LG talks up the 'Super Bright' LCD on the upcoming G7 ThinQ


Not only is that extra big, it's also not an OLED like we saw on the V30. Based on the reports, the LG G7 ThinQ will sport sport a widescreen display with increased brightness levels.

The South Korean smartphone company has confirmed rumours that the device will feature a curved 6.1-inch FullVision display, bearing a 3120 x 1440 (QHD+) resolution and a super slim 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Brightness, however, is only one aspect of a great display, with another being how colors are reproduced. As expected, they are similar to the scores of other Snapdragon 845-powered devices like Galaxy S9, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, etc.

To help make the G7 ThinQ's display the "most vibrant", LG includes a setting that will let the user define the screen color. There are Auto, Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game, and Experts modes, with Expert offering the most control. And yes, there is a notch, practically confirmed by LG's own screenshot of the various screen mode options.

Additionally, the comparison photos also show that users will be able "hide" the display notch most likely through a setting found on the phone.
