LG G6 Unveils in Hong Kong
Unprecedented 18:9 FullVision® Display Tailored to Fit in One-Hand
World’s first phone supporting both Dolby Vision™ and HDR10
The Big Screen That Actually Fits in Your Hand
Bigger screen doesn’t always mean bigger phone. LG provides cinematic viewing experience by pioneering an 18:9 screen aspect ratio and equipping 5.7-inch QHD+ FullVision® display in a 5.2-inch smartphone body. With the new screen ratio, the G6 can fit comfortably in one hand and provide a portable big screen experience without the inconvenience of a cumbersome phone. Sculpted from glass and aluminum, the metal frame that wraps around the perimeter of the phone imparts solidity in style with a soft matte finish. The back is perfectly flat, minimizing the risk of damaging the camera and enhance overall aesthetics.
Complimented by narrow bezels, the upper bezel is minimized by rearranging the camera and sensor in a row on the front upper side. The rounded corners of both the body and display not only unify the design but also disperse the impact if the phone is dropped.

Square Camera divides the 18:9 ratio display into two identical squares, users can take pictures in 1:1 ratio in one window, while checking, editing and uploading pictures, to social media platforms, such as Instagram and Snapchat, in another window immediately after shooting. Users can simply view their recent photos in the same window, saving all the hassle when switching back and forth from the album to the camera.
What’s more, users can create GIFs by combining between 2 and 100 photos from the gallery to get more “Likes” on social media!

With dual 13MP rear cameras, including a 125-degree lens on the wide angle, the G6 captures panoramic shots that regular phones cameras can’t. The G6 also 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. The G6 also comes with an expanded 100-degree field of view with its 5MP front camera - no one will be left out in a wefie!
With the IP68 water and dust resistance specifications and the durability proved by passing the MIL-STD-810G U.S. military transit drop test, LG G6 is dependable even when the going gets rough. To ensure safety, G6 has used a proprietary technology that dissipates heat via internal heat pipe and aluminum frame. And to further disperse heat inside the unit, LG engineers positioned the components most prone to overheating as far from each other as possible.
The LG G6 has Google Assistant built-in to facilitate users’ everyday tasks. With the self-learning ability, it provides personalized suggestions based on users’ habits, including past appointments and locations.
