The G7 ThinQ: ready to do business

LG's latest phone will make you feel like you've got a personal assistant – and a professional photographer – hidden in your pocket.

LG's new G7 ThinQ is designed to make your workday go by a little more smoothly. Its dedicated Google Assistant button and super-sensitive microphone make getting information from Google easier than ever. A 1,000-nit display ensures you can see and read your screen clearly even on the brightest of summer days. And built-in artificial intelligence automatically adjusts camera settings to make sure every shot you take turns out like it was captured by a pro. Add in a powerful octa-core processor capable of handling any mobile productivity task with ease, and you might find your new phone as helpful and reliable as some of your employees.

Google Assistant front and centre

A dedicated Google Assistant button is located just below the audio control on the G7's side. Tap it to launch Google Assistant or hold it down and start talking. You can also access Google Assistant by voice from up to five metres away thanks to an incredibly sensitive microphone capable of distinguishing your commands from background noise. No other phone makes it easier to interact with – and get the information you need from – Google's automated helper.

A.I.-assisted photography

The G7's dual-lens camera uses machine learning to recognize subjects, be it a person, product or location, then automatically adjusts key settings to ensure you snap the best possible photo. What's more, LG's Super Bright Camera technology automatically merges pixels in darker scenes to create larger and more sensitive light receptors, resulting in clearer, brighter photos. Whether you're shooting staff headshots or products for your website, the G7 has you covered.

Industry-leading screen brightness

The G7's Super Bright Display technology ensures your screen is clear and readable even in extremely bright light. It sports an industry-leading 1,000-nit brightness, which automatically switches on in bright environments – and also switches off after a few minutes to conserve battery life and prevent overheating – so that you don't need to tinker with display settings just to read an email or text.

Potent processing

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset at the heart of the G7 is built around a 64-bit 2.8 GHz octa-core processor and 4 GB of speedy memory. All of these numbers add up to a powerhouse flagship phone capable of running multiple resource-intense productivity applications side by side smoothly and reliably.

Serious sound

Tinny smartphone speakers aren't conducive to hands-free calls or sharing videos with colleagues. LG combats this problem by boosting the G7's sound output using the phone's internal space as a resonance chamber, resulting in twice the low-end of a standard smartphone. Better still, placing the phone on certain types of surfaces – such as a wooden desk – amplifies the effect.
