LG G6, announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Well, LG is changing its own definition of “flagship” phone. It has been heard for last few months that LG’s flagship phones working for their success on standout features. The LG G3 introduced quad-HD displays, the G4 shipped with quirky leather backs, while last year’s G5 went with a modular design. For the G6, LG is focusing on cramming a large display in a small body. LG’s phone has come with the taller display. The screen display actually replaced the 16:9 display by a 2:1 display. It’s exactly two squares on top of each other.
The height of the screen is increased instead of stretching it diagonally that produced manageable width of phone that has not destroyed the ability to display a lot of content at once. The corners of display are rounded off. As the small bezels allows 80 percent of the front of the device to be given over to the display which makes it dominant.
The most striking physical feature of the G6 is its purely solid metal and glass construction. However, it isn’t too hefty at 7.9mm thick but it is strong. Another quality of LG G6 phone is it is water- and dust-resistant, rated at IP68. For making it incompatible the resolution set at 2880 x 1440 that is perfect with big stretched display which makes it lovely panel. Even though it’s not AMOLED, it delivers vivid colours and deep blacks. It’s the first phone with Dolby Vision support and like the dearly-departed Note 7, it’s HDR 10 enabled too.
LG G6 is feeling proud to bring a new camera technology to the world. You can see so many mobile app created for interesting photo format with two square-ish pictures to share what you have in front of you and a selfie. But LG implemented a Frontback feature into G6 named “Match Shot.” With this mode, you take a selfie, and you take a photo of what you’re looking at. It’s two perfect squares on top of each other. It’s basically Frontback. The standard camera has a 71-degree lens — which is about standard for most smartphone cameras — with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS. It also has PDAF (phase-detect auto focus). The feature adds four additional shooting modes: Snapshot, Grid Shot, Guide Shot and Match Shot. You can access the Square Camera through a dedicated app that’s preloaded on the phone, or as a shooting option in the regular camera app. G6, LG equipped with couple of 13MP cameras, one wide-angle (125° FOV), one ‘normal’ (71° FOV), despite of the traditional precedent 16MP+8MP setup of the G5 and V20.
