Key Features of LG’s G6 Smartphone:
- First Smartphone in the World to Feature 18:9 Display Format
The LG G6 comes with a 5.7-inch QHD+ (2,880 x 1,440 resolution) FullVision display, and for the first time ever in a smartphone, an 18:9 screen aspect ratio. Furthermore, despite the larger display format, the LG G6 comes in an ergonomic design that is optimal for usage with one hand. Sculpted from aluminum and glass, the G6 features a minimalist and sleek design smooth to the touch. The metal frame that is a soft matte finish, imparts solidity in style with a high gloss back is perfectly flat. The rounded corners of the G6 also disperse the impact if the phone is dropped.
- Elevate the Mobile Viewing Experience with Dolby Vision
The LG G6 now supports two High Dynamic Range (HDR) standards for viewers to get more out of cinematic contents available for smartphones. As the first smartphone to feature Dolby Vision technology, the LG G6 also supports HDR 10, both of which are standards for the picture quality technology that displays a wider range of color and luminosity.
- Dual 13MP Cameras with Wide Angle Lens to Capture all the Beauty
LG G6’s dual 13MP rear cameras, which boast a 125-degree wide angle lens, capture more in a shot that regular phones cannot achieve. The G6 also comes with an expanded 100-degree field of view with its 5MP front camera, which means users can take selfies or wefies without the need for a selfie stick. Plus, the camera reduces edge distortion, which makes for more natural-looking images.
- Square is the New Creative
The LG G6 smartphone offers a Square Camera Mode, which offers new exciting ways to create photos with the Snap shot, Match shot, Grid shot and Guide shot features.
Snap shot splits the screen into two, taking advantage of the screen’s 18:9 display which are essentially two squares. The upper half is a viewfinder while the bottom half lets users preview the photos after they take them for easy comparisons. Match shot allows users to get creative, matching disparate photos, such as the wings of a bird to the tail of an airplane.
With Grid shot, users can form a collage made up of four quadrants with photos and video contents. The mode eliminates the need for any third-party apps, and users can share the collages on their favorite social networks instantly.
Finally, the Guide shot is a smart and creative feature that matches the composition of a chosen image to act as a guide for the next shot. This is especially useful to snap a series of photos, such as striking a similar pose in different settings, or various cuisines shot in the same plating format.
With the Square Camera Mode, users can also take pictures in 1:1 ratio on one window while checking, editing and uploading pictures in another window immediately after shooting. They can even create animated GIF files by combining between 2 and 100 photos from the gallery in a loop.
By taking perfectly square photos in 1:1 ratio, the LG G6 is ideal for Instagram, Snapchat and other social media apps. Users can also choose other ratios, such as 4:3, 16:9 and 18:9 based on their preferences.
- Built for Durability
The LG G6 boasts IP68 water and dust resistance, which makes it protected up to 1.5 meters of water for as long as 30 minutes. Users can now worry less about accidental drops in water and spillages. The smartphone also endures tests for high temperatures and nail penetration, and uses a proprietary technology that dissipates heat via an internal heat pipe, the first in an LG smartphone.
- Everyday Tasks a Cinch with the Google Assistant
The LG G6 has Google Assistant built-in which works seamlessly with LG apps, empowering users to get fast answers, manage everyday tasks, enjoy the best music and videos and search the G6 quicker than ever. And with the remote after-service utilizing artificial intelligence, the more Google Assistant is used, the more personalized the user experience becomes.
