LG announced that the LG G7 ThinQ will be unveiled in New York City on May 2 and in South Korea at I-Park Mall in Yongsan-gu Seoul on May 3. This will be the first G series smartphone that features the ThinQ brand.
Smartphones with ThinQ are equipped with Voice AI that is able to recognize voice commands, and Empathic AI, which is capable of limited human-like thinking. In the press release, LG says that the LG G7 ThinQ features an upgraded version of the Empathic AI. It says that this will enhance the interoperability of the phone with other devices.
LG's artificial technology was first featured on the LG V30S. Managing director of LG Electronics Ha Jeong-wook says that the company isn't trying to fill smartphones with new features but instead make existing features more convenient.
In its announcement, LG didn't name any features that will be available on the new phone.
