LG's upcoming flagship smartphone will match the Galaxy S9 in two areas: aperture and dedicated AI button.

Based on ETNews' report, LG's next flagship smartphone - presumably the G7 - will sport a rear camera with f/1.5 aperture which will put it in the same league as the Galaxy S9/S9+. However, the G7 will not have a dual-aperture camera module.

The G7 is also said to have a dedicated AI button on the side. Similar to the Bixby button on the Galaxy phones, the dedicated AI button on the G7 will allow users to access AI features such as Google Assistant and LG's own Q Lens and Q Voice. 

Other rumored specs include a MLCD+ display which consumes less power than regular LCD, 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 845, and 64GB/128GB storage options. 

LG is reportedly holding an event at the end of the month in Seoul to launch the G7 and retail availability is slated for mid May.
