LG has begun its usual cycle of announcing features of its upcoming flagship phone before announcing the phone itself, and this time it's for a pretty important specification: the screen of the G7 ThinQ. We know from countless leaks that the G7 will have a display notch, but now LG is updating its technology.
The G7 screen is a 6.1-inch IPS LCD panel with one Resolution of 3210 x 1440. LG is above all the screen brightness, which reaches up to 1000 nits and allegedly uses up to 30 percent less power than the G6; it is even referred to as "Super Bright Display". The screen also covers 100 percent of the DCI P3 color space. These specifications alone are not necessarily groundbreaking, so we need to see how LG's claim shakes "the brightest and liveliest ad on the smartphone market today."
The LCD of the G7 is a little surprising given the much-vaunted return of LG to the OLED with last year's V30. However, the screen of this phone has not been well received, and LG Display's OLED chops continue to come under fire with the mediocre panel of Google Pixel 2 XL. With LG reportedly making serious efforts to become a major OLED player, the G7 should serve as an indicator of the company's progress. The LCD is all the more eye-catching as the G7 has the option of weakening the display notch, a feature that works much better with the ability of the OLED to "turn off" individual pixels. Anyway, all this is a lot of words on a screen that we did not see for ourselves, so stay tuned for the G7 launch next week on May 2nd.
