Two variants of an LG Electronics-made device that's widely believed to be the upcoming G7 ThinQ have been certified by the National Radio Research Agency in the company's home country of South Korea, with the smartphone that's set to be officially announced next week now seemingly being ready for its commercial debut. The handsets in question are identified by the model numbers LM-G710V and LM-G710N, with the latter one presumably denoting a version of the G7 ThinQ that will be sold exclusively in the Far Eastern country. The former model has already been certified in Russia and is expected to be the one that most European countries will receive in the coming weeks.
The LG G7 ThinQ has already been detailed as part of comprehensive product documentation obtained by AndroidHeadlines earlier this month, with all signs pointing to yet another handset focused on emerging artificial intelligence technologies, much like the recently launched LG V30S ThinQ. The upcoming smartphone will ship with an extra physical button below its volume keys that will be used for launching the Google Assistant, according to several previous leaks. The device itself is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chip and 6GB of RAM, with its base model also featuring 64GB of storage space and a microSD card slot with support for up to 2TB of expandable memory.
The dual-camera setup of the handset is said to boast support for various AI solutions, including an intelligent Auto mode that will recognize the subjects of your shots and adjust its shooting parameters accordingly. A quad-DAC setup is also said to be part of the package, together with a 3.5mm audio jack and a USB Type-C port. The smartphone manufacturer recently confirmed the LG G7 ThinQ will be officially announced on May 2, with the handset hence being expected to start retailing on a global level by early summer. The flagship will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and come with IP68-certified resistance to dust particles and water, as per recent reports.
