Here we go folks, LG has stepped up to launch the G7 One — the company’s first ever Android One device. The LG G7 One sits their between a budget handset and a flagship. The phone’s got a budget phone offer like a 32GB storage and a single camera, while on the other hand, it comes with a Snapdragon 835 chipset, also seen on LG G6.
The sleek aesthetics of the phone is well complemented with a 6.1-inch QHD FullVision display. The pixel popping panel features a notch and an impressive 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The infamous notch is cramped up with LED notification lights, selfie camera, and a proximity sensor.
Optically, the phone’s pretty good. The rear’s highlighted with a single 16MP f/1.6 lens and a low-profile fingerprint scanner just below it. The selfie shooter, though, is ok with an 8MP sensor and f/1.9 80-degree wide angle lens.
Talking about the rarity, the Android One, the G7 One is one of the first LG devices to come with a stock Android. It runs on pure Android 8.1 Oreo and should receive the Android 9.0 Pie update sooner than usual. At least, it will be one of the first LG phones to receive it. Powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset, the phone has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. If that’s not enough, the 512GB expandable storage should do the job.
Despite cutting corners in camera and memory side, LG has rather opted for a number of other impressive features. The G7 One still has an IP68 rating, Quad DAC for great audio, DTS:X, and a 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.
The company also launched the G7 Fit with Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, IP68 rating, and Quad DAC support. The only downside here is that it is not a part of the Android One program, meaning, the device is expected to receive the Android 9.0 Pie update late than the G7 One.
