protecting (and how you can protect them) on our Amazon Storefront Page and website.
