Brighter and Louder: LG Releases G7 ThinQ in the Philippines

Yesterday, Korean electronics giant LG released its flagship G7 ThinQ smartphone into the Philippine market. The company hopes that the phone’s new features and improvements will hit the sweet spot in the increasingly competitive Pinoy gadget market.

The phone brings top flight specifications, a brighter screen, an improved camera and better speakers to the table along with a glass and metal body for a high-end feel.

Doing all the processing is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which is a standard among many Android-based flagship phones. Users can also opt for up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of fast internal storage. This configuration can handle heavy multitasking even with demanding applications all running at the same time.

Like many top-tier smartphones, the G7 ThinQ’s camera is assisted by an AI system that automatically refines settings based on the kind of shot you want to take. Landscape shots will prompt the system to recommend the wide angle lens while shots in the dark will warrant a suggestion for brighter flashes.

The front camera is rather standard at 8MP, but the rear dual cameras pack some serious punch. The main shooter has a f1.6 lens while the wide angle camera uses a f1.9.

The phone’s tall screen can now go twice as bright as most other flagship models at 1,000 nits. This makes for better screen visibility even when you’re outside on a sunny day.

For those who love listening to music, podcasts and audiobooks, the G7 ThinQ now has a boombox mode that allows it to emit sounds at a much higher volume than most phones without diminishing sound quality.

The LG G7 ThinQ currently retails at around PhP 42,995 depending on the retailer. The price point is considerably lower than those of other popular flagship smartphones such as the Apple iPhoneX and the Samsung Galaxy S9.
