So popular leaker @OnLeaks in collaboration with
@TheMrPhone have provided 3D renders of the upcoming LG flagship, the LG G7. Actually, it is not much different from the
prototype that we saw at MWC. It is still surprising that a manufacturer
as big as LG will join the notch trend. However, this video from MWC shows that the
phone has an option to blacken out the area around the notch so it appears as if it doesn't
But, since LG is using M+LCD for the G7, and
we all know that LCD's don't produce deeper blacks, it's impossible for LG to hide the
notch, as you can see in this image. Anyways, there are other major changes to
the G7 this year, the cameras are now vertical with fingerprint scanner beneath them. The hardware buttons see a change as well. The power button has been shifted to the right
and if you take a look at the left side, there are 3 buttons.
If two of those buttons are the volume rocker
then what is the third button? Reports say this is a dedicated button for
activating the smart assistant. Sounds familiar? Yup, reminds me of Samsung's Bixby button. When it comes to specs, the phone is expected
to have a 6-inch M+LCD display rather than OLED with 19:9 aspect ratio, Snapdragon 845
processor, 4GB/6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of storage, and dual 16-megapixel cameras on the back. It all sounds pretty standard for 2018 Android
flagships and yeah, there's a headphone jack at the bottom too.
The G7 is expected to be announced at the
end of April. But, at this point, I'm beginning to wonder
whether the G7 will have any chance of standing out from the crowd of notched Android phones
this year. Anyways, let me know your thoughts on this
and I'll see you'll tomorrow…Peace out!.
