LG is taking its time unveiling its new flagship smartphone currently only known as the G6, for the sake of convenience. The South Korean electronics and tech giant is gradually revealing some of the new features and design choices of their upcoming device. The latest reveal showcases the phone’s bezel-less display.
The LG G6 has been previously revealed to feature a somewhat unorthodox screen ratio of 18:9, due to its higher screen size. However, LG plans that to have its LG flagship one of the largest screens around, without actually increasing the size of the phone.
The company has claimed that the LG G6 will not be any larger than previous generations, despite having a larger screen with a QHD+ display, with a resolution of 2880 x 1440. LG’s plans can be achieved only by reducing the size of the bezels on all sides of the screen. The latest reveal of the LG G6 smartphone’s feature showcases the name of this new type of screen, called Full Vision.
Over the years, smartphone have gotten increasingly bigger as display technology improved and companies wanted to take advantage of all the screen real estate. However, continuing this trend in the same pattern means that phones will become as big as tablets, which somewhat defeats their purpose.
However, one way to increase the size of the display without increasing the overall measurements of the phone is by removing the gaps of space on the sides of the screen. Smartphone companies around the world are competing to release the first mass-produced smartphone with as little bezels as possible if any at all. Xiaomi was the first company to reveal a working concept with the Mi Mix smartphone.
Their reveal seems to have spurred LG and Samsung to action as well, as industry experts believe that they will a phone with a bezel-less display this year. The upcoming LG G6 is also known to have thermal management, increased water resistance at the cost of removing the detachable battery.
LG is expected to fully unveil its new flagship smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2017 on February 26th.
