LG has introduced its copy of the Iphone X

LG has introduced its copy of the Iphone X

It will be made available in New Platinum Gray, New Aurora Black, New Moroccan Blue, and Raspberry Rose color.

Design wise, the LG G7 is still assembled with glass and metal. It also gets a new "Boombox System" which will make the G7 ThinQ louder than all its contemporary competitors. This is the second smartphone from the company that has launched with the "ThinQ" branding (LG V30S ThinQ is the first). It has 6.1 inch HD display along with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

When G7 ThinQ will be in stores and how much it will cost is not yet known, LG haven't shared this information. Specifications are top notch to say the least though the other big USP with the two phones is their built-in AI capabilities and has a dedicated physical button for the same as well. It is water and dust resistant with IP68 certification.

Some sources are also reporting on a version of the LG G7 called the G7+.

Stone pelting on school bus with 50 students in Kashmir
The bus of Rainbow International School was carrying around 50 students when it suddenly came under attack by the stone-pelters. Expressing anger over the incident, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti took to Twitter and condemned the attack.

The display on the G7 ThinQ can be set to different modes, depending on the content on the screen.

It is a 6.1-inch bezel-less device with the 19.5:9 ratio (which means it is longer but not wider) and a dual camera set-up, with artificial intelligence (AI). The smartphone also comes with a new Super Bright Camera which takes the low light photography to a whole new level.

The new LG G7 ThinQ. The standard 16MP camera features an f/1.6 aperture lens, while the secondary 16MP camera features an f/1.9 aperture Super Wide Angle lens.

LG is also relying on Google to add some smarts to the G7 ThinQ. Located just below the volume is a button that launches the phone's AI functions. Users can also hold down the button to start talking to the Google Assistant.

At the same time, OPEC-led production cuts have continued to tighten global markets, despite record-setting U.S. crude output. Brent prices have gained almost 6 percent this month, buoyed by expectations the United States will renew sanctions.

One interesting feature is the inclusion of a quick-access button to Google Assistant on the G7 ThinQ. In addition, the phones also feature Super Far Field Voice Recognition technology capable of capturing voice commands for Google Assistant from up to 5 metres away. Likewise, the G7 offers DTS:X support for virtual 3D sound with up to 7.1 channel audio using earphones. It also features 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC and Boombox Speaker.

The battery is smaller than its predecessor with a 3,000mAh capacity and it charges via USB-C.

LG is yet to announce the price of the G7 ThinQ, and it may reveal it at the time of availability of the phone. No other launch or pricing details have been given by T-Mo, but Sprint and U.S. Cellular have said that they're launching the G7 ThinQ on June 1 and Verizon is opening pre-orders on May 24, so it's possible that T-Mobile's launch will happen around that same time.
