MojoKid writes: LG has unveiled the new G6 smartphone today and the company has gone completely back to the drawing board versus its predecessor, the G5. In its place is a compact, efficient aluminum unibody design with a large 5.7-inch QHD+ display with a 2880X1440 resolution. That display is the main focal point of the G6, and it has a rather unorthodox 18:9 screen ratio, which LG says allows that smartphone to better fit in your hand and LG notes that the aspect is being adopted as a universal format from the likes of film studios and content providers like Netflix. Its thin bezels also give the LG G6 an 80 percent screen to body ratio. With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 on board, LG may not have bragging rights when it comes to outright performance versus rumored devices that will bring Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 to market this year, but the 821 is certainly no slouch either. Complementing the Snapdragon 821 is 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a microSD slot which can accommodate up to additional 2TB of storage. LG has also outfitted the G6 with dual 13MP rear cameras: Wide (F2.4 / 125) and Standard (F1.8 / 71) with optical image stabilization. The LG G6 launches next month and will be available in Ice Platinum, Mystic White, Astro Black color options. Pricing is TBD.
