LG to include dedicated Google Assistant button on G7 ThinQ
The LG G7 will have a dedicated Google Assistant button.
LG will officially introduce the G7 Think smartphone on May 7th, however there's a lot of information on the upcoming phone already.
CNet's Roger Cheng reports that the G7 think will have a hardware button on the left side of the phone that will call up Google Assistant.
He also says this button cannot be remapped to any other function When you call up Assistant on the G7, you'll be able to use unique custom LG commands.
The G7 Think would be the first phone with a dedicated Google Assistant button.
Google's own Pixel phones don't bother with a button.
Instead, you can squeeze the sides of the Pixel to bring up Assistant.
Evan Blass tweeted out images of what the G7 could look like.
If the images are accurate, and Blass has a great track record, the G7 has thin bezels, along with a notch on the top of the display.
And about that name, LG has confirmed in a press release that the phone really is called the LG G7 ThinQ.
That's think with a q. The ThinQ name is already on LG's V30S ThinQ.
Phones with that branding feature LG's artificial intelligence software.
These phones also work better with other LG devices, like appliances and televisions.
Will there be any surprises left when the G7 ThinQ makes it's official debut?
We'll have to wait and see.
