SEOUL, May 17 (Yonhap) -- LG Electronics Inc. said Thursday its recently introduced flagship smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ, will hit shelves this week for the first time in South Korea, with the global launch also planned soon.

The tech giant said the LG G7 ThinQ will be sold through the country's three mobile carriers, along with unlocked editions at electronics shops starting Friday. The company started to accept preorders last week.

Available in three colors, blue, black and red, the 64GB LG G7 ThinQ comes with a price tag of 898,700 won (US$830), with that of the 128-GB LG G7 ThinQ Plus version reaching 976,800 won. The versions come with 4 GB and 6 GB of RAM, respectively.

The smartphones boast a 6.1-inch "Super Bright Display" screen, with a whopping brightness of 1,000 nits, a measure that refers to one candela per square meter. They also come with a "New Second Screen" at the top of the display, which is similar to the notch design found on Apple Inc.'s iPhone X.

The LG G7 ThinQ features a main camera with dual lenses, both using 16 megapixel sensors, along with an 8-megapixel selfie camera. The dual system is comprised of a zoom and wide angle lens setup.

The company said it plans to purchase used smartphones from buyers of the LG G7 ThinQ for up to 185,000 won. LG claimed it will compensate users 100 million won in case personal data is leaked from the used handsets.

"The LG G7 ThinQ, which upgraded basic features used frequently by all users, will provide people with a new level of convenience," LG said.
