It has now been made official by LG that the upcoming G6 will sport the world's first QHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The 18:9 aspect ratio will be spread over a 5.7-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels. The 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution will give the G6's display a ppi of 564. According to the Korean electronics giant, the wider ratio will allow for better immersion while consuming media or playing games. Additionally, it has been mentioned that the G6 will also support better multi-tasking with dual screen functionalities.
The display on the G6 won't feature a touch cover glass, something that has so far been necessary in order for a smartphone to be touch-responsive. Instead, LG's in-TOUCH technology will make use of touch sensors embedded into the very LCD panel itself. What would be the point of that you may ask? LG says that it will result in a more sensitive touch response and improved sunlight visibility. Not to mention the fact that the lack of the touch cover glass on top will allow for the G6's display to be as slim as just a single millimetre!
