The successor to LG’s not so popular LG G6, the LG G7 ThinQ will launch on the 2nd of May. LG famously skipped its regular Mobile World Congress launch for the LG G7 as the company tries to revive its dwindling smartphone business. The LG G7 ThinQ will be the beginning of LG’s revamping process of its flagship smartphones. So far, it looks like the G7 ThinQ will be quite an offering from LG with its new design.
It won’t surprise you to know this leak came from dedicated leak-source @Evleaks, which shows the phone in a press shot environment and ‘confirms’ some of the key parts of the phone.

The render shows a phone with a rolling metal rim, a pronounced power button and a notch at the top of the screen – in short, it looks pretty strongly like an iPhone X, thanks to the curved design on the outside.
One significant design change that the render reveals is the placement of the power button. LG flagship devices like the G6, V30 have had the power button housed in the fingerprint sensor on the back. However, the power button on the LG G7 ThinQ will have a more conventional placement on the left-hand side of the device.
Anyway, the new render shows that we’re getting closer to that May 2 G7 ThinQ launch date (although time does work in that way, so you probably could have worked out that May 2 was getting nearer).
