Now, when it comes to the IR Blaster LG has a long history, and before we start discussing whether the LG G7 will have this feature, we must learn a bit of the past. The GL G5 was a disaster for the company. As a flagship, it failed to deliver what the market asked for.

The only upside it had was the IR Blaster and it was known back then that people bought the LG G5 due to that feature only. Now, when it comes to the LG G6, LG decided to remove the IR Blaster and the removable battery making it a non-removable battery. What prompted LG to do this, we still arent sure. Maybe there had been a bug with the sensor, or due to some other errors, they decided to ditch it.
LG G6 is a success, but the exclusion of the IR sensor hurt its reputation. It was a benefit the people could have surely made use of. But we live in an unfortunate world where everything isnt fair and sometimes, life simply sucks. Moving on, when it comes to the LG G7, there is a high probability of LG including the IR sensor in the device. Surely they have received reports and complaints from the people and may be thinking of reintroducing the feature.

I personally think that LG removed the IR sensor from the LG G6 on purpose, so as to collect a customer response on the usefulness of the IR Blaster. It is possible and logical. The sensor may become useless if the people didnt use it. if the community demands it back in the LG G7, then there is a high chance of LG bringing it back. However, this is my personal thought on this matter. Whatever reason LG had may or may not agree with my line of thinking.

Why should I get the IR Blaster?
We live in an age of technology. Everything around is controlled by a remote. Its hair to keep track of all the remotes and should one get lost, paying for a replacement is a pain. To include all the functionalities into a convenient single controller is something we can easily afford and should always opt for.

Moreover, people themselves want such a feature on their phones. We have previous records to verify this claim. Although the G5 was a disastrous phone, people bought it only for the IR sensor. This proves the usefulness of the feature, and all the more reason for LG to include it in the LG G7.
