LG G7 THINQ OFFERS DEEP AI INTEGRATION
FOR MAXIMUM USER CONVENIENCE
A Complete Premium Smartphone with the Most Advanced Processor,
Brilliant Display, Booming Audio and Intelligent Camera
NEW YORK, May 2, 2018 — LG Electronics (LG) today introduced its latest premium smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ, focusing on bringing useful and convenient AI features to the fundamental consumer smartphone experience.
Powered by the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 Mobile Platform, the LG G7 ThinQ offers 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage to run even the most demanding tasks and apps with ease. Equipped with a stunning 6.1-inch bright display has is nearly half an inch larger than its predecessor but not a hair wider, the LG G7 ThinQ is sized perfectly to be used with one hand.
Sporting a new design aesthetic for the G series, the polished metal rim gives the LG G7 ThinQ a sleeker, more polished look, complemented by Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back for enhanced durability. Again rated IP68 for dust and water resistance, the LG G7 ThinQ passed 14 MIL-STD 810G tests designed by the United States military to evaluate the performance of equipment in harsh environments.
Upgraded Camera with More Intelligence
The LG G7 ThinQ has been upgraded with an 8MP camera up front and 16MP lenses on the back in both standard and Super Wide Angle configurations for higher resolution photos with more details. LG’s signature wide angle camera now captures even more beautiful landscapes with less edge distortion and selfies are clearer and look more natural compared with previous LG phones.
LG has further enhanced the AI features of the camera that first debuted in the LG V30S ThinQ. AI CAM now offers 19 shooting modes, up from eight, for even more intelligence-optimized shots. And users can improve their photos further by choosing one of four pre-set color options after the camera has identified the object or scene.
Low light photography on the LG G7 ThinQ is taken to a whole new level with the new Super Bright Camera with images that are up to four times brighter without the graininess typical of photos shot in dim light. Through the combination of the image sensors and software processing, the AI algorithm adjusts the camera settings automatically for the best balance of brightness, clarity, resolution and colors when shooting in low light.
LG has also added new features that make photography on the LG G7 ThinQ even more enjoyable than ever. Live Photo mode records one second before and after the shutter is pressed for snippets of unexpected moments or expressions that would normally be missed. Stickers uses face recognition to generate fun 2D and 3D overlays such as sunglasses and headbands that can be viewed directly on the display.
New to the G series, Portrait Mode generates professional looking shots with out-of-focus backgrounds. This bokeh effect can be generated using either the standard or Super Wide Angle lens, giving shutterbugs even more creative options.
Easier and Smarter With AI
The LG G7 ThinQ will be one of the first smartphones to offer Google Lens right out of the box. Available inside Google Assistant and Google Photos, Google Lens was developed as an object recognition tool that uses the combination of the smartphone camera, AI and machine learning. Google Lens can identify and deliver more information on objects such as landmarks, plants, animals and books. Text recognition will also be supported where users can visit websites, add a business card to contacts, add events to the calendar or look up an item on a restaurant menu right from Google Lens.
Located just below the volume buttons, the Google Assistant Key provides LG G7 ThinQ owners with direct access to the phone’s AI functions. A single tap of the key will launch Google Assistant while two quick taps will launch Google Lens. Users can also hold down the button and begin talking to Google Assistant immediately without waiting for the tone prompt and release the button when done.
With Super Far Field Voice Recognition (SFFVR) and the smartphone’s highly sensitive microphone, Google Assistant can recognize voice commands from up to five meters away. SSFVR is able to separate commands from background noise, making the LG G7 ThinQ a great alternative to a home AI speaker even when the TV is on or the vacuum cleaner is running. And with more Google Assistant commands exclusive only to the LG G7 ThinQ, users can get even more stuff done with their voice alone.
Super Bright Display Outshines the Competition
The first thing customers will notice about the LG G7 ThinQ will likely be the new 6.1-inch QHD+ (3120 x 1440) display sporting a 19.5:9 FullVision screen ratio and a bottom bezel which is almost 50 percent slimmer than on the LG G6. Powered by LG’s new LCD technology, Super Bright Display, the LG G7 ThinQ can be viewed easily even under direct sunlight with its industry-leading 1,000 nit (based on DCI-P3 standard) display.
And depending on the type of content, the display can be set to six different viewing modes: Auto, Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game and Expert. In Auto mode, the phone automatically analyzes the content – photo, video, website, game, etc. – and optimizes the display and power consumption. The user can fine tune the image even further by adjusting the screen temperature and RGB levels individually.
The smartphone’s New Second Screen gives users flexible options when it comes to setting up the display to fit their tastes and style. The display can be fully expanded for a bezel-less look or it can be set to a more traditional style where the section of the display on both sides of the camera lens and speaker is blacked out. If black is too staid, users can even change this part of the display to another color altogether for a more “personal” effect.
Unmatched Audio Experience in a Smartphone
Continuing LG’s commitment to deliver unrivaled audio experience on its smartphones, the LG G7 ThinQ offers premium audio innovations that remains unmatched in the industry. Available for the first time in the LG G7ThinQ, Boombox Speaker utilizes the internal space of the LG G7 ThinQ as a resonance chamber to deliver double the bass of conventional smartphones for powerful “boombox” sound without the need for external speakers. When placed on a solid surface or box, the smartphone utilizes its resonance chamber as a woofer to amplify the bass effect even more.
The LG G7 ThinQ is also the first smartphone to offer DTS:X to deliver virtual 3D sound for all content, up to 7.1 channel audio with headphones. Carrying on the heritage of LG’s focus on great smartphone sound, the LG G7 ThinQ is equipped with a Hi-Fi Quad DAC for incredibly rich sound when paired with high-impedance headphones.
“The LG G7 ThinQ is strongly focused on the fundamentals and its launch marks a new chapter for our company,” said Hwang Jeong-hwan, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Through the combination of personalized and useful AI functionalities with meaningful smartphone features, this is LG’s most convenient smartphone yet.”
The LG G7 ThinQ will roll out in the coming days in South Korea followed by major markets in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia. Price and purchase details will be announced locally closer to the time of availability.
