LG will make its next-gen flagship smartphone official in a few days. New details regarding the LG G6's wide-angle dual camera system have made their way online ahead of its official launch.
Some smartphone manufacturers like to keep details of upcoming handsets under lock and key. Apple is notorious for keeping next-generation iPhone features out of the public eye and goes to great lengths to do so. Then there are companies such as LG who is more than happy to share teasers and key features of its latest device before it officially announces the smartphone.
LG Teases LG G6 Features
LG most recently shared a major feature of the LG G6, which will officially launch on Feb. 27 at Mobile World Congress 2017. The company posted its LG G6 : UX Teaser Video, with a message of "Here's the sneak peek of our latest innovations, LG G6 and LG UX 6.0! Join us to enjoy a new viewing experience with the FullVision display." The video provides a quick glimpse at the new user interface LG is introducing to take advantage of the LG G6's new QHD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and resolution of 1,440 x 2,880, which will use squares and rounded corners to offer users a new way of interacting with the smartphone.
LG Touts LG G6 Camera Features
If teasing the LG G6's new user interface wasn't enough, LG has just issued a press release touting the unannounced LG G6's high-quality wide-angle camera.
"LG Electronics will further enhance its wide-angle camera, an advantage of LG's smartphone through its next-generation strategic smartphone 'LG G6', and evolve its smartphone camera a bit further by eliminating the 'car tack'. The LG G6 uses the same 13-megapixel high-definition picture quality as the regular angle for the wide-angle rear dual camera. This reflects the voices of consumers who want to shoot in high-definition even when shooting wide-angle scenes with a wide-angle camera, thus increasing the utilization of wide-angle," states the LG press release.
The LG G6 will use two 13-megapixel rear cameras that will take photos with a 125-degree angle, which is very similar to the same natural field of view of the human eye.
LG also reveals that, just like the LG V20, the LG G6 will feature a wide-angle camera on the front of the smartphone, which will surely please selfie fans. We recently got to see what the rear camera setup looked like, in addition to the LG G6's always-on display, via leaked images of the device.
We'll know all the LG G6's official details when LG unveils the smartphone on Feb. 27 at MWC 2017, and we'll bring you all the latest news.
