LG Says Next Flagship to Get QHD+ 18:9 LCD Screen
LG Display has announced a new smartphone screen intended for its forthcoming flagship handset, the G6. The screen measures 5.7 inches across the diagonal and includes a non-standard 18:9 aspect ratio. "The new 18:9 aspect ratio represents LG Display's direction on how displays should evolve, while meeting the rising trend for watching videos on smartphones," said the company. "The 18:9 aspect ratio is also optimized for multi-tasking, using dual-screen functions." The QHD+ resolution adds 320 pixels to the length of the display, improving it from 2560 x 1440 pixels to 2880 x 1440 pixels with a pixel density of 564ppi. The new screen also shrinks the bezel requirements, reduces overall thickness, improves outdoor viewability, and reduces power requirements. LG is expected to announced the G6 with this new display as soon as the Mobile World Congress trade show next month.
