LG will only use OLED screens in the V series
The company wants to reserve the OLED panels for its most innovative smartphones of the V series

The LG G7 ThinQ was announced on May 2 with an M + LCD panel, which was quite surprising since its latest LG V30 flagship smartphone came with an OLED panel.

LG recently explained to AndroidHeadlines that the company wants to reserve OLED panels for their "most innovative" smartphones of the V series.

According to LG, the fact that OLED technology is more expensive than LCD technology is not the only reason since the new M + LCD technology of the G7 ThinQ is still "quite expensive".

In contrast, the reason why LG has decided to use an LCD panel in the G7 ThinQ is because the G series is more conventional than the V series. The company wants to include more premium features in the V series.

The next smartphones in the LG V series, such as the rumored V35 ThinQ and the V40, will be in the high range of star smartphones, with a price that is closer to $ 1,000. On the other hand, the G series is in a lower step of the high range, with a price closer to $ 700.

LG has also explained that it is capable of using new LCD technologies because it is one of the few manufacturers that has the ability to manufacture the different components it uses in its devices.

With the G7, LG aims to show that the LCD is not dead, unlike the opinions of some users. LG Display is using the same panels for the G7 as those of its latest LCD TVs announced at CES in January.

The G7 ThinQ has a 6-inch M + LCD screen with Quad HD + resolution (3120 × 1440) and an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. The screen has a "Super Brightness" mode that can reach up to 1000 nits, although this mode can only be activated for three minutes to avoid overheating.

The LCD M + uses an RGBW matrix with extra white pixels, which allows the screen to reach the figure of 1000 nits at the cost of lower effective resolution and lower contrast.
