I'll have an expansive 6.1-inch screen, larger than the 5.7-inch LG G6, and a full-screen design with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 and QuadHD + resolution, according to LG in a press release.

LG G7 at 1,000 nits of brightness
The LG G7 ThinQ screen will be big and bright, reaching 1,000 nits of brightness, compared to the normal 600 nits we usually see on LG smartphones.
This is going to make the screen of your smartphone easier to see in direct sunlight, where the fight for more brightness is a very real problem.
"LG G7 ThinQ allows users the convenience of operating the phone in almost any lighting condition, especially under bright sunlight," says LG.
As impressive as 1000 on a smartphone, South Korea's LG neighbor, Samsung, has surpassed this number with the recent Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus in more than 1,1000 nits.
LG is promising that its technology maintains rich, natural color tones, even maximum brightness, and covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. In automatic mode, it can be adapted between six different screen configurations.
LG G7 LCD on OLED
LG chose to use LCD screen technology in G7 ThinQ to achieve its Super Bright Display and its peak brightness of 1,000 nits.
That's the opposite of the AMOLED screen trend that's popular on phones right now, all capable of deep blacks and energy saving capabilities. Even the LG V30 and the LG 30S ThinQ have OLED displays.
But LG touts its LCD technology as a way to achieve maximum maximum brightness in an energy efficient manner. Reduce energy consumption by up to 30% compared to the LG G6, according to the company.
We'll see what it looks like on May 2, when the official presentation of the phone occurs.
