LG G7 ThinQ 6.1-Inch Display Delivers Punchy 1000-NIT Brightness With Notch Control

We talked a bit yesterday about leaked details on the forthcoming LG Android smartphone flagship called the LG G7 ThinQ. As you might imagine, LG was none too happy about that leak and decided to give up all the official details on perhaps the most interesting part of the smartphone, the super bright display. LG says that display allows "stunning display quality" while reducing power consumption. That means bright and vivid images while providing better battery life for users.

The screen will be a 6.1-inch QHD+ unit with 3120 x 1440 resolution rated for maximum brightness of 1000 nits. LG says that the tech specs of the display make it the brightest and most vibrant smartphone display on the market. That brightness also means that the phone display is easy to view in most lighting conditions, particularly under bright sunlight outdoors.

The power miserly design of the display means that power consumption is reduced as much as 30% compared to the LG G6 that preceded the G7. One aspect of the screen that makes the smartphone more comfortable to hold is the ergonomic curve design and the display is covered with curved tempered glass. Screen aspect ratio for the display is 19.5:1 FullVision compared to the LG G6's 18:9 FullVision display.

LG also notes that the display has a 50% slimmer bottom bezel than the G6. LG's Super Bright Display tech covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and has six different screen color settings. The six settings include Auto, Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game, and Expert. Auto mode can analyze the content on the phone and choose optimized display settings to save battery power. Individual control over each RGB color level option is also offered to allow users to fine-tune the screen to their liking.

The notch on the display is something that some Android fans might not appreciate. That said, as our shot above here shows, in one of the settings menus for the display there a controls to hide the notch if you like, and you can even trim the shape of the top bezel area to maximize a bit more of the panel. Expect more details on the phone (and our full review forthcoming) on May 2nd, when the LG G7 ThinQ is finally officially launched.
