mLCD +: All the secrets of the new iPhone X screen technology

Last week we told you about the rumor about the new technology that Apple could use on the screen of the new iPhone X. The new line of iPhone that we will see this year includes a new more affordable model with 6.1-inch screen.

Lg would be in charge of manufacturing this new screen that achieves a brightness far superior to the LCD screens that Apple has used so far in their iPhone. LG has been Apple's supplier for many years, so the rumor has many ballots to be real.

But, how do they improve and what are the differences between mLCD + and LCD? , we analyze it in this article. Do not miss it because that could be the screens of your future iPhone.

What is mLCD +?

In traditional LCD panels each pixel includes three sub-pixels, red, blue and green. The combination of these is what generates the desired tone. The mLCD + technology includes a sub-pixel plus white color that is responsible for brightening the image. In this way you can get screens with higher brightness that reach without problems the 1000 nits.

To achieve the targets on an LCD panel it is necessary that the light passes through the red, blue and green sub-pixels. After these combine to form the target, but around 60-70% of this light is blocked , which is compensated by an increase in the backlight, which implies a greater consumption.

The white sub-pixel avoids all this and thus achieves an improvement in efficiency. So the mLCD + screens consume less battery . Which in the current world is very important.

These characteristics of the mLCD + technology directly imply an improvement of the contrast , which will have a direct impact on the viewing of videos in HDR, something increasingly popular that YouTube has just incorporated .

Another important improvement is the possibility of including this type of screens in smartphones with very small frames . LG has included them in their latest smartphone, the LG G7 that has notch and very small frames.

But not all are improvements compared to the LDC screens. The addition of this extra sub-pixel makes each pixel occupy more space. Which means that the density of pixels per inch could be reduced . Although seeing the high density of pixels that are achieved today, is a minor problem.

What do you think of the new screen technology of the future iPhone?
