Leaks reveal that the LG G7 will come with a RGBW panel along with a notch


The LG G series has always been LG’s flagship line that showcases the company’s innovation. The LG G6 brought the ‘FullVision’ display, LG’s implementation of a bezel-less screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Now, we get more info on it’s successor, the LG G7.

The major change expected is the adoption of a new display technology. The LG G7 is said to include a M+ LCD display, which is an RGBW screen that is extremely efficient. It reportedly uses 35% less power due to the inclusion of dedicated white pixels. This if true, should considerably increase battery life on the G7. The display panel will measure 6-inches diagonally and sport a 19:9 aspect ratio.

It will carry a glass on glass design similar to the LG G6. Following the trend of 2018 smartphones, the LG G7 will come with a notch at the top of the display flanked by a tiny bottom chin. The notch will carry the front facing camera, sensors etc and will not include any fancy 3D mapping technology like the iPhone X.

The LG G6 used an older Snapdragon 821 SoC when it launched but LG is not making the same mistake this time around. The LG G7 will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC and will come in 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB RAM-ROM variants.

As for optics, a dual 16MP setup is expected on the rear with f/1.5 aperture. The smartphone is expected to launch in May.
