6 Best Features of the LG G7 ThinQ
LG recently unveiled their newest flagship smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ. It boasts a large display with a notch design, powerful chipset, and AI features. If you’re thinking of upgrading your smartphone this year and you have the G7 ThinQ on your list, here 6 reasons why you should get it.
Premium build with IP68 certification
Flagship devices are expected to have premium builds and the LG G7 ThinQ certainly delivers. It has a polished metal rim for a polished look and comes with Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back for added durability. In addition, it has IP68 certification for dust and water resistance and was designed to meet the requirements of MIL-STD 810G tests designed by the United States military to evaluate the performance of equipment in harsh environments. If you’re color options, it comes in New Platinum Gray, New Aurora Black, New Moroccan Blue, and Raspberry Rose, to suit your tastes.
6.1-inch notched display
The G7 ThinQ sports a large 6.1-inch screen with QHD+ (3120 x 1440) resolution or equal to 564ppi. It also has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio which LG calls FullVision and a bottom bezel which is almost 50 percent slimmer than on the LG G6. It is also equipped with LG’s new LCD technology called Super Bright Display which can produce a brightness of up to 1,000 nits, and capable of displaying 100% DCI-P3 color gamut. It can also adjust the display depending on the type of content. In Auto mode, the phone automatically analyzes the content of games or photos and optimizes the display and power consumption.
As you can see, the G7 ThinQ uses a notch design which is not entirely new, but LG’s new flagship uses the design as its “New Second Screen” which allows the display to be fully expanded for a bezel-less look or set to a more traditional style where the notification bar is completely blacked out. Users can even change the notification bar to another color for a more personal effect.
Dual rear cameras with AI features
LG equipped the G7 ThinQ with a dual 16MP cameras at the rear with a standard and Super Wide Angle configuration. Selfies, on the other hand, are handled an 8MP wide angle. What sets these cameras apart from the competition is its AI CAM with 19 shooting modes. It also has a Super Bright Camera that uses a combination of pixel binning and software processing with AI algorithms, to produce images with up to four times brighter typical of photos shot in dim light. Other features include Live Photo mode, Stickers with face recognition, and Portrait mode for shots with out-of-focus backgrounds.
Powerful audio features
The G7 ThinQ also boasts powerful audio features and sports a Boombox Speaker that utilizes the internal space of the phone as a resonance chamber to deliver double the bass of conventional smartphones for that “boombox” sound. When placed on a solid surface or box, the smartphone utilizes its resonance chamber as a woofer to amplify the bass effect even more. In addition, it has DTS:X to deliver virtual 3D sound for all content and is equipped with Hi-Fi Quad DAC.
Snapdragon 845, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage
A flagship device needs a flagship chipset so it’s good to know that the G7 ThinQ uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform. The base model already has 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB UFS 2.1 storage, but if that is not enough, users can opt for the G7+ model with 6GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage.
Google Assistant and Google Lens
LG is giving Google Assistant a big role in the G7 ThinQ. In addition, it is also one of the first devices to get upcoming Google Lens features which is a new way to search using the latest in AI and computer vision. The G7 ThinQ has a dedicated button that launches Google Assistant and Google Lens. To recognize your voice, LG equipped the G7 ThinQ with Super Far-Field Voice Recognition (SFFVR) and a highly sensitive microphone. This allows Google Assistant to recognize voice commands from up to five meters away. SFFVR can separate commands from background noise, which makes the G7 ThinQ an alternative to a home AI speaker.
