Ahead of the IFA 2018 scheduled in Berlin, LG has announced its first Android One smartphone – LG G7.
The new smartphone comes with a 6.1- inch QHD+ display with a 3120 x 1440 resolution. Moreover, it has a notch(ed) display with super bright technology and encompasses Boombox speakers, similar to its predecessor LG G7 ThinQ.
Apart from that, the device packs a Snapdragon 835 processor, unlike the original LG G7 that arrived with Snapdragon 845. The device holds only 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage. While the phone does not carry a microSD slot, it continues to sustain the headphone jack with quad DAC technology.
As for the camera, it seems like LG G7 is going to emulate Google Pixel’s single rear camera. On the back, the device has a 16 MP f/1.6 camera while on the front, it holds an 8 MP f/1.9 selfie camera. The 3,000 mAh battery remains the same as previous LG ThinQ.
According to LG, the Android device will come at an “exceptional price” so we might see it fall somewhere between premium and mid-range. Since it’s an Android One device, it will work on the stock Android, instead of LG’s own software.
LG has also announced another addition to the G7 series – G7 fit. While the company says “ (it’s) designed to bridge the gap between mid-range and flagship models.” The device itself doesn’t come out as strong as the LG G7.
G7 Fit packs a Snapdragon 821 and lower specs camera. On the other hand, Quad DAC and the 3,000 mAh battery remains the same. Unlike the LG G7, the device works on the LG own software based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
