Korean report suggests this year’s LCD iPhone will borrow advanced display tech from LG G7 ThinQ

Apple’s 2018 iPhone line-up is widely expected to include a 6-inch/6.1-inch model with a similar design to the iPhone X but using a cheaper LCD display to target a $7-800 price.

Patently Apple speculated a few days ago that Apple might use a new form of LCD technology developed by LG, and a supply-chain report appears to lend weight to this idea...

Known as MLCD+, it was developed by LG for use in its recently-announced G7 ThinQ smartphone.

Conventional LCD pixels comprise three subpixels, one each of red, green and blue. By mixing and matching these, any color can be displayed. MLCD+ adds a fourth subpixel, which is white. This is used to boost the brightness of the pixel, providing a brighter screen.

Additionally, it supports the full DCI-P3 color gamut offered by the OLED screen used on the iPhone X. This is a wide color gamut usually limited to 4K TVs.

Business Korea today cites supply-chain sources in suggesting that Apple does indeed plan to use LG’s display.

According to the smartphone industry on May 9, Apple is expected to load its next 6.1-inch iPhone model with an MLCD+ display which LG used in its G7 ThinQ smartphone. The MLCD+ display realizes a bright screen with less power consumption than the IPS LCD display.

LG named the display of the G7 ThinQ “Super Bright Display.” Its color reproduction rate is 100% on the DCI-P3 basis which expresses delicate colors close to nature even on bright screens. At the same brightness, the G7 ThinQ consumes 30% less power compared to the previous G6 model loaded with an LCD display.
