After a string of mostly accurate rumors, the LG G7 ThinQ (we’ll call it LG G7) has just been made official, and we bring you more than specs: we had an opportunity to have significant hands-on time with the new handset, and access to the engineers and product marketing personnel who contributed to building this phone. They provided invaluable information and insight into the goals, challenges, and results of all the work that lead to LG’s new mainstream flagship.

For contextual purposes, it is important to remind that the G-Series is built to bring maximum value to the user. On the other hand, the V-Series is designed to cater to the enthusiasts at the very high-end, where price is less of a factor. This G-Series is faithful to this spirit and sees technology from LG’s V30 handset trickle down into the LG G7. “Show and Sound” has been one of the slogans for the LG G-Series, and it is true once again.

Note: we spent time with pre-production units of the LG G7, and the final version may vary slightly.
