TAGUIG, Philippines – The LG G7 ThinQ has been officially launched in the Philippines, and it will be available starting from P42,990 for the entry level model (4GB RAM / 64GB ROM).
For the price, the G7 offers a notch-topped, HDR10 compliant 6.1-inch IPS LCD screen running at 3120×1440 resolution, IPS68 dust / water resistance, and a dual rear camera array with a 16MP f/1.6 regular zoom sensor and a 16MP f/1.9 wide-angle sensor.
Performance-wise, it uses a Snapdragon 845 SoC with an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.8GHz and an Adreno 630 GPU, 4GB/6GB LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB/128GB UFS 2.1 storage.
Distinct features of the G7 include a dedicated button for the Google Assistant, as well as a unique speaker design. The single bottom-firing loudspeaker uses the phone’s chassis as a resonance chamber to amplify and produce a much louder sound compared to other phones.
Other notable features include a USB Type-C connector, Bluetooth 5.0 with A2DP, NFC, face unlock (in addition to a fingerprint scanner), DTS:X surround capable 3.5mm audio port, and a 3000 mAh battery.
Officially, Philippine units of the LG G7 ThinQ will come in two colors: New Aurora Black and New Moroccan Blue.
Unfortunately, it seems that the New Platinum Gray and Raspberry Rose variants will not be making its way into the local market anytime soon.
