LG G6 will sport a 5.7-inch screen
LG Display announced a new 5.7-inch LCD with the unusual aspect ratio of 18:9 and a QHD+ resolution, which the company says will be used in LG’s next flagship smartphone. Additionally, sources familiar with the development of LG’s new phone tells the emphasis of the new design will be on maximizing the screen-to-body ratio. LG’s choice to go taller with its next flagship could be a hint that the company has something else to add into the additional space.
With the focus placed on trimming away bezels, the 5.7-inch device from LG will likely feel much smaller than its size would initially suggest. The 6.4-inch Xiaomi Mi Mix is only slightly larger than an iPhone 7 Plus, and the LG G6 would probably rival smaller devices like the bezel-rich Sony Xperia XZ or LG’s 5.3-inch G5 . LG Display says the bezels required by its new panel are 10 percent smaller on the sides and 20 percent smaller at the top.
LG Display also claims to have improved power consumption by an impressive 30 percent. However, it doesn’t specify what baseline that’s compared to.
The company also notes a 10 percent improvement in transmittance, making for better outdoor visibility.
