LG G6 will have new UX that utilizes Full Vision display

"LG G6 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD+ FullVision display (2,880 x 1,440) with an 18:9 screen aspect ratio that nearly entirely fills the front of the smartphone".

Engadget has learned that the FullVision display in the LG G6 provides users with a new viewing experience. LG says this 1:1 picture ratio is flawless for uploading images to social media outlets like Instagram. But each window would be a flawless square, and LG feels it would make multiple windows easier to handle when the phone is held horizontally. This will allow you to have two apps running side-by-side without negatively affecting the way they are displayed. People will be able to open multiple apps and view them side-by-side, paving the path to do things like writing a memo and surfing the web simultaneously. However, there will be a special mode available for making common-or-garden 16:9 ratio content adapt to the wider display.

Prospective G6 owners shouldn't fear though, as LG says its new flagship "includes a feature that allows users to view existing 16:9 ratio content easily in 18:9 format".

The LG G6 takes advantage of the expansive 18:9 display in many ways. There's a new Square Camera feature that divides the handset's 18:9 display into two identical ideal squares, allowing users to capture images in 1:1 format - a la Instagram - and review them in the adjacent window. For multitasking, users can load calendar on the left while working on documents on the right, LG said.

The latest official confirmation from LG is about the user experience.

A new "food mode" will increase color saturation of food, and in the gallery users can group between two and 100 together photos to make GIF videos.

The camera app is also one other place where the FullVision display shines. More recently LG reminded us that its choice of screen and construction has created a big screen device that fits your hand.

LG will likely offer even more teasers on the LG G6 before its February 26 press conference.
