Piece by piece, the puzzle that is LG's next flagship smartphone is coming together. LG Display announced on Tuesday in South Korea a new smartphone display with QHD+ resolution (1440 x 2880). It also confirmed that this will be the display used in LG's next flagship smartphone, which will be most likely called the LG G6.
The 5.7-inch LCD panel carries 564 pixels per inch for super-sharp images, all while delivering a more "immersive viewing experience" through its 18:9 aspect ratio. These proportions are designed to enhance the use of dual-screen multi-tasking, available on Android 7.0.
Furthermore, LG's inTOUCH technology makes the display extremely responsive, meaning that there's an indistinguishable delay between the moment the surface is touched and when the device responds to the input. LG also points out that the screen utilizes slimmer bezels, all while being extremely thin.
The new product will also feature improved outdoor visibility and will consume 30% less power. Sounds good to us.
"We expect to maximize user experience and customer value through the super high-quality display with its new 18:9 aspect ratio, which sets it apart from conventional displays for smartphones. LG Display will continue to set new standards in premium mobile displays, based on its differentiated technology."-Dr. Byeong-koo Kim, Senior Vice President and Head of Mobile Development Group 1, LG Display
