The Xiaomi Mi Mix brought the bezel-less trend to the eyes of the people. To be honest, LG was the one who popularized it and was one of the many smartphone making companies to join the bandwagon of the bezel-less design this year with its flagship LG G6.

According to the patent, the G7 might come with an advanced iris scanner.

According to leaks of the G7, it will sport a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Just like any other device nowadays, the G7 will also feature a dual camera setup at the rear with a standard RGB sensor and a secondary wide angle sensor.
