Update: We are only hours away from the launch of the LG G7 ThinQ, and before that last photographic leak the phone has been completely displayed.
The LG G7 ThinQ is released today, and we know almost everything about LG's new flagship smartphone. Our exclusive report has given us a lot of information about the Android phone.
Sure, the G7 is a bit behind the competition, with the Samsung Galaxy S9, the Galaxy S9 Plus, the Sony Xperia XZ2, the Huawei P20 and the P20 Pro already launched. But that only means that LG has more to prove.
So, what does the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ offer? It will be a bigger revision compared to the gradual increase LG V30S ThinQ that's for sure. We already know that it will have a bright 6.1-inch screen, based on leaks and the company's own admission.
We are hours away from the LG G7 ThinQ release date . Here is everything we know so far about the new smartphone.
Cut to the hunt
- What is it? Smart phone 2018 LG badge
- When is it coming out? Announced today, May 2  How much will it cost? G6 was $ 650 (£ 649, AU $ 1,000), but G7 ThinQ could be more
LG G7 ThinQ release date and price
- LG G7 ThinQ to be announced today , May 2
- It is likely to cost more than $ 650 (£ 649, AU $ 1,000)
LG G7 ThinQ will be announced today, May 2 in New York, LG has confirmed. The company has not said when it can buy it, but the latest rumors point to mid-May. It's later than last year's G6, but that's not too surprising, since apparently the company recently started redesigning the phone from scratch.
When it hits stores, it will not be cheap. In line with other LG flagships, we expect it to cost at least $ 650 (£ 649, AU $ 1,000), the price of the LG G6 at launch. If you believe some LG G7 price rumors, you can even raise the price by $ 90 (£ 70, AU $ 120).
That's a lot of cash, but it's not as expensive as some other flagships, including the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
LG G7 ThinQ design
- A full-screen design in five colors
- A retro-oriented fingerprint scanner
We recently saw a filtered render of the LG G7 ThinQ, which shows the design and the five colors in which it will apparently be launched.
It is said that they are called Aurora Black, Platinum Gray, Moroccan Blue, Moroccan Blue and Raspberry Rose. 19659024] This is probably the final form of the LG G7 ThinQ in five tones.

Meanwhile, the design includes a front almost on the entire screen with a notch on the top, while the back (probable) is quite simple and houses a camera do s lenses and a fingerprint scanner.
However, that crystal could be a fingerprint magnet, as can be seen in the photos filtered below, apparently taken in a store that jumped when the LG G7 ThinQ was exhibited.
It is a design that has also been shown in a press rendered by reliable leak leakers, so it is very likely that this is the LG G7 ThinQ design.

The angle here also highlights the slightly rounded metal frame and the power button on the right edge. Evan Blass has also shown additional images of the phone, highlighting the black color scheme and the presence of a 3.5mm headphone port.
We have also seen other filtered images of the phone. It is partially obscured by a plastic casing, but you can see the notch and screen almost without bezel, plus a power button on the right side and what could be an AI button on the left.
