LG has already confirmed that it will unveil its latest flagship device the LG G7 ThinQ on May 2 at an event scheduled to be held in New York. The upcoming flagship device from LG has been a subject of speculation since MWC 2018, all thanks to rumors and leaked renders. Now a new leak has appeared online to suggest what the company has in store for the LG G7 ThinQ.
An earlier report had claimed that LG is likely to move the power button of the device to its right side. Now, the new leaked image shared by well-known leaker Evan Blass confirms the earlier report. The image posted by Evan Blass seem to be an official press render of the LG G7 ThinQ which shows the smartphone’s background expanding from the display.
The leaked render also shows the presence of the power button on the right side of the device. This seems to be the biggest change that the upcoming flagship device is expected to come with. LG had previously moved the power button and the volume rocker key to the rear panel of the device but now, it seems to have undone its own work. Also since the power button has been moved to the right side, the fingerprint sensor housed on the rear panel may only serve its primary function this time and may not work as a power button.
The image has also revealed that the LG G7 ThinQ will feature an iPhone X like Notch at the top of the display that hides the front camera, earpiece, and the iris scanner. Apart from that, the device will not come with an edge to edge like the iPhone X. In addition, LG is expected to keep the 3.5mm audio connector intact in its latest flagship device.
To recall, the LG G7 ThinQ was expected to get launched at the MWC 2018 held in February but it did not happen and the launch was postponed to a later date. Apparently, the company was not happy with the progress of the LG G7 ThinQ and had ordered its team to rework the smartphone from scratch.
