In the absence of a little more than two weeks until its presentation, the LG G7 ThinQ continues revealing new details with some advance. This morning, we have known that LG’s new flagship phone would not come alone, but would come with a second smartphone from the “V” line, the LG V35 ThinQ.

However, this time we have to focus on what will truly be the flagship South Korean of this first half of the year. And is that thanks to CNET , today we finally know what will one of the secret details of the G7 ThinQ do?

The first images and renders of the device , they showed us that the company would intend to put aside the characteristic back button that has been accompanying LG’s flagship phones since the arrival of the G2. In this seventh generation, the classic side buttons would be replaced again … but there was something that did not fit. Instead of two buttons, one to turn the screen on and off, and another to turn volume up and down, a third appeared on the scene, whose operation was totally unknown … until now.

As confirmed by a source close to the company, familiar with the device, the mentioned button would be dedicated to invoke the virtual Assistant Google Assistant . This is a system that Samsung released with its Galaxy S8 and S8 +, although in that case was aimed at enabling the Bixby assistant, and later, Google did the same with their Pixel 2 through some frames squeezable inspired by HTC’s Edge Sense technology.

Given that the LG G7 will be part of the LG ThinQ family of devices, belonging to the same ecosystem in which artificial intelligence is the core, LG would have decided, in addition, not to settle for the native capabilities of the Google Assistant – which are not few-. Because, the brand would have decided to take advantage the new policies of the Google platform to add your own custom commands and voice commands , destined to execute different native functions of the device itself, or to improve the integration with the rest of gadgets of the ecosystem ThinQ, such as televisions, washing machines and other LG products.

The LG G7 ThinQ will be presented next May 2 , at an event to be held in New York. To this day, however, we already know a good number of details about the terminal , and I’m afraid that the rate of leaks will not stop until the last day.
