LG confirms G7 ThinQ display features, including 6.1-inch size and 1,000 nit brightness


Another feature of the LG G7 ThinQ has been confirmed.

LG today revealed that the G7 ThinQ will include a 6.1-inch “Super Bright Display” with a resolution of 3120×1440 and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Compared to the LG G6, the bottom bezel on the LG G7 ThinQ is nearly 50 percent smaller, and the display itself consumes up to 30 percent less power.

Also confirmed by LG is the fact that the G7 ThinQ will include a display notch. The screenshots shared by LG show that you will be able to hide the notch by turning the status bar black, though, so there will be some respite from the notch for folks that don’t care for it.

LG says that the G7 ThinQ will support a display brightness up to 1,000 nits. To compare, most other smartphones offer display brightness of 500 or 700 nits. And finally, the LG G7 ThinQ will have six display modes: Auto, Eco, Cinema, Sports, Game, and Expert.

The LG G7 ThinQ will be officially unveiled on May 2. It’s expected that the phone will boast a Snapdragon 845 processor, dual rear camera setup, and a button on the side of the phone dedicated to Google Assistant.

    Please LG, give us the Quad DAC, so we can enjoy the headphone jack before it goes completely extinct.

    I would give LG another chance but I’ll pass, both the V10 and V30 let me down. I was especially disappointed in the V30 which I was rooting for and couldn’t wait to get it once I saw the leaks. Yeah, it’s a GORGEOUS and light phone but it had too many issues. When I shot video at 1080P@60fps it would freeze once I finished recording and I lost a very important recording. I think that’s why they came out with a V30+ with the 6GB RAM, to hide the fact it needed it. The speaker were teenie, the screen brightness wasn’t that great; when you opened the app tray that apps looked pixelated from a couple seconds and the phone slowed down and the front facing cam was terrible. And the V10…it died suddenly on me with the screen issue it had, I couldn’t get a replacement and had to buy a new phone.

      Funny, I’ve never had any of those problems with the V20 or V30. The only issues I’ve had are UPDATES and the lack of fastboot commands.

      Second that. Absolutely astounding that the screen issues passed QA at LG on the V30. The black crush was absolutely horrific. Loved my V10 and V20 though, never had issues with them.

      That sucks to hear about your experience with the V30. my dad and I both got the V10 on launch. Mine boolooped within 18 months and was repaired for free by LG, it’s still got screen ghosting when its hot but still somehow working okay. My dad’s finally bootlooped back at the end of Feb or early march. He wants a V30+ but TMO seems to be out of stock. I didn’t realize it till recently but I’ve back waay off from actually using my V10 out of subconcious fear of impending heat-death//bootloop. I’m holding out for the next note and trying to convince him to do the same. He fell back to a Galaxy light which is utter crap so I told him to get a K30 when it comes out to help hold him over.

    Ugh that UI is still so bad. Sorry LG nope.

  • TheRealKingSen

    I take it that LG locks the bootloader on their phones?

  • Carl Grimes

    I want to like LG so bad! I still have a V20. I really hate the notch!

  • Jason

    Hey hey ho ho, that stupid notch has got to go. Hey hey ho ho

    This Phone will be a big success if it’s priced $300-400.
    It will be a failure if it’s price the usual $700-800.

    • riverhorse

      I wish. That processor, that size? $850-950

  • steadymobb

    I’m down with hiding the notch.

  • J.J.

    Still less than the note 8’s peak 1200 nits but still great. Brightness had been an issue with the lg phones i have owned
