LG Electronics has announced its latest smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ.
“The LG G7 ThinQ is strongly focused on the fundamentals and its launch marks a new chapter for our company,” said Hwang Jeong-hwan, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
“Through the combination of personalised and useful AI functionalities with meaningful smartphone features, this is LG’s most convenient smartphone yet.”
Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, the LG G7 ThinQ offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage to run the latest demanding tasks and apps with ease. Equipped with a 6.1-inch bright display, LG claim the LG G7 ThinQ is comfortable in the palm of your hand and that one hand operation is simple and efficient.
Sporting a new design aesthetic for the G-Series, the polished metal rim gives the LG G7 Thinq a sleeker, more polished look, complemented by Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back. The phone is also rated IP68 for dust and water resistance, making it great for outdoor use.
Versus last year's G6, the LG G7 ThinQ has been upgraded with an 8MP camera up front and 16MP lenses on the back in both standard and Super Wide-Angle configurations for higher resolution photos with more details. LG’s say their signature wide-angle camera now captures even more beautiful landscapes with less edge distortion.
