South Korean electronics company LG was present at Mobile World Congress (MWC), but didn’t focus its presentations on its next flagship phone, the LG G7. Instead, it showed off its LG V30S ThinQ with AI (artificial intelligence). While the V30S ThinQ with AI is a great device, we’re excited to see these new leaks of the G7! #mobilemagic
Israeli new media outlet Ynet managed to get a glimpse of the LG G7. The phone comes with a 6-inch screen and three cameras: an 8MP selfie shooter and two 16MP rear cameras, one with a f/1.6 lens aperture and optical stabilization, while the other one has a f/1.6 wide angle lens aperture. There is a notch to accommodate the front camera.
Irrespective of the notch, the real selling point is the display. According to Ynet, LG has managed to develop an OLED screen for the G7 with a 19:5.9 screen ratio and 900 ppi (pixels per inch)! We’re talking about a huge pixel density for a mobile screen, unlike anything else out there. For comparison, Sony Xperia XZ Premium showed off a 801 ppi screen last year, but since then no other flagship phone has even come close to that level of ppi. Currently, the iPhone X has a screen with 458 ppi, the Pixel 2 XL 538 ppi, the Galaxy S9 debuted at MWC 2018 with 570 ppi.
That’s not all. The LG G7 will sound better than ever before. The phone will use DTS:X sound technology and Boom Box, a new feature that allows the speakers to play audio louder when place on a surface. Just like LG V30S ThinQ, the G7 will make use of AI for the camera and come with Google Assistant.
It runs on the Snapdragon 845 chip with 4GB of RAM and at least 64GB of internal memory. Both of these specs will probably be upgraded for the “plus” model. The phone also comes with an 3,000mAH cell.
We’ll be sure to report on any new specs or features as they come out!
