LG will upgrade the UX of the upcoming G6 smartphone with new multitasking, calendar, and camera features that utilize the 18:9 ratio Full Vision display and a new square GUI.
LG's new mobile UX 6.0 has been customized to maximize the advantages of the device's FullVision display - a 5.7-inch QHD+ display (2,880 x 1,440) with an 18:9 screen aspect ratio that almost entirely fills the front of the smartphone.
The large screen features an expanded top and bottom that allows users to view more information when surfing the web, or while reading e-books, viewing videos or playing games.
The camera UX has been enhanced thanks to the 18:9 screen aspect ratio display. The screen enables users to take and review photos simultaneously. LG UX 6.0 provides a Square Camera feature which divides the 18:9 display into two identical perfect squares. 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. There is also new shooting mode called Food Mode that delivers high color quality and saturation. Users can create GIF files by combining anywhere from 2 and 100 pictures in a loop.
In addition, users will be able to open a call reception window next to the calendar app or the photo gallery at the same time as the message app. Multiple square photographs can be connected together and viewed as a Collage Wallpaper on the lock screen. 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.
