LG is gearing up for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event next month, which is when the tech giant is expected to unveil its G6 smartphone. The company shared new information at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
At the CES event earlier this month, which was once again held in Las Vegas, Nevada, LG Display announced that the smartphone will have the first QHD LCD display panel.
"QHD is expected to maximize users' experience and value by providing ultra-high definition, differentiating from all other mobile display panels," LG Display's executive director Kim Byung-koo for the mobile division revealed.
The device will have a 5.7-inch QHD LCD display. Due to the 18:9 ratio on the 5.7-inch display, the G6 will have better resolution than most 5.7-inch smartphones in the market. It is to be noted that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6, which has 5.7 inches, has only a ratio of 16:9. All of this will be featured in a thin frame, which will be 1-mm thick. Its frame will have 0.2-mm bezels and 0.54-mm thickness on the bottom.
Reports say that videos about the upcoming device have been teased. The LG G6 will reportedly be a slightly larger unit, but will still be a portable device. It boasts a one-hand usability, a powerful camera, and water proofing. Furthermore, a touch sensor will also be added to the insides of the display. LG believes that the G6 caters to tech-savvy consumers' needs. Reports say that LG showed a number of customers voicing out their tech concerns and desires, and, based on its teasers, it seems like the tech giant has developed the smartphone according to that list.
The MWC will take place in Barcelona from Feb. 27 to March 2. More updates on the LG G6 are expected to roll out after the event.
