LG is also expanding its G7 model series in Germany with the Fit model. The new release has the same big screen as the G7 Thinq, but the buyer does not get the high-end processor from Qualcomm. Also on a dual camera buyers of the G7 Fit must do without.
The G7 Fit has a 6.1-inch touchscreen with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. As a result, the smartphone is still in the hand despite the large screen. With a resolution of 3,120 x 1,440 pixels, content should be crisp and clear. LG promises that the display with up to 1000 nit should be particularly bright, so that it is easily legible even in direct sunlight. For this purpose, additional white pixels were built into the display.
On the back is a 16-megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 2.2 and a phase autofocus, on a dual camera omitted LG on the new model. The smartphone has the function AI Cam of the G7 Thinq. Thus, there are eight motif programs to choose from, which should provide better pictures. We were not always satisfied with the test of the G7 Thinq because it changes the saturation and contrast of the photo – and not always for the better. On the display side there is an 8-megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 1.9.

The smartphone features Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor with a maximum clock speed of 2.35 GHz. In addition to 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory, there is a slot for micro SD cards up to 2 TB. As with the G7 Thinq, the new model features the Boombox speakers, which did not quite convince us.
The LTE smartphone supports 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2 LE Wi-Fi and has a GPS receiver, NFC chip and fingerprint sensor. There is also a USB Type-C connector and a 3.5mm jack. The smartphone is protected against water and dust according to IP68.
The smartphone is delivered with Android 8.1 aka Oreo. Whether it gets an update on Android 9 alias Pie, is not known. The battery in the G7 Fit has a nominal charge of 3,000 mAh and can be charged more quickly with the help of a fast charging system.
LG wants to bring the G7 Fit this week for 400 euros on the market. So far, it is not listed at online retailers.
