ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics' brand new smartphone, the LG G6®, is now available in the US. The LG G6 has the Google Assistant built in and is available at major carriers and national retailers as early as this week, including AT&T, Best Buy, B&H, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon.
The latest in the LG G series of premium flagship smartphones, the G6 was developed to specifically deliver the features consumers want most – a back to basics, no gimmicks approach to smartphones and a big screen experience without the inconvenience of a bigger phone.
The Big Screen That Actually Fits in Your Hand
The G6 comes with a 5.7-inch QHD+ (2,880 x 1,440 resolution) FullVisionTM display, and for the first time ever in a smartphone, an 18:9 screen aspect ratio. This FullVision display is made possible by the 80% body to screen ratio, complemented by an aluminum and glass body. The new 18:9 format also offers a more immersive experience for streaming videos and playing games compared to the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio.
Get More In, Leave Nothing Out
With the G6, you don't need to ask people in the picture to reposition, cram together or find another place to stand in order to get everything in, simply choose between standard and wide angle settings. With dual 13MP rear cameras, including a 125-degree wide-angle lens, the G6 captures panoramic shots that regular phone cameras can't.
The G6 delivers an outstanding and unique camera experience by creating seamless transitions when zooming in and out between the wide-angle and standard camera lenses even during 4K video capture. The G6 also comes with an expanded 100-degree field of view with its 5MP front camera, which means users can take selfies without the need for a selfie stick.
Tested to a Higher Standard*
The G6 can go just about anywhere without worry, thanks to its IP68 water and dust resistance so it is sealed against dust and can be safely immersed in up to 1.5 meters of water for as long as 30 minutes.
Moreover, the LG G6 has the distinction of having met and passed the MIL-STD 810G standard for durability, conducted by independent testing and certification firm MET (Maryland Electrical Testing) Laboratories. The G6 passed the following 14 tests: Low Temperature, High Temperature, Humidity, Vibration, Solar Radiation, Low Pressure, Sand and Dust, Immersion, Temperature Shock, Salt Fog and Rain. Tough enough to pass military standards tests, the LG G6 is ready to tackle your day-to-day activities with confidence.
The G6 also endures further tests for battery reliability, including high temperatures and nail penetration, leveraging a proprietary technology that dissipates heat from vital components via an internal heat pipe, the first in an LG smartphone.
Designed from Consumer Demand
"The LG G6 pioneers the next chapter in smartphone usability, from the 18:9 display to its seamless design featuring the removal of needless protrusions," said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "The LG G6 has been designed based on the features consumers have been asking for most. Now those consumers can pick up the brand new LG G6 and experience FullVision and the almost impossibly narrow bezels for themselves."
