LG has officially announced the LG G6 and this is one of the very first smartphones to break the 80% screen-to-body ratio. This gives the phone a slightly unusual, but pleasing, look with an 18:9 aspect ratio, in contrast to the more usual 16:9 aspect ratio.
So let’s take a look at everything that the LG G6 will offer:
FullVision Display and Dolby Vision
The 5.7-inch Quad HD+ FullVision display has a resolution of 1440×2880 pixels, equating to 564ppi, which is a very high pixel density indeed. The display works with Dolby Vision HDR content that can be found on Amazon Prime Video or Netflix.
Dolby Vision in general enhances the colour and contrast with four visual modes for different circumstances. Standard Mode gives a balance of power saving and video quality, while Cinematic Mode is perfect for dark environments with a close-to cinema feel recreated. Vivid Mode gives boosted colour richness, while Bright Mode is tuned to brightly lit environments.
LG G6 design
The LG G6 has an aluminium frame that is 7.9mm thick. This has been designed with rounded corners so that if the phone is dropped, the force of the impact is dispersed. The LG G6 has other durable characteristics being IP68 certified for water and dust resistance, along with LG testing against heat.
The fingerprint sensor is located on the back and this LG phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 2.35GHz processor with 4GB RAM. This is paired up with a 32GB internal memory and a microSD card slot that supports cards with a value of up to 2TB.
The LG G6 runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system and a high capacity 3,300mAh battery keeps the experience going, helped along by a special Game Battery Saver.
Square Camera Mode
The LG G6 has dual 13MP cameras sat side-by-side. One lens has a 125 degrees field of view while the other has a 78 degrees field of view. These two lenses let you zoom in and out and enjoy more advanced camera photography.
Square Camera Mode splits the screen to deliver a few unique effects. Match Shot blends two photos together, Guide Shot helps you recreate photo poses, Grid Shot creates a collage of photo and videos and finally Snap Shot splits the screen to show the photo you just captured while you are lining up the next shot.
The 5MP selfie/portrait camera has a wide angle lens with 100 degrees field of view.
