LG G7 ThinQ is Launching Soon with a Dedicated Bixby Button
While LG’s latest flagship phone, the LG G7 ThinQ ThinQ, is soon to be officially announced next month, rumors regarding its specs no longer surprise fans, as they have been floating around the internet since MWC 2018. But if you want to know what’s in store for this device, here’s what you can expect from it.
LG G7 ThinQ Release Date
Just recently, LG announced that they will unveil the LG G7 ThinQ phone in New York and Seoul this coming May 2, 2018. Now that its launch date is set in stone, it’s expected that the G7 ThinQ will hit store shelves in Singapore later in May.
According to renders by Android Headlines, the LG G7 ThinQ will feature a premium design like the LG V30. It will come in five colors – raspberry rose, Aurora black, Moroccan blue, Platinum grey, and Moroccan Blue (matte). The rumoured render also included two dual-lens cameras on its back along with its fingerprint sensors just below the camera. Moreover, this upcoming LG phone might come with a dedicated Bixby button situated on the left side from the power button. Although Samsung did it first on the Samsung S8, having the Bixby button on the LG G7 ThinQ is definitely an interesting move since it would be the first device in the series to have such a feature.
Since 2017, large displays have been one of the biggest trends in flagship phones as seen with Samsung, Apple, Oneplus, etc with most devices sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio. While Sony has yet to confirm the exact size, many speculate that the the LG G7 ThinQ will have a 6.1-inch display. Besides that, the device will feature an 18:9 aspect ratio and a Quad HD+ resolution.

Furthermore, it will also feature a wide-lens with an f/1.6 aperture. Much like the LG G6, the LG G7 ThinQ camera will have an optical image stabilization, ISO, phase detection autofocus, manual mode, exposure, and white balance.
