LG G7 ThinQ Boasts Super Bright Display, AI Camera, Boombox Speaker
LG today announced the G7 ThinQ, its 2018 flagship phone, at an event in New York. The phone merges features of last year's G6 and V30 to create a more powerful phone that's easier to use. The G7 ThinQ is made from metal and glass and is certified IP68 for protection against water and dust. The FullView display measures 6.1 inches across the diagonal with a slightly taller aspect ratio to account for the additional screen real estate forming the notch. Owners can use software to visually eliminate the notch if they wish. The display packs 3,120 by 1,440 pixels for quad HD+ resolution. The G7 ThinQ uses LG's Super Bright Display LCD technology and claims to have a brightness of 1000 nits, making it one of the brighter displays available on a modern phone. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. LG has improved the camera hardware and software. The phone features two 16-megapixel cameras on the back: a standard-view lens at f/1.6 and a wide-angle lens at f/1.9. The front camera has an 8-megapixel sensor at f/1.9. LG is taking advantage of machine learning and the Snapdragon 845's image signal processor to help the G7 recognize 18 different scenes, such as flowers, pets, the beach, and more. This AI Cam then adjusts to capture the best shot based on the scene. It automatically uses pixel binning to capture more light in the Bright Mode for low-light scenes. The camera can snag artistic portraits using either the front or rear camera. Another stand-out feature is the new Boombox speaker. The bottom-firing speaker uses the sealed interior chamber of the phone to help amplify sound. As a result, LG says the G7 ThinQ is loud enough to fill rooms with music. The G7 also carries forward LG's commitment to the quad DAC for superior wired sound, as well as DTS-X for cinematic surround and 3D stereo sound. The G7 ThinQ includes a dedicated button on the side for calling up the Google Assistant. Moreover, the phone as 2 microphones with noise cancellation and it supports Super Far Field voice recognition. LG claims the G7 has a 35% higher recognition rate for spoken voice commands at 6.6-feet than most other phones. The LG G7 ThinQ goes on sale soon in black, red, blue, or silver. Pricing wasn't immediately disclosed.
