The LG g6 promises to be this year’s major release from the Korean giant and will look to overturn bigger rivals like Apple and Samsung’s apple carts when they come up with their own offerings later this year. We already know a thing or two about the G6. We learned about a week ago that a stunning new feature had been added to the gamut of new features the LG G6 would have to offer. Apparently, the new phone will feature a new 18:9 display with a superb resolution of 2880×1440 pixels.
The LG G6 will come with a 5.7-inch screen with a QHD+ display, which LG claims will be the future of the smartphone display. Contrary to previous rumours, the 5.7-inch screen will be the standard size of the new phone and not a 5.6-inch one. The new panel of the phone will be slimmer, lighter and more manageable thanks to LG’s in-Touch technology. This new technology will manage to fuse the display and the touch panel matrices all-in-one body, making the LG G6 physical module eminently slim. LG has officially stated that the new phone will be less than 1mm in thickness. The new display ratio of 18:9 will boost the growing demand in bigger screens while the physical size is still retained. When compared to the standard 16:9 screen ratio, the 18:9 ratio will make the picture actually appear bigger due to a better compression ratio. Although it will not have any significant change in form or function, the horizontal and the vertical elements of the display will be markedly improved.
The LG G6 is also rumoured to sport reduced bezels, which while not rendering them completely extinct, definitely does away with the look. Sources suggest that the bezels are reduced by 20% on the top and by 10% on the corners of the new phone. Keep in mind that the bezel-free display is the flavour of the season. The Samsung galaxy S8 is said to sport a near bezel-less display while the iPhone 8 will look forward to ditching the bezel completely.
LG has also stated that the G6 will sport a better and a newly redesigned outdoor visibility factor; this will be the result of increased transmittance of the new phone. All this and still the LG G6 will still look to reduce the power consumption of the phone by a whopping 30%. The new 4200 mAh battery on the phone will power the phone and the battery consumption of the phone will probably be enough to exceed a day of use.
The LG G6 will have to succeed and do well for LG has reported a loss in the last quarter of last year. To overcome that upset, we believe that the media pundits and the PR machinery that LG has under its aegis will be put to full use while the production and manufacturing departments will work overtime. We are expecting that the G6 will be out at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February. We ask you to watch this space.
