LG says the G7 ThinQ will pack a 6.1-inch display that can hit 1,000 nits

Just like it did leading up to the announcement of the G6, LG has decided to talk at length about some of the features we should expect to see in the upcoming G7 ThinQ. This time around, the South Korean company has confirmed that its next flagship smartphone will include a super bright 6.1-inch IPS LCD display that will be able to reach 1,000 nits.

At this point, there have been so many leaks of the G7 ThinQ that, at this point, LG is just confirming facts. First, the 6.1-inch display will feature a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, making it slightly taller than previous handsets from the company. Second,

And of course, LG boasts that since the screen can reach 1,000 nits, it will be the “the brightest and most vibrant display on the smartphone market today.” Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ can reach above 1,000 Nits, but the functionality is limited to when the phone is in direct sunlight and it cannot be directly activated by the user.

LG’s press release states that the G7 ThinQ’s QHD+ (3120 x 1440 resolution) display will be 30% more efficient than the G6’s, is capable of reproducing 100% of the DCI-P3 color space, and will have a slightly smaller bezel below the screen when compared to previous models.

To help make the G7 ThinQ’s display the “most vibrant,” LG includes a setting that will let the user define the screen color. As you can see from the photo below, there are presets for Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game, and Expert. There is also an Auto option and a slider that allows the user to manually control the display’s color temperature.

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

Look for additional coverage of the G7 ThinQ when LG officially announces the handset on May 2.

New Super Bright Display Allows Stunning Display Quality While Lowering Power Consumption

LG’s upcoming premium smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ, will be equipped with a brand new 6.1-inch display QHD+ (3120 x 1440 resolution) FullVision display that is rated at a maximum of 1,000 nit, making it the brightest and most vibrant display on the smartphone market today.

Powered by LG’s latest LCD technology Super Bright Display, the LG G7 ThinQ allows users the convenience of operating the phone in almost any lighting condition, notably under bright sunlight while reducing power consumption by as much as 30 percent than the LG G6.

Building on the well-received LG G6’s display-to-body ratio, the LG G7 ThinQ will be easy and comfortable to operate and hold in one hand, especially with the ergonomic and beautiful curved tempered glass. The previous 18:9 FullVision display of the LG G6 has also been enhanced on the LG G7 ThinQ with a new 19.5:9 FullVision screen ratio complemented by almost 50 percent slimmer bottom bezel than its predecessor.

Color tones on the LG G7 ThinQ will look rich and natural even under bright light courtesy of the newly developed Super Bright Display by LG that covers 100 percent of DCI-P3 color space. Additionally, the LG G7 ThinQ can automatically adapt to six screen color settings for different content such as Auto, Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game and Expert. Auto mode enables LG G7 ThinQ to automatically analyze current content, such as video, game, photo or web, and optimize display setting while reducing power consumption.

For power users that are looking for total control over their smartphone’s display, the LG G7 ThinQ allows users to fine-tune the screen by conveniently scrolling each RGB color level option while supporting modes are activated. LG has offered a similar feature with its camera in the past for shutterbugs, and it is doing the same for users desiring a higher-level degree of control with their displays.
