Future iPhone 6.1 β€³ should use an LCD panel (with cutout) similar to the LG G7

We are already in May, which means that the rumored machine for the new wave of iPhones is finally starting to gain traction and will soon be in full swing (or not).

If nothing changes much until September, we already have an idea of ​​the scenario that we will see in the presentation of the new smartphones from Apple, with two models (a successor to the iPhone X and a β€œPlus” version of it, with 6.5 β€³) top of the line and one β€œEntry”, with similar design and 6.1 β€³ screen. Now even more information is emerging about this mysterious third model.

According to the newspaper BusinessKorea, Apple may be planning to equip its future cheaper iPhone (that is, if the SE really leaves the scene) with an MLCD + screen, similar to the one used by LG in its new G7 ThinQ.

LG G7 ThinQ

The panel, which naturally would have the cutout that should become standard on iPhones going forward, differs from the traditional LCD IPS in that it brings a white sub-pixel in addition to the usual blue, red and green; this provides greater color accuracy, and the technology is more economical for the battery.

The biggest advantage of MLCD +, however, is the improved display brightness. To give you an idea, the OLED panel of the iPhone X has a maximum brightness of 804 nits, while the LG G7 ThinQ goes up to 1,000 nits – even so, the South Korean is calling the attraction Super Bright Display (Super Bright Screen).

It is not yet known whether LG itself will be the manufacturer of these panels for Apple, but this is a likely hypothesis, considering that the Asian giant is one of the only companies in the world that work with such technology.
