LG G7 ThinQ notch: this is how you hide it

LG hasn't exactly officially admitted it, but it has practically confirmed it. Its next flagship, the LG G7 ThinQ, will have an iPhone X-esque notch.

LG G7 ThinQ Super Bright Display cranks up the pixels, controls

Our smartphones are mostly made up of screens, at least on the front. That's especially true with today's trend of nearly bezel-less displays. So it's only natural that smartphone makers put a great deal of effort into making and promoting their panels.

LG’s OLED production woes are bad news for Apple

Last year's iPhone X was the first OLED phone Apple ever released, and rumors claim that this year, the company is looking to release two more iPhones with OLED displays. Obviously, this second device means that Apple is going to need a lot more OLED panels, and as such, it's been looking to diversify its screen suppliers. Thus far, Apple has only relied on Samsung for its OLED panels, but for 2018, it's also been trying to bring LG Display on as well.
