The LG G7 ThinQ has a disappearing notch
MANILA, Philippines – Hate it or love it, the highly-controversial notch of the iPhone X has found its way in more than a handful of Android phones including LG’s latest flagship, the G7 ThinQ.
The notch is currently the best compromise in the battle against smaller and thinner bezels but, LG claims that its notch has nothing to do with Apple’s iPhone X.
“We planned the notch design before Apple," LG mobile division chief Hwang Jeong-hwan said at a G7 ThinkQ event, according to a report by The Korea Herald.
The company is setting itself apart from its competitors and hoping to lure those who hate the notch design by incorporating an option to make the notch disappear in the G7 ThinQ. The recently launched phone lets you toggle a software setting to make screen bezels appear and seamlessly blend with the highly-controversial notch situated at the top of the 6.1-inch display. Instead of calling it a notch which implies that something is missing, LG calls it a “second display”.
Internally, the G7 ThinQ is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and 3,000mAh battery. The dual 16MP rear camera setup and an 8MP front-facing camera comes coupled with an AI. Additionally, it has a new AI button for Google Assistant, a rear fingerprint sensor, a headphone jack, “Boombox” speakers, and IP68 water resistance.
Despite already being officially announced, TechRadar reports that the LG G7 ThinQ is expected to be released in Korea mid-May and June for other countries worldwide. Prices are still to be announced. – Rappler.com
