LG has just revealed some of the upcoming new features of the G6 . It also confirmed some of the rumors that have been floating around about the company's next smartphone.
The LG G6 is expected to be officially unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Its release date, meanwhile, is set for April 7 according to Evan Blass who got hold of LG's planning materials. A few days before the major tech event, however, LG decided to jump the gun and share some of the details of the G6 to the world. Those details include the Square Camera and the Food Mode along with what it describes as the "ultimate user convenience and productivity with FullVision display."
According to Venture Beat, Blass was again proven right with the LG G6 having a 5.7-inch display. What Blass failed to mention was that the device will sport the QHD+ FullVision display with 2,880 x 1,440 pixel resolution. LG also revealed in the press release that the G6 will have the new mobile UX 6.0 and that it will have a rather uncommon 18:9 aspect ratio.
The expansive screen aspect ratio is responsible for the LG G6's ability to snap pictures and review them at the same time which is what the Square Camera mode is in a gist. The camera is one side while the captured image is on the other allowing the user to do two things at a time. Speaking of camera, the LG G6 also has the new Food Mode feature which takes pictures with high color quality and saturation. As its name implies, this feature is perfect for taking photos of food. The huge screen also allows users to see more while reading an e-book, playing mobile games or surfing the web aside from looking at pictures and watching videos.
