LG at MWC 2017 – Like a G6, Like a G6

If LG don’t use this song as part of their G6 launch I will be properly upset. The phone will be introduced Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain on February 26th. It’s not long to wait, but you can at least have a look at their new UX 6.0 in the following preview video…

LG have today released more information on the upcoming handset, which will have a 5.7″ QHD+ FullVision display. That’s 2,880 x 1,440 pixels, and it’ll have an 18:9 screen aspect ratio to let you run multiple windows on one screen more easily. LG state that this display will also let you create a homescreen collage of your photos, plus you can multi-task by creating a memo on one side of the screen while surfing the web on the other.

The user interface makes the most of the display with an improved camera UX to “maximize the extra real estate provided by the 18:9 format display”. Basically that means that you can shoot images and review them on the other side of the screen. The expanded top and bottom of the screen delivers greater productivity, plus there’s an improved GUI which lets you put two perfectly square working areas side-by-side.

It’s all about multitasking, but although we’ve seen this split-screen idea on phones previously, it’s the first time that we’ve seen the screen size specifically adapted to deliver a dual-square screen.

We’ll hopefully be at the launch of the G6 and, with any luck, we’ll be hearing LG play that Far East Movement track :)

  • The 5K LG UltraFine is the external display Apple didn’t want to make

    During its ‘hello again’ event on Thursday, Apple showed off a new 27-inch 5K LG UltraFine display. SVP Phil Schiller described it as the “ultimate docking station” because it has multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports, and can even charge the new MacBook Pro. Schiller also noted that Apple teamed up with LG to build the display specifically for the new Pro, so […]

    The modular phone is dead.. for LG

    The modular phone is dead.. for LG

    We can talk about what comes after the smartphone until the thing is actually released. However the long touted next step towards the future has died a death before it even got started. According to the Electronic Times, LG is abandoning its modular approach that it launched with the G5. Returning instead to a integrated design with the upcoming G6.

    Modularisation (not sure that’s a word) was supposed to mean all mobile devices did exactly what was needed – but turns out smartphones are actually ok as they are. This news comes only a few months after Google not so quietly killed Project Ara, and Motorola put all its eggs in the smartphone add-on market.

    Modular phones, little success

    The Electronic Times article cites industry sources that have come to the conclusion that attempt to make a Lego-like device was the wrong move. However, they also take a dim view on any type of innovation and instead insist that LG will be “applying demands from its customers and markets rather than being buried in creating innovations”.

    It appears from the iFixit tear down of the new Google Pixel phone that Google may have rolled some of its knowledge into the new phone. Making its parts appear very modular and easily replaced. Its unclear if we may see a similar move from LG in their new headset as they spent lots of time developing their ‘Friends’. So it seems crazy to drop it all, given that Samsung had a similar but more muted approach – but I guess that’s what happens when your gamble doesn’t pay off.
