LG promises faster updates with new Software Upgrade Center


LG G7 ThinQ will officially launch in NY on May 2.

The LG G7 ThinQ is an evolution of the foundation laid by the LG V30S ThinQ, the first LG smartphone to embrace AI as part of its core features.

According to BGR, the South Korean electronics company LG really did consider canceling the previously called LG G7 possibly for the reason that the device seems to steal the design of the current iPhone X, which was believed to be the first iPhone in four years to receive a major redesign. There will also be a Live Photo feature, similar to the one found on the Apple iPhone and Portrait mode for both rear and front-facing cameras. This is the second smartphone from LG to come with the ThinQ branding. Entering the headphones probably won't.

The LG G6 was launched in early 2017 along with a marketing line that suggested it was designed for one-handed use in spite of the larger display. LG doing exactly the same with the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ. The device will feature a vertically-aligned dual-lens rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, a laser autofocus system, and a circular fingerprint sensor below it.

LG just made a pretty big announcement surrounding the future of software updates as they relate to their smartphone business. Power consumption won't be affected however, as the G7 ThinQ will use LG's M+ technology which features in the company's TVs. Some of these features were announced along with the V30S ThinQ and the V35 ThinQ hence represents a direct improvement on those functionalities. They don't reveal numerous other specs, but we can safely assume it will use the Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB RAM.

For those who don't know, ThinQ was created to identify all of LG's consumer electronics, home appliances and services that utilise artificial intelligence.
