The key features of the LG G6 are:
Excellent viewing experience – One of the most important aspect that users consider when deciding on a smartphone is the display quality it offers, that majorly dictates how their overall experience with the phone will be. LG G6 flaunts 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. Compared to conventional 16:9 aspect ratio displays, the 18:9 format offers more viewing space and a more immersive experience when streaming videos and playing games.
More to See, Less to Hold– The seamless design which offers a slim width, rounded display, flat camera and a metal frame in 3 colors are some of the other features that ensure one-handed usage, secured grip, increased speed and accuracy, premium feel, manageability while outdoors, pocket-ability and durability. Complimented by narrow bezels, the upper bezel is minimized by rearranging the camera, sensor and speaker in a row on the front upper side. The rounded corners of both the body and display not only unify the design but also dispersing the impact if the phone is dropped. The new UI 6.0 with control functions located at the bottom of the screen allows for more convenient single-handed operation.
In fact, ergonomics research teams led by Dr. Andris Freivalds at Pennsylvania State University and Dr. Ji Yong-gu at Yonsei University tested the LG G6 for stability when holding the phone, comfort in various postures and actions, as well as muscle fatigue when using the smartphone for long periods. The LG G6 received the highest marks in all test categories.
Transform Your Mobile Viewing Experience with Dolby Vision- The LG G6 is the first smart phone to feature Dolby Vision technology which supports HDR 10, both of which are standards for High Dynamic Range (HDR). With this upgrade, the picture quality is enhanced with the colors being both dark and brighter than ever before, revealing greater detail for a truly immersive viewing experience. A special treat for the consumers who love to access content online has been introduced in the smartphone. HDR content from Netflix and Amazon can now be watched on the G6 in stunning HDR quality. Amazon will also increasingly create 18:9 content for a cinematic viewing experience on the 18:9 QHD+ display.
Get More In, Leave Nothing Out –The G6 comes with a dual wide angle camera to ensure that your clicking experience is a pure delight. G6’s 5MP front camera covers a wide range of 100 degrees for more inclusive selfies. Plus, the wide angle camera reduces edge distortion, which makes for more natural images. Its 13 MP rear camera covers 125 degrees lens on the wide angle to capture panoramic shots that regular phones cameras can’t. The G6 delivers an outstanding and unique camera experience by creating seamless transitions when zooming in and out between the wide-angle and standard camera lenses even during 4K video capture.
Square Up and Share –And to view selfies, wefies, wide angle pictures and even the ones in the new Square Camera Mode, recent LG G6 photos appear in one window in film mode which means users don’t need to move to their gallery to review them. The G6 provides a Square Camera function which divides the 18:9 ratio display into two identical squares. The LG G6 can also take perfectly square photos in 1:1 ratio, ideal for Instagram, Snapchat and other social media apps. Users can also choose other ratios, such as 4:3, 16:9 and 18:9. Users can also take pictures in 1:1 ratio in one window, while checking, editing and uploading pictures in another window immediately after shooting. What’s more, users can create GIFs by combining between 2 and 100 photos from the gallery.
Built for the Unexpected –The G6 is the top notch in its league when it comes to reliability. It is durable, water and dust-resistant and battery safe. The IP68 water and dust resistance makes it safe to be immersed in up to 1.5 meters of water for as long as 30 minutes. While full screen with glass and minimal bezel is prone to breakages, G6 has passed MIL-STD 810G tests—26 different angle drop tests from chest height. It supports QC 3.0, enabling users to charge up their phones in less than an hour.
Google Assistant, now at your service –The smartphone has built-in Google Assistant that works seamlessly and intuitively with LG apps, empowering users to get fast answers, manage everyday tasks, enjoy the best music and videos and search the G6 more quickly and efficiently than ever.
3 variants (64 GB) are available in black, white & platinum priced at 55,000/-.
