LG may not be as big as Samsung and Apple, but the general thinking is that if the South Korean tech giant unveils a new flagship device, that smartphone will surely be pushed by the four biggest mobile service providers in the United States (namely Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint).
After months of teasing and speculation, LG had made good on its promise and has officially announced its latest flagship -- the G7 ThinQ. As confirmed nearly a week ago, the phablet features a super bright 6.1 inch LCD (liquid crystal display) screen that almost half an inch bigger than last year’s G6.
We all know that LG will be officially unveiling its newest flagship device, the G7 ThinQ, this coming Wednesday, but the South Korean tech giant still managed to release a teaser about its upcoming smartphone. Indeed, it turns out that the G7 ThinQ will sport new boombox speakers that are capable of boosting sound levels by over 6 decibels, and at the same time, produce two fold the bass levels. LG also took the opportunity to add that the device’s speakers are ten times louder than the average smartphone, which means that users can sway to their jam without needing external speakers.
Less than a week before LG is scheduled to formally announce its latest flagship device -- the G7 ThinQ, the South Korean tech giant continues to add to the excitement by confirming that the upcoming high end smartphone will be fitted with an imposing 6.1 inch QHD+ FullVision screen, delivering a resolution of 3,120 by 1,440 pixels.
There have been a lot of rumors brewing in the last few days with regards to upcoming iPhone models, so we better get to it. There is talk that the iPhone SE 2 will be fitted with a glass rear cover, which should allow the device’s battery to be wireless charged using a charging pad. Known leaker Ben Geskin has actually posted a render via his Twitter account. Geskin has also stated that the iPhone SE 2, which is hiding behind the code name Jaguar, is now currently in mass production, and it is quite possible that fans of the small iPhone will not have long to wait before the new model gets released.
We already basically know that LG’s newest flagship offering -- the G7 ThinQ -- will be formally unveiled on May 2nd. Considering that this date is still three weeks away, we will not know for sure until then what the G7 will bring to the table. But thanks to an exclusive report from Android Headlines, we should have a slight idea of what to expect.
It turns out that the rumors of a May unveiling for LG’s upcoming flagship device, the G7, are true. The South Korean tech giant has recently confirmed that the handset, which is officially called the LG G7 ThinQ, will be formally announced on May 2nd by way of two separate events happening in New York City and in the city of Seoul (on May 3rd, technically speaking).
Samsung’s newest flagship offerings -- the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus -- come with some really cool features, such as Intelligent Scan (which combines facial recognition technology with iris scanning software) and AR Emoji (which allows users to transform their selfies into their own AR enhanced emoji). But some may argue that as cool as these features are, they do not quite reach the levels of the iPhone X’s Face ID tech and Animoji feature (helped immensely by the device’s 3D camera on its front side).
While it is true that LG did opt not to formally introduce a new flagship device offering at this year’s Mobile World Congress event (held just last month), fans of the brand may still be delighted to know that the South Korean tech giant may be planning to unveil the upcoming G7 smartphone in May of this year, at least according to a recent report published by ETNews.
LG’s fans may be a bit saddened that the phone maker had decided not to unveil a new flagship device offering at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress annual event (but the South Korean tech giant did showcase its new artificial intelligence software suite by way of the V30S ThinQ phablet). But the most ardent followers of the brand should still feel excited when it comes to any news about the follow up to last year’s G6.
