LG G6 Unveiled – Letting Go of the Modular Design for Functionality
The LG G6 was just recently unveiled at the Mobile World congress. The device is not a modular phone much like its predecessor. So what’s new?
Smartphone designs these days tend increase screen size by either reducing the bezels, or going bezel-less. LG did just that and reduce the bezels significantly to make room for their 5.7” LCD screen with a resolution of 2880 x 1440, giving it an 18:9 aspect ratio.
