LG’s latest G Series flagship is here, and the LG G7 ThinQ walks a line between following industry trends and continuing to buck them. For the former, the most noticeable is the “notch” at the top of the 6.1-inch display. LG, at least, allows you to hide it with a software setting.
On the back, though, LG continues to eschew a telephoto lens, unlike Samsung, Apple, and others. Instead, it pairs its 16-megapixel main camera with a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens, shooting a full 107-degrees. On the front, there’s an 8-megapixel camera for selfies.
Inside, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 shares chassis-space with a 3,000 mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of ROM (for the US, anyway). Interestingly, LG has taken advantage of the G7 ThinQ’s sealed body to turn the whole thing into a reverberation chamber for the speaker. It’s calling it Boombox, and it joins the Hi-Fi Quad DAC and DTS-X 3D Surround Sound.
