Meet The Sleek LG G6 Smartphone, Coming With A Large FullVision Display


LG Electronics today officially unveiled the LG G6 smartphone, the newest smartphone that features a new display format complimented by a cinematic-like viewing experience, a 18:9 screen to body ratio, wide angle camera and more.



The G6 comes with a 5.7-inch QHD+ (2,880 x 1,440 resolution) FullVision display, and for the first time ever in a smartphone, an 18:9 screen aspect ratio. Compared to conventional 16:9 aspect ratio displays, the 18:9 format offers more viewing space and a different experince when playing games. By increasing the height of the screen rather than stretching it diagonally, LG has created a phone with very manageable width that doesn't sacrifice the ability to display a lot of content at once. The smartphone is dominated by this screen, with the small bezels allowing 80 percent of the front of the device to be given over to the display.

Sculpted from aluminum and glass, which comes in black and platinum, the G6 features a minimalist design that's sleek all-round and smooth to the touch. The metal frame that wraps around the perimeter of the phone and the back is perfectly flat, with no camera bump to avoid or protect. Complimented by narrow bezels, the upper bezel was minimized by rearranging the camera, sensor and speaker in a row on the front upper side. The rounded corners of both the body and display not only unify the design but also disperse the impact if the phone is dropped.

Even with the large screen featured on the G6, the smartphone is easy to hold and fits in one hand.

The G6 is the first smartphone to feature Dolby Vision technology. Not only does it support Dolby Vision, the G6 also supports HDR 10, both of which are standards for High Dynamic Range (HDR).

With the G6, you don't need to ask people in the picture to reposition, cram together or find another place to stand in order to get everything in, simply choose between standard and wide angle settings. With dual 13MP rear cameras, including a 125-degree lens on the wide angle, the G6 captures panoramic shots that regular phone cameras can't. It offers seamless transitions when zooming in and out between the wide-angle and standard camera lenses even during 4K video capture. The G6 also comes with an expanded 100-degree field of view with its 5MP front camera, which means users can take selfies without the need for a selfie stick. Plus, the wide angle camera reduces edge distortion.

To view recent selfies, wide angle pictures and ones in the new Square Camera Mode, users don't need to open their gallery. Instead, users can view photos in one window via film mode. Not only does the G6 provide a Square Camera function which divides the 18:9 ratio display into two identical squares, the G6 can also take perfectly square photos in 1:1 ratio. Regardless of ratio selected (18:9, 16:9, 4:3, 1:1), users can take pictures in one window, while checking, editing and uploading pictures in another window immediately after shooting. What's more, users can also create GIFs by combining between 2 and 100 photos from the gallery.

The G6 can go just about anywhere without worry thanks to its IP68 water and dust resistance that makes it safe to be used in up to 1.5 meters of water for as long as 30 minutes.

LG says that the G6 not only meets international testing standards but also endures further tests for high temperatures and nail penetration and uses a proprietary technology that dissipates heat via an internal heat pipe, the first in an LG smartphone. To further disperse heat inside the unit, LG engineers positioned the components most prone to overheating as far from each other as possible.

The G6 has Google Assistant built-in and LG has worked with Google to make sure the Google Assistant experience is great right out of the box. It works with LG apps, empowering users to get fast answers, manage everyday tasks, enjoy music and videos and search the G6 quickly.

Pricing and availability for the G6 hasn't been announced.
