The G7 ThinQ may be LG's new hotness, but it's not the only new smartphone that the company is pushing out.

LG today revealed the Q7, the newest member of its mid-range Q series. There are actually three versions of the device — the Q7, Q7+, and Q7α — each with its own spec configuration.

All three models include a 5.5-inch 2160x1080 display with 18:9 aspect ratio, and unlike the G7 ThinQ, there's no notch to be found. Each phone also includes IP68 water and dust resistance, FM radio, a rear fingerprint reader, a microSD card slot, Android 8.0 Oreo, a 3000mAh battery, and either a 1.5GHz octa-core processor or 1.8GHz octa-core processor.

Additionally, LG has equipped its new Q7 phones with a QLens AI feature that'll let you point your camera at an item to get info on where to buy it online. Q Lens can also perform an image search to get you additional images of food, clothes, celebrities, and landmarks

Meanwhile, the LG Q7+ gets a bump to 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, and a 16MP rear camera with PDAF. Like the standard Q7, it'll come equipped with either an 8MP or wide angle 5MP front camera and Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue, and Lavender Violet colors.
