LG has officially confirmed that its next-generation flagship, the G7 ThinQ, will launch in early May. The company said it will hold an event in New York on May 2 to mark the debut of the flagship smartphone. The May 2 launch will be followed by another press event, and that will happen in South Korea on May 3. LG G7 ThinQ will succeed the G6, which was unveiled at the MWC 2017.
As speculated, LG G7 ThinQ will be the first G-series smartphone to adopt the ThinQ brand name. LG didn’t say much about the phone’s specifications in its official statement, but it did confirm that the flagship device will come with a range of artificial intelligence features. This is the second smartphone from LG to come with the ThinQ branding. LG V30s ThinQ, released earlier this year, was an update to the original V30 with better memory and AI features.
With the LG G7 ThinQ set to arrive in “Aurora Black,” “Platinum Grey,” “Moroccan Blue,” “Moroccan Blue (Matte),” and “Raspberry Rose.” The Aurora Black will be the ‘default’ color option, with the others launching as alternatives for those seeking a more customized look. As is usually the case with color variation, the availability of these models will vary by region and carrier.
LG had reportedly planned to release the G7 ThinQ at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year. However, the company decided to push the release date of the G7 ThinQ. LG G7 will compete with the likes of Apple iPhone X, SamsungGalaxy S9+, Huawei P20 Pro, and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.
