    Rumour Apple to use LG G7 LCD tech in 2018 iPhone.png

    9to5 Mac reports today that according to a report from Business Korea, Apple plans to use LG’s new technology for its forthcoming LCD iPhone. Patently Apple already reported this as a possibility earlier in the week, and this latest report would appear to back that up.

    LG’s new technology, MLCD+, was developed primarily for LG’s newly announced G7 ThinQ smartphone. The technology adds a fourth, white, subpixel to the usual three red, green, and blue subpixels. Adding the white subpixel helps to boost pixel brightness, and thus makes the display brighter as well, while using 30% less power than the conventional IPS LCD display. It’s no surprise, therefore, that LG calls the G7 ThinQ’s display “Super Bright.”

    MLCD+ also supports the entire DCI-P3 colour gamut that the iPhone X OLED display is capable of using, and which is usually only available on 4K televisions.

    Business Korea is not always accurate when it comes to news about Apple’s forthcoming products, but this story certainly has a ring of authenticity about it.
