LG G6 To Be Announced On February 26 At Mobile World Congress 2017
LG has finally revealed the date of the press event for the upcoming G6 smartphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. The event will take place on February 26 at 12 PM, which clashes with other big press events at the MWC 2017.
We can expect to see the LG G6 unleashed at the event. This time around, LG is apparently dropping the modular design and going after enhancement in the overall quality of the smartphone. We're interested in perceiving what they have at the top of the preference list for quality improvement.
Various reports about the upcoming LG G6 talk about the rumoured 1440 x 2880 pixels 564ppi display. Even LG could be seen boasting the display in one of the teasers of the G6. The display comes with 2:1 aspect ratio instead of the standard 16:9 ratio. Interestingly, the 2:1 aspect ratio is gradually gaining footing in the video industry. The 2013 Netflix show "House of Cards" and last year's "Stranger Things" were featured in 2:1 aspect ratio.
LG believes that 2:1 aspect ratio allows more frame for the picture. The company even made the similar claim with the media invite graphics, which states that 18:9 ratio allowed better display of fireworks inside the image. Even the invite slogan - "See More, Play More" emphasizes on the same thought. Given that the 2:1 aspect ratio plays well on the 5.7-inch screen of LG G6, we would like to see how LG tackles the bezel region and increment the screen-to-body proportion.
Earlier, LG teased the reliability of battery used on the G6 that packs in heat diffusion piping within. Even in the media invite, LG affirms that the G6 will be subjected to accurate quality tests - well beyond what's required by the industry benchmarks. These claims by LG are nothing less than a dig on Samsung's infamous Note7 that succumbed to discontinuation due to serious battery issues.
LG is also expected to present an upgraded AI assistant, similar to Siri and Cortana. AI assistants are in demand nowadays, which is why even Samsung is rumored to be working on its own AI assistant dubbed as Bixby.
More information will unfold about the LG G6 in the coming days, stay tuned with us for timely updates.
