LG G6 has a very ‘hard to scratch’ glass and metal finish
LG is all set to announce its upcoming flagship, the LG G6 at Mobile World Congress towards the end of this month. Slowly and gradually, LG has been releasing information about the handset such as the 18:9 aspect ratio of the FullVision screen with a 1440 x 2880 resolution and an edge-to-edge display.
Today, the company shares some more information about the UI of the phone through a short video that highlights the advantages of using such a display as well as teases the new LG UX 6.0 with rounded corners. I'm glad that LG is working on its UI as the current UI doesn't look like it belongs to a new generation of phones. Here are the three areas LG highlights, sent through a press release. Of particular interest is the new multi tasking mode that splits the screen into two square areas as well as the camera mode that can let you shoot and preview images on the same screen.
A Differentiated Experience
The FullVision display in the LG G6 provides users with a new viewing experience. The large screen features an expanded top and bottom that allows users to view more information when surfing the web, or while reading e-books and provides a more immersive experience when users view videos or play games.
Enhanced Camera UX
The camera UX has been considerably enhanced thanks to the expansive 18:9 screen aspect ratio display in a way that increases the convenience and the fun. The expansive screen enables users to take and review photos simultaneously. LG UX 6.0 provides a Square Camera feature which divides the 18:9 display into two identical perfect squares. With this, users can shoot images in 1:1 format - a popular format on social media apps such as Instagram - and review them in the adjacent window.
There is also new shooting mode called Food Mode that delivers high color quality and saturation ideal for, well, food. Users can create GIF files by combining anywhere from 2 and 100 pictures in a loop.
The LG G6 takes advantage of the expansive 18:9 display in many ways. Open a call reception window next to the calendar app or the photo gallery at the same time as the message app. Multiple square photographs can be connected together and viewed as a Collage Wallpaper on the lock screen. Type a memo on one side while surfing the web on the other. Inside the calendar app, turning the G6 horizontally will display the calendar in the left window while a detailed schedule will appear on the right. The combinations are endless.
