LG G7 ThinQ will have a Super Bright 6.1-inch display
While the LG G7 ThinQ is not official yet, LG just revealed what would surely be one of the phone's key stand-out features. The company's next flagship phone will be equipped with a Super Bright display, as LG calls it. And it is a fitting name indeed, seeing that the panel can hit 1,000 nits of brightness, which is impressive for a smartphone – and almost double the brightness output compared to the G6 and the V30.

Having this extra brightness is beneficial in outdoor light conditions as it makes the screen easier to see under the sun. At the same time, power consumption has been reduced by as much as 30 percent compared to last year's LG G6, the company highlights.

The screen will also have a notch, judging by the image accompanying the press release. This doesn't come as a surprise given the LG G7 leaks we've had over the past few weeks. However, it may be possible to "hide" the notch by applying a black background to it, as it is seen in the second screenshot. 

LG chose to stick with IPS LCD technology for the LG G7 ThinQ and its Super Bright display. The panel measures 6.1 inches in diagonal and has a resolution of 3120 by 1440 for a 19.5 to 9 aspect ratio. In other words, the screen will be even taller than the one we had on the G6. 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space is covered by the G7's display, which is a nerdy way of saying that it can technically deliver brighter, prettier colors. Power users are given the freedom to choose between six display modes and fine-tune color balance to their preferences. 

That's all the official information LG passed along today, but rumors have many of the remaining blanks filled up. It is said that the LG G7 will be powered by a Snapdragon 845, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Meanwhile, leaks indicate that the phone will come with dual main cameras, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, a power button on the right, and an extra button on the left for quick access to Google Assistant. The LG G7 ThinQ is set to be publicly announced on May 2 at an event in New York.
