There is one more flagship smartphone in the making having a notch at the top – the LG G7. That, however, is least surprising considering that that always being speculated.
However, what has brought the LG G7 right back in the news is a new video that depicts fresh new renders of the smartphone, revealing some new details of the device in the process as well. That includes a headphone jack at the bottom left while the middle is graced by a USB Type-C port. On the right is the speaker grill.
Further, a single button can be seen on the side at the left, and it is being speculated to be the power button. That if true will be an interesting development considering that LG traditionally has been using a rear-mounted power button/volume buttons that also doubled up as the fingerprint scanner.
More surprises lie on the right side which is now seen to have three distinct buttons. Taking into account two switches for volume control, LG might have some exotic ideas for the third button. Maybe it’s going to be something along the lines of the dedicated button for Bixby that Samsung has put up on its flagship handsets.
The front, of course, is all display save for the now famous notch at the top. The notch also isn’t as expansive as on the iPhone X, which again can be explained from the fact it won’t likely be hosting extra sensors to power Face ID sort of thing that the Apple device offers. The display also isn’t lighted which does not quite show the extent of the screen though a slim chin does seem present.
The rear is dominated by a twin camera placed in a vertical line-up at the top middle. That is complemented by an LED flash along the side while the fingerprint sensor is placed right beneath the twin cam. The rear again is made of curved glass though the sides are of metal. The top does not seem to hold anything save for two microphones.
In the end, what has to be kept in mind though is that the video hasn’t been revealed by official LG channels. Instead, it happens to be the handiwork of @TheMrPhone and @OnLeaks. However, it is the latter that makes us believe the render does have something in it considering its near perfect reputation with realistic renders.
LG Judy tipped to be the successor to G6, will likely sport a completely new design
The G7 meanwhile is expected to be launched in June, which means there is going to be a few more leaks and renders likely coming our way in between.
