LG apparently asked its user if they would like to see the notch which was first seen on iPhone X on their latest flagship device. Only after getting the nod from their user, LG decided to add it to their G7 ThinQ.
LG reportedly surveyed over 1000+ people in the United States, South Korea, United Kingdom and Italy to get to the final design of the phone. As the poll results were finally stacked up, it showed that only a mere 30% people seem to have had a ‘hatred’ for the notch.
People went on to compare the notch to their design, according to a statement from LG’s head of product planning, Shintae Hong. “Some people hated that design, [pointing to himself] it’s like a man’s bald head like mine”. He added, “Some people said its cool” It totally depends on their personal choices and preferences
Coming to LG G7 ThinQ, the 6.1” end to end phone is powered by Snapdragon 845, sporting 4GB RAM and 64GB internal expandable up to 2TB via external SD card. It also has an iPhone-like dual camera with the primary shooter being 16MP f/1.6 and the other being 16MP f/1.9. The phone houses 3000mAh battery. Although the price of the device hasn’t been announced it yet, if rumours are to be believed, the phone is launched as an answer to the high priced Samsung flagship Galaxy S9 and S9+.
What’s interesting to note here is that the notch on Apple’s iPhone X was criticised by the users and pundits alike. While some went on to regard the notch as ‘disaster’, some had nothing praise for the new creative touch to the iPhones. In a nutshell, the notch has always been controversial. However, now it seems like people have made peace with the design and seem to have like it.
