Poor Photoshop Job? LG B Picture Under Scrutiny

LG B Screen Photoshop
Earlier today, Phandroid got an exclusive look at a new LG device that is extremely compelling with its bright IPS display. The phone’s slimmer than the iPhone 4 and got a display that completely owns the Galaxy S’ Super AMOLED and iPhone Retina Display.

But, there’s something really odd about this mysterious LG tipster’s picture comparing the LG B’s new display to the Samsung Galaxy S and Apple iPhone 4. Why does the LG B have a copied Galaxy S screen? If it isn’t copied, why in the heck is the LG B running Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 from Android 2.1?

I’ve reached out to Phandroid for a comment and they kindly assured me that the picture was not modified. But, I’m a little peeved by the picture still.

Here are the problems with the picture:

  • The LG B is running TouchWiz 3.0 — a themed Android build from Samsung not LG. It’s really too suspicious.
  • The LG B’s screenshot is a direct pixel-to-pixel copy with added brightness

Check out the picture above and tell us what you think in the comments. Is this thing Photoshopped? Just a copy of the Galaxy S’ screen pasted over the LG B with a basic Photoshop filter ┬áto add brightness to the LG or subtract from the other two?

LG did come out and publicly acknowledge the phone’s existence on Twitter, but that certainly doesn’t mean this picture is not Photoshopped.

    Very true. And how come nobody else has heard of or gotten their hands on this so called LG B???
    Also Just because it’s brighter does not make it better then super amoled. It may be brighter, but amoled still does the best and most vibrant DIRECT color. It also lied in the power wattage specs if anyone looked. It says that this so called B uses 0% power displaying black. Only Amoled can do that cause only amoled can display black. Lcd can display realy dark gray which would still consume a small amount of power. And currently the Galaxy S2 is the thinnest smartphone around.
    Bottom line, even if it’s true and it is the brightest because Lg did show off that 700 nit brightness nova display, it’s still an lcd and it is yes brighter, but not the most vibrant, direct or best viewable screen. Just bright and it does display better whites.
