Flanking the almost bezel-free display, LG's upcoming phone looks to feature a power button on its right side, and on its left could be a dedicated AI button, thus putting its smart efforts into full swing after introducing them first on the LG V30S ThinQ.

LG's AI platform consists of Q Lens and Q Voice that could be controlled by an AI button.

Time will tell how what DTS delivery in a room will be like from built-in TV speakers, but if anyone can make it work a manufacturer with the resources LG has can. With the LG G7, the company seems to integrate the flagship devices within the ThinQ brand.

These will include the OnePlus 6 and its Snapdragon 845 and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of internal storage configuration, as well as phones to come later in 2018, which we expect to include the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Google Pixel 3. Android Headlines speculates that the "Plus" model fo the device could have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

ETNews added that the LG G7 ThinQ would feature a dual camera system on the back with an f/1.5 aperture that will allow you to take better, clearer pictures in low-light conditions. The front camera will also be used for facial recognition besides taking selfies.

LG Display may have scored big time – it sold flexible OLED displays to Huawei for the curved screen of the Mate RS Porsche Design. Sources told The Investor that the switch to LCD is aimed at keeping costs down. LG OLED panels have had a history of issues. ETNews suggests that LG may be responsible for successfully mating the Goodix-made reader to the display. AnTuTu scores for the phone were also leaked alongside. LG will optimize the software to hide the notch when watching videos or playing games to ensure that the cutout doesn't hurt the user experience.

The stakes are particularly high for LG, due to lackluster performance in the flagship smartphone world as of late.
