LG G6 Pushes The Limits In Featuring An 18:9 Ratio 5.7 Display Screen
Gone are the days when smartphone's screen aspect ratio display would fall under the 16:10 and 16:9 mark or the square-ish 4:3. Because on Tuesday, LG Display announced the world's first smartphone that features an aspect ratio of 18:9 along with a 5.7-Inch QHD+LDC display screen.
LG Display executive director of mobile division, Kim Byung-Koo stated at the launch press release that the QHD+ is expected to maximize user experience and value by providing ultra-high definition, which differentiates from other brands.
IBTimes reports that an 18:9 display screen will give users more optimized display, especially for dual-screen features.

However, the publication believes that the smartphone's features has already been unveiled to the public at the said conference.
