LG G7 ThinQ Will Have A ‘Super Bright’ 6.1 inch LCD Display
Last year, leading up to the LG V30 launch, the company teased a few features of the smartphone. The company has resumed its practices with the LG G7 ThinQ launch just a few days away. LG has confirmed what was being rumoured for a long time regarding the display. The LG G7 ThinQ will have an LCD display, just like the LG G6 did.
The company has confirmed that the LG G7 ThinQ will have a 6.1 inch LCD display with a resolution of 3210 x 1440 px. The highlight of the LG G7 ThinQ, according to the company, will be the brightness of the display. The ‘Super Bright Display’ goes up to 1000 nits while consuming up to 30% less power than the LG G6’s. Apparently, the screen also covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 colour gamut. The specifications mentioned are not the best in class or nothing we haven’t seen before. However, if LG is talking up the display of the G7 ThinQ so much, then there has to be something in the execution that LG has done differently. Nothing is certain until the smartphone launches on May 2nd.
The LG G7 ThinQ will have a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, same as the iPhone X and taller than the 18:9 G6. This taller aspect ratio is the result of a notch on the display which has become quite common for Android smartphones in 2018. LG has also claimed that the chin of the G7 ThinQ is about 50% smaller than the chin on the G6. However, it still won’t be as thin as the iPhone X and would be comparable to the OnePlus 6 (which also has a notch).
Before the LG V30 launch, LG talked a lot about its shift to an OLED display. However, the display failed to compare with the likes of Galaxy S8 and iPhone X. Furthermore, LG’s OLED technology was scrutinised on the Pixel 2 XL which has suffered a lot of display issues since its launch. Using an LCD panel for the G7 ThinQ also meant that LG could not curve the display from the bottom to remove the chin like Apple did. However, LG does talk about using curved tempered glass on the G7 ThinQ, though it doesn’t sound like the screen itself will curve, thanks to the use of an LCD panel instead of OLED.
The LG G7 ThinQ is just a few days away from its official launch and LG would be banking on the new flagship smartphone to help revive the flailing smartphone business of LG. The availability and pricing of the G7 ThinQ in India will be revealed soon after its global launch.
