The LG G7 ThinQ was first teased and then finally revealed in early May this year and it continues LG’s yearly update of their mid-to-high range G series Android smartphones. Oh, and yeah, it has a notch. Now we know when Australians can get their hands on it, how much it will cost and what’s hiding beneath that notch-carrying, 6.1-inch, Super Bright Display. Besides the troubling caps-no-caps name (ThinQ, really?), it’s looking the goods.

We’ve got everything you need to know about the LG G7 right here.

LG G7 ThinQ Specifications

Besides having a dastardly name, the LG G7 is sporting some impressive features. Of particular note is the notched screen (that you can switch off should you desire) and the massive 19.5:9 screen ratio, which keeps it in line with the G6. That phone had an impressive screen – and it seems the G7 will continue that tradition this year.

Here’s a look at the chief specs:

LG G7 ThinQ Pricing

The LG G7 will retail at $1099, wich puts it in the same sort of space as the Huawei P20, as well as Samsung’s latest flagship S9, Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Google Pixel 2. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against those phones – so stay tuned for more.

You did it. You waited out all the announcements during Mobile World Congress and the deluge of new handsets that debuted in the last few months. But now, after upstarts such as Essential have had a chance to shine and giants like Apple and Samsung are done plying their latest wares, there's a big question worth asking.
