LG G7 ThinQ new Second Screen menu leaks out: Rounded app corners & notch customization

A just-recently leaked real-life image of the LG G7 ThinQ spills the beans on the display submenu of the device's settings, not only once again revealing that you will be able to customize the display notch, but also tinker with the actual corners of the display.

Seems users will be allowed to go with either trendy rounded corners or more classical edgier ones, which are still slightly rounded, it would seem. 

Aside from that, it seems that the color of the display horns surrounding the notch will be user-customizable. A slew of color options are seemingly available outright and will apply to the home screen and the default apps, but we are unconvinced anything beyond black would look good in such a scenario. Change our mind, LG.

As a reminder, the LG G7 ThinQ will be unveiled next week, on May 2. You can check out all of its rumored features in our dedicated rumor review.

I can potentially live with unibrow management like this, however am worried about the burn in effects of oled screens when introduced in other phones.

It's clearly a better implementation of a notch. With LG's notch implementation all apps will work without any modifications needed to any apps. Here's looking at you Apple. Apples use of the notch requires their developers to support the notch in their apps. Not so for LG here or Android P coming down the pipe. As a matter of fact Apple is forcing it's developers to support the iPhone X notch, or your app will be rejected and it won't end up on the app store until it does have that support.

I know. I'm saying when other vendors that do have OLED have hidden notch methods there is going to be risk of burn in.

I used a lg v10. I say about that second screen experians. Not user friendly and hard use.

The floating bar on the V30 is much better. You can put it there very you want and it's very non intrusive. I didn't think I'd even use it but I use it all the time

Your opinion. I find the second screen of v10/v20 more useful and unique and it's instantly there. It is not hard to use and a great multitasking experience.

I think this is the best possible implementation of a notch. It should give a little additional real estate for apps while using the notch area for time/battery etc.

I've never owned a really good smart phone, and have always got by on basic ones, but now am in a position to buy one. I'm attracted to LG for its reputation of making mobiles with superb audio quality, and my friends V30 knocks me out, so am looking forward to trying this and replacing my personal music player at the same time. Two birds.....

I have the V30, it's really the best phone I've ever owned. Immeasurably better than the Samsung S7 Edge it replaced.

Brightest display for this dimming partial screen? Reminds me of LG prada3, Nova display 700 nits for black Optimus UI

I feel most people, myself included, will keep the notch-hiding e-bezel on permanently. Without the notch being visible, and now the top and bottom symmetrical, the whole phone looks much better.
