Despite coming packed inside of an unremovable plastic case for testing, the notch (perhaps the G7 ThinQ's most distinguishing and controversial feature) is visible, revealing itself on the phone's boot screen snuggled up to a notification LED indicator and a selfie camera.
That's up 20 percent year-on-year and it represents the first time LG has made a profit of over 1 trillion KRW in the first quarter of the financial year. The device with model number LG-G710TM may roll out next month with a notch, an nearly bezel-free screen, and a power button on the right.
The button on the right could be the power button, with the volume rocker located on the left. So add LG to the list of companies that have patented a version of a foldable phone or tablet.

The new 6.1-inch LG "G7 ThinQ" is rumored to launch in May and appears to be in its early testing phase in the USA, carrying the model number LG-G710TM. Both of which feature built-in WiFi to connect to the LG's webOS Smart TV platform. The Qualcomm processor is powerful but the RAM and memory could be better so it may compete with the upcoming premium flagship devices like the OnePlus 6, Google Pixel 3, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. With the LG G7, the company seems to integrate the flagship devices within the ThinQ brand. At the time, this device was rumored as the 'LG Judy' - a variant of the smartphone that LG developed but scrapped off.
The LG G7 ThinQ phone is said to have a 6.1-inch screen. The LG G7 ThinQ will be offering 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The phone will also have a notch similar to the iPhone X. All major Android vendors except Samsung have either already adopted the notch or are working to launch phones with the top cutout. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
