LG G7 ThinQ Global Rollout Begins, Starting From South Korea


LG may have delayed the release of this year's G flagship phone but we think it's worth the wait if you're to look at the fact that it is a ThinQ offering. The company has now announced the launch of the G7 ThinQ in its home market of South Korea. The 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant is priced at KRW 898,700 (roughly Rs. 56,500) and the LG G7+ ThinQ with 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage option is priced at KRW 976,800 (roughly Rs. 61,390). The company is also providing various launch offers on the device that can be found on the dedicated page. May 25 onwards, the LG G7 ThinQ will be available for pre-order via Sprint.

The tech giant said the G7 ThinQ will be sold through the country's three mobile carriers, along with unlocked editions at electronics shops starting May 18.

The awkwardly named G7 ThinQ is LG's latest flagship Android phone, and its first to feature an iPhone X-inspired notch at the top of the display. The handset will receive power from a 3,000mAh battery.

As reported earlier, the unlocked version of the LG G7 ThinQ 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant will be priced in the United Kingdom at GBP 649 (roughly Rs. 58,800) including Value-Added Tax and GBP 540.83 (roughly Rs. 49,000) excluding Value-Added Tax.

Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, dual-band WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and NFC. The secondary sensor is also of 16-megapixel with f/1.6 aperture and 71-degree lens. It also comes with new ThinQ-branded AI features in the camera, but those are also available on the standard V30. Sensors onboard include face recognition sensor and a fingerprint scanner.
