We already know that LG will be unwrapping the 7th generation of its G-series of Smartphones (LG G7 ThinQ) on May 2nd and May 3rd in New York and South Korea respectively. The company will reveal the pricing and availability details of the upcoming flagship at the event. While a variant of the device probably destined for European countries has already been certified in Russia, a new report out of South Korea suggests that two variants of the device have been certified in that country.
As per the report, two variants of the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ with the model numbers LM-G710V and LM-G710N, have been certified by the National Radio Research Agency in South Korea.
While the agency certification page doesn’t give us any details about the certified device, recent reports have it that the device might come with full view display with a screen notch and a dedicated button on the side which many believe could be dedicated to LG’s AI feature. There is also the possibility that the dedicated button might be the company’s AI-powered camera feature rather than a Bixby clone.

In terms of specs, reports have it that the LG G7 ThinQ will come with hardware combo that is quite on par with what we expect from today’s flagships, but might soon be dethroned by upcoming flagships including the next Pixel from Google and the phablet Galaxy Note 9.
Flaunting a 6.1-inches (1440 x 3120 pixels) FullVision MLCD+ display with the screen notch, the upcoming LG G7 ThinQis expected to be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with 4GB RAM/6GB RAM and 64GB SSD. It will come with Android 8.1 Oreo with LG UX out of the box, while an 8-megapixel selfie camera, a dual 16-megapixel rear camera, and a fingerprint sensor located on the back are also said to be onboard.
Right now, it’s set in stone that the G7 ThinQ will be made official at Metropolitan West in Manhattan, New York on the 2nd, and a public event on Yongsan Ip Park Mall in Seoul on the 3rd.
