LG G7 confirmed to be unveiled in late April, to hit store shelves in mid-May

The LG G7 or whatever name the company decides to use is expected to be the first LG smartphone to pack an M-LCD display, which is said to be 35% more energy efficient than a typical LCD panel.
The M-LCD manufacturing technique implies the addition of white pixels that emit light to existing RGB (red, green, blue) pixels, which is expected to greatly improve overall brightness. Unlike OLED panels, M-LCD costs are lower though LG expects it to offer the same level of efficiency and quality.
Furthermore, LG confirmed that the G7 will be priced reasonably since the company managed to reduce costs by using LCD panels instead of OLEDs. Other major improvements installed on the G7 include many AI-related features like those found on the ThinQ models.
Finally, the G7 is expected to include LG's first ever rear dual camera to feature an f.1/5 aperture for better and brighter pictures. The controversial notch will be included as well, along with a powerful Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM and either 64GB (G7) or 128GB (G7 Plus) internal memory.
- Display 6.1" 1440 x 3120 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Octa-core, 2800 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(20h talk time)

"The controversial notch will be included as well." Nah. "The first smartphone to pack an M-LCD display." New tech. Probably in semi-prototype stage. Nah. "The LG G7 or whatever name the company decides to use..." LG, please call it "LG X (Clone Edition)" to keep things honest and reasonable. And the slogan should be this: "We can no longer innovate, neither we care about what you think." P.S LG has deleted the post on Reddit in which it asked for opinions regarding the notch. Goes on to tell just how much LG cares about its customers and user feedback! My prayers be with you, LG. May your G7 fall right on its arse. 'Day...

I am really curious to see what this new MLCD display technology is all about.

I have never had a better phone than my former LG G2. Compact, big battery and great battery life (which are not the same thing), plastic, drop-resistant back, a great, energy-efficient, visible RGB notification LED, IR blaster, hardware-based double tap to wake and sleep. Then LG threw all these features away and chose to output mostly oversized garbage with pathetic battey life year after year.

1: how's ThinQ pronounced, "think" or " Thin Q" dumb name I'm. 2: It seems spinning off the phones will keep the MSRP up. The v30 hasn't depreciated too far. 3: Fix your damn front facing camera and battery life. And cheaper price sounds good in my book.
