There's even more evidence piling up that the upcomingphone will have a notch.
Frequent mobile tipster Evan Blass late on Monday tweeted an image of the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ that looks like an ad or promotional render. The picture gives a clear view of the front of the phone, showing off details like the large screen, thin bezels and an -style notch above the display -- or, more specifically, the colored screen on either side of a well-shaded area that's presumably a cut-out for the camera and sensors. Take a look at the tweet below; it helps to enlarge the image to see the screen "wings" on either side of the notch.
The picture also depicts a side-mounted button, which Blass claims is the power button. On previous LG phones, like the , the power button was integrated into the rear fingerprint scanner. Moving the power button to the side of the phone would signal a small design change for LG's G series, one that brings it back in line with the majority of phones.
We can't independently verify the authenticity of Blass' image -- LG did not immediately respond to our request for comment -- but it does fall in line with other rumoredand , which also show the phone with a notched display.

The , , and each have their own version of the notch. On top of that, Google is building its latest version of the Android OS, Android P, with .
But not everyone is a fan of the notch. Some believe that it sticks out like a sore thumb or could get in the way of viewing full-screen video or pictures. Fortunately for those people, the by blacking out the top corners of the phone. We've seen , and it helps make the notch a lot less noticeable.
. Besides the announcement date, only the phone's name and ThinQ branding have been confirmed. But we wouldn't at all be surprised if a notch enters into the phone's design.
