On May 2, LG is going to announce the G7 ThinQ, its newest flagship smartphone. Before that happens, though, the company is more than willing to tease out bits and pieces of the upcoming handset.
In an official announcement, by way of Android Central, LG has confirmed the G7 ThinQ will boast a 6.1-inch QHD+ IPS LCD display which will have a resolution of 3120×1440. In addition, the display will have a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits. That’s the brightest IPS LCD display to date. The OLED displays in the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8 can go brighter, but only if in direct sunlight.
The G7 ThinQ’s display will have an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 — the same as the iPhone X — to compensate for that notch, but future G7 ThinQ owners will be able to hide the notch. The FullVision display will have an even smaller bezel along the bottom when compared to the G6, and there will be six different screen settings to choose from: Auto, Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game, and Expert. Users will also be able to adjust the color temperature as well.
When it comes to other features of the LG G7 ThinQ, the rumor mill has helped a bit, giving us a hint that the G7 ThinQ will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The upcoming flagship will also reportedly have a dedicated physical button for Google Assistant.
So, sounds like the G7 ThinQ is going to have an impressive display, even if it isn’t an OLED panel. Would you have preferred the OLED display, though?
