A recent leak that surfaced on the web earlier on suggests the G7 ThinQ will be available in several colors including the Raspberry Blue, Platinum Grey, Moroccan Blue, as well as Aurora Black color options. The leak also revealed that LG will be embracing the screen notch design with virtually no bezels that was first introduced with the iPhone X.
Based on the leaked renders, the LG G7 ThinQ is tipped to feature a centrally placed dual rear camera setup with LED flash in a vertical arrangement, details of the used lenses aren’t available as of now, but there are speculations that the G7 ThinQ might be LG first device to sport an f/1.5 aperture to offer enhanced photography and videography in low light conditions. If the renders are legit, LG will remove the G series branding and instead paste an LG logo on the phone.
