Earlier today, the Korean tech giant took to its official blog to elaborate on the assets of the FullVision 9:18 display and how the user interface of the G6 has been custom tailored around it. Address book, calendar, music player, and call menu will all use the 1:1 Square GUI.
LG UX 6.0 will feature something called a square camera which will divide the 18:9 display into two identical flawless squares.
LG stresses that the FullVision display in the G6 will offer "new viewing experience" to users. The LG G6 will also let users combine multiple square photographs and set them as a Collage Wallpaper on the lock screen.
A few hours ago LG Mobile spilled another teaser for the G6.
LG UX 6.0 is specially customized to take full advantage of G6's "FullVision" display that has an unusual aspect ratio (height to width ratio) of 18:9. With this, users can shoot images in 1:1 format - a popular format on social media apps such as Instagram - and review them in the adjacent window. The Food camera mode on the LG G6 will have "high color quality and saturation" that it claims make it excellent for taking food pictures.
LG feels that this design will have a domino effect with premium smartphone makers resorting to a similar screen ratio on their new designs. Type a memo on one side while surfing the web on the other. More recently LG reminded us that its choice of screen and construction has created a big screen device that fits your hand. However, LG itself has now spoken on the matter and it's time to hear what the company has to say to persuade us that this is the way to go. You'll be able to open "two perfectly square windows side by side, delivering a more productive, better multitasking experience" - for instance: "Inside the calendar app, turning the G6 horizontally will display the calendar in the left window while a detailed schedule will appear on the right".
LG will likely offer even more teasers on the LG G6 before its February 26 press conference.
