MojoKid writes: LG unveiled the new G6 smartphone today, going completely back to the drawing board versus its predecessor, the not so well-received G5. In its place is a very compact aluminum unibody design and 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. LG also notes that the aspect ratio is being adopted as a universal format from the likes of film studios and content providers like Netflix. Its thin bezel also gives the LG G6 an 80 percent screen to body ratio. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor along with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a microSD slot which can accommodate up to an additional 2TB of storage. LG also outfitted the G6 with dual 13MP rear cameras: a wide angle (F2.4 / 125) shooter and a standard camera (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.
