LG today announced the G7 One and G7 Fit, phones that share the basic design of the G7 ThinQ but dial back the specs in order to make them less expensive. Shared features between the two include 6.1-inch quad HD+ LCD displays (3,120 by 1,440 pixels), 3,000mAh batteries with QuickCharge 3.0, LTE 4G, WiFi, NFC, and USB-C connectors. The phones also include IP68 protection from water and dust, mil-spec 810G certification, face recognition, fingerprint sensors, and FM radios. On the audio front, the G7 One and G7 Fit offer LG's 32-bit quad DAC with 3D X surround sound, and LG's boombox stereo speakers.
- G7 One: This variant of the G7 family runs Android One. LG says the Android 8.1 Oreo-based platform ships with only the most essential apps. The G7 One forgoes bloatware in order to keep performance smooth. The phone packs a Snapdragon 835 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The main camera has a 16-megapixel sensor with a standard 71-degree field of view at f/1.6. The selfie camera has an 8-megapixel sensor with a wide(r) 80-degree field of view at f/1.9. It is assisted by LG's AI Cam software. The G7 One includes Bluetooth 5.0 LE and comes in black or blue.
- G7 Fit: The Fit runs the standard version of Android 8.1 Oreo. It is powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and comes with 4 GB of RAM and either 32 or 64 GB of storage. The main camera has a 16-megapixel sensor with a standard 76-degree field of view at f/2.2. The selfie camera has an 8-megapixel sensor with a wide(r) 80-degree field of view at f/1.9. It has LG's AI Cam software aboard as well as Google Lens. The G7 Fit includes Bluetooth 4.2 and comes in black or gray.
LG recently rolled out two new entries in its G7 range. The G7 Fit and G7 One have the same basic appearance as the flagship G7, but aren't quite the same when it comes to the in-hand experience.
LG's update to its flagship phone keeps the design mostly the same while making strides where it really counts: under the hood. This year's phone is slim, powerful, and loud thanks to its metal-and-glass design, Snapdragon 845 processor and AI Camera, and massively loud speaker.
The G7 ThinQ is LG's latest Android flagship phone. It wraps a dual-camera system, top-of-the-line processor, and audiophile components in a metal-and-glass chassis that's sleek, modern, and waterproof.
