LG G5 - always-on display

LG confirm QHD+ display for G6

After poor sales of the LG G5 last year, there is pressure on LG’s mobile division to produce better results in 2017. In an attempt to generate a buzz ahead of the launch of their next flagship smartphone, LG has revealed details about its display.

The LG G6 will come equipped with a 5.7-inch QHD+ display. An ultra-wide format will be used for the screen, with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

While a standard QHD display uses a resolution of 1440 x 2560, LG’s QHD+ screen takes advantage of the extra width provided by the 18:9 aspect ratio to produce a 1440 x 2880 resolution. The result is a pixel-dense display, with 564 pixels-per-inch.

It is likely that a number of smartphone manufacturers will focus on screen-to-body ratio in 2017, and LG is no different. The company states that their new display will allow the bezels on the LG G6 to be reduced by 0.2 mm on the sides and 0.54 mm at the base of the device.

The LG G6 display will employ the company’s own in-TOUCH technology – positioning the touch sensor inside the LCD panel itself and eliminating the need for touch cover glass. The result is a screen with a thickness of only 1 mm, that should also be more responsive than predecessors.
