LG G7 ThinQ Update Brings 4K@60fps Video Recording Live And Active

LG G7 ThinQ owners, here’s a good news! Recording 4K video at 60fps has become a highly requested feature and the G7 ThinQ just received it through the latest firmware OTA update.

A new software update received by the LG G7 ThinQ in South Korea gets a new video recording mode – the coveted 4K at 60fps. For now, the update only currently available for the Korean version of the G7, but will likely make its way to other regions in the coming weeks.

First introduced this video recording at 60fps on iPhone X and followed by other big companies like Samsung and LG. The G7 ThinQ has made a 4K video recording feature since launch but it was limited to 30 frames per second. The new 60fps mode is limited to just 6 minutes, which is not that surprising, as many other Android phones that support 4K@60fps are also capable at 5 to 6 minutes of maximum recording time.

To enable the new video recording mode, that too, once your G7 ThinQ receives the update, head on over to Camera > Settings > Video Resolution, and then, choose the “UHD 16:9 (60fps) 3840 x 2160” option. Before, the quality options just listed UHD 16:9 3840 x 2160 for 4K.

You should also be aware of the limit on how long you can record 4K video at 60 frames per second. Due to thermal limitations or storage, it is limited to 5 to 6 minutes, but when 4K 30FPS video recording first made its way to Android smartphones it was limited due to terminals.

Other improvements and changes in the release notes also include “improved sharpness when shooting in auto mode,” a “Super Bright” mode for better photos when shooting with flash, improved rendering of the red and green colors, and other tweaks can be found under the changelog, which is aimed at improving the overall user experience.
