The LG G7 will have IPS screen to reduce costs

The South Korean company has not yet officially presented the LG G7, a terminal that we know was called for review by LG Electronics’ own CEO and that in principle it should be announced sometime in May or June.

Although there is no information from official sources have been producing different leaks that have not been limited to collect their possible specifications but have even shown on video the possible final appearance of the smartphone.

In principle, the idea of a full-screen finish and a notch at the top makes sense, especially since this format seems to have become the industry’s new standard, although it has not yet been confirmed by LG and could be the initial design that It was ruled out by the South Korean.

Among all the tangle of rumors and alleged leaks that have been gathering around this terminal, we find an interesting prediction from several market analysts who say that the LG G7 will have an IPS screen, that is, it will not have an OLED screen.

The decision to use said panel instead of an OLED as they did with the LG V30 would have a simple but important justification; reduce the production costs of the terminal, since IPS panels are much cheaper.

If this ends up confirming the next LG range top smartphone should be a little cheaper than their direct rivals equipped with OLED panels, although this does not mean that it will work a miracle and that the terminal will be affordable, something normal since at the end of the day we are talking about a model that will compete with the Samsung Galaxy S9.

  • IPS MLCD + screen (35% less consumption) of 6 inches in 19: 9 format and resolution of 3,120 x 1,440 pixels.
