LG may not have introduced the G7 at the MWC 2018 event but the device is surely staying in the news thanks to leaks and rumors. Today we are hearing that the device is said to feature a dedicated A.I button and f/1.5 aperture. According to the ETNews, the device is expected to go official in Seoul at the end of April and will be launched in Korea in mid-May.
The dedicated A.I hardware button will be placed on the side of the device falling in line with the recently leaked rendered images. If this rumors indeed turns out true, then LG will also have an extra button like Samsung flagship phones with Bixby button. This A.I button will let users easily access the phone’s AI capabilities including Google Assistant and LG’s own Q Lens and Q Voice.
With LG focusing too much on A.I capabilities off lately, it makes sense having a dedicated button. In fact, LG’s recent launches; LG V30S ThinQ completely focused on A.I features. On the other hand, we still can’t claim the Bixby button on the S8 and S9 flagships a universally loved feature. So, it will be interesting to see how LG aims to implement a new dedicated hardware button and if the company would allow users to revamp the button as they like.
Moving along, another big reveal surrounding the G7 is that the phone would have a f/1.5 aperture. This will be putting the flagship inline with the Samsung’s S9 flagship. Having widest aperture allows more light to enter the camera and reach the sensor. other details of flagship include a 6.1-inches MLCD+ display, Snapdragon 845, 6GB RAM, 64GB of storage and one with 128GB of storage.
