When LG is gearing up to launch a new flagship smartphone, it typically drops teasers and announcements for features of the new device in the weeks leading up to its reveal. Today LG posted just such a teaser for the LG G6.
LG today shared some details of the LG G6’s FullVision display, which is a 5.7-inch 2880x1440 panel with an 18:9 aspect ratio. LG touts that that taller display will enable users to see more info while browsing the web or reading books, but LG also revealed some of the special features that it’s cooked up for the G6’s screen.
The LG UX 6.0 on the LG G6 will include Square Camera, a feature that’ll divide the screen into two equal 1:1 halves. This will let users capture photos in the 1:1 format, which LG points out is popular on social networks like Instagram, and then quickly review the photo on the other half of the display.
LG also touts that the G6 will have a Food Mode that’ll “deliver high color quality and saturation ideal for, well, food.” A quick GIF creation tool will help you create GIFs by combining anywhere between 2 and 100 pictures.
The G6 will offer improved multi-tasking features, too. For example, you can type a memo on one side of the screen while browsing the web on the other, or use a single app to get new features when the screen is horizontal, like how the calendar app will show a calendar on the left half of the screen and a schedule on the right.
LG says that the G6 includes a feature that’ll help you view 16:9 content on the phone’s 18:9 screen.
Finally, while LG doesn’t specifically mention this in its announcement, the screenshot shared by LG suggests that the G6’s display will have rounded corners rather than square corners like most other phones.
The LG G6 will make its official debut on February 26. Are you looking forward to the G6 and its tall 18:9 screen?
