LG’s stupidly named G7 ThinQ set for May 2nd unveiling

Now that Huawei has successfully launched its P20 Pro, it is hard to imagine what LG could do to overcome that phone and surprise Android fans, but the Korean company will surely prove it. As noted by Engadget LG has set an official release date of May 2 for its next flagship, which is to carry the clumsy G7 ThinQ title (pronounced "thanks" with an "i", and yes, the representatives of LG already made that joke during CES in January).

There will be two launch events for LG G7 ThinQ: one in New York City on May 2, for an international audience, and another in LG's home. Seoul on May 3. Like the P20 Pro and most of the Android flagships this year, the G7 is set to have a notch at the top of the screen, although a leak from the Mobile World Congress in February showed that LG already plans to offer the option to disguise that notch.

After having applied the ThinQ brand to their appliances at CES, LG extended it to phones with the disappointing V30S ThinQ, and now the company's next flagship will continue the expansion. The latest filtering with respect to the G7 indicated that it would have a physical button on its left side dedicated to LG's AI functions, and LG's press release today promises a new level of mobile convenience facilitated by AI. We'll know more about the exact improvements in three weeks (or, more likely, much sooner, thanks to more leaks and advances from LG).
