LG's been doing some... interesting things with its smartphone lineup. It's basically rereleased the V30 twice with marginally different specs, and the G7 ThinQ isn't very innovative either.

A year ago, it felt like LG was at the forefront of the next big movement for phone design. After handset sales had been dominated by models with 16:9 screens for so long, the G6 introduced us to the brave new world of 18:9 displays. And in the time since, we've seen manufacturer after manufacturer update their own lineups with similar phones featuring ultra-wide screens.

Then, just this week, Evan Blass reported that the company's upcoming flagship would be called the 'LG G7 ThinQ,' indicating it would have those same AI features.
