Try out the new LG G7+ ThinQ at Zouk tomorrow, 22 May

LG G7+ ThinQ

LG is hosting a preview of their new G7+ ThinQ flagship phone at Singapore’s Zouk club tomorrow, 22 May. Open to the public from 6–8PM, the event dangles a couple of incentives for would-be attendees, particularly fans of South Korean boy band BTS.

It begins with the door gift. The first 50 to attend will receive “a LG X BTS special premium”, the details of which will only be revealed at the event. Once inside, you’ll find standees of the BTS members — they’re part of an Instagram contest where three sets of S$100 shopping vouchers are up for grabs.

The G7+ ThinQ represents LG’s new mobile approach in the wake of a leadership shuffle late last year. It’s the latest entry in their G series, but the ThinQ (“thin Q”) label points to this being a smarter smartphone — the hot new trend in the market. Specifically, the G7+ ThinQ sports an AI-assisted camera that can better identify and categorize scenes. After calculating the usual exposure adjustments, it’ll present a set of filters to enhance the photo.

And that’s why LG has a whole bunch of cardboard boys for attendees to take photos of. Or with. Other than the dual 16MP rear cameras, the G7+ ThinQ has other G-series features such as support for 32-bit 192kHz audio and DTS:X.
