In the framework of a special press conference in anticipation of the 2017 MWC, LG introduced its new flagship smartphone LG G6. The novelty is characterized by a large 5.7-inch display, waterproof casing and dual 13-megapixel camera.
After last year’s bold announcement of the modular LG G5, this time the Koreans rejected the idea of all sorts of add-ons for high-end smartphone. LG G6 was an all-metal body and large display, which the company called FullVision. The display is 5.7 inches, a resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels (564 ppi) aspect ratio– 18:9 (2:1).
In this regard, the ratio of the screen may appear problem: this format is used in the TV series and movies, but not apps or games. The application is specially optimized for the ratio of the display.
For LG G6 was established UI UX 6.0 (based on Android 7.0 “Nougat”), which allows you to perform various tasks in the two square Windows. Also the screen can be divided into two parts in a single application, for example, when running the camera in one half, you can view made the image striking the lens at a new target.
Interestingly, the device is comparable in size with smartphones with a screen diagonal of 5.2 inches (aspect ratio 16:9 display). The width of the smartphone LG G6 is 71,9 mm, which is only 2 mm wider, than a smartphone with a 5.2 inch display. However, the screen grew considerably in height, and this means that you can use it with one hand very problematic.
LG G6 dual rear camera: 13-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization and wide angle lens (71 degrees) aperture F/1.8 and a 13-megapixel sensor with ultra-wide angle lens (125 degrees) aperture F/2.8. Camera equipped with laser autofocus and led flash. Front camera resolution is only 5 megapixels, the lens aperture – F/2.2.
LG G6 installed tetrahydric processor of the previous generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 (MSM8996) with a clock frequency of 2.35 GHz and graphics Adreno 530, 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal memory. Will be a version with one SIM-card and a slot for memory cards microSD and dual-SIM smartphone with a combined slot.
The equipment also includes a fingerprint sensor, the same DAC as the LG V20, modules Wi-Fi (802.11 a, b, g, n, ac), 4.2 Bluetooth LE, GPS, NFC, USB type-C.
The battery is not removable, its capacity is only 3300 mAh. There is support for fast-charging technology Quick Charge 3.0, which allows you to charge the phone for 96 minutes and top-up charge in half in 32 minutes.
The device is presented in three colors: Mystic white, platinum Ice and Astro black, Jet Black resembles the iPhone 7. On sale LG G6 will arrive in March, price not yet reported.
