With LG back on track to release their next flagship level smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ, the company has provided some information about the display and how it will stand out from what is available on the market today. Keep in mind that LG officials earlier this year temporarily halted release of the G7 while unique selling points were developed to justify not only the device, but potentially LG staying in the high-end smartphone market. Some of the improvements and changes reflect that work.
For the LG G7 ThinQ, the company plans to use a 6.1-inch IPS LCD display. LG says it will be capable of going up to 1000 nits in brightness, which would make it the brightest display available that is based on IPS LCD technology. AMOLED screens like those used by Samsung in can do the same, but only in bright sunlight. LG also says the new panel can produce 100% of the DCI-P3 color space. This should yield a display that is really great looking. Another benefit to go along with the improved looks is better power management, which LG says will be 30% more efficient than the display used in last year’s LG G6.
Along with the hardware improvements, LG is planning to change the aspect ratio to 19.5:9 which will make it a tall, skinny display. At least part of that extra height will be used to provide room for a notch, a design element sweeping through the industry right now. Meanwhile, LG plans to shrink the bottom bezel even more compared to the predecessor device. Some screenshots of the LG G7 software also shows users will be able to configure the screen to use the notch or they can have the top banner stretch across the display – incorporating the notch in the process – in a manner consistent with displays to date.
Since LG is releasing such detailed information about the technology going into their new device, we suspect an official launch date may not be far away.
