A New Mobile Tech trend— The 18:9 screen-to-body ratio


With the ubiquity of smartphones worldwide, trends in mobile technology have been continuously spanning the users’ consciousness through the years. Through their flagship models, brands aim to up one another with “owned” features, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, opening the consumers’ eyes to more opportunities for their digital lifestyles.

Global tech innovator LG Electronics is no stranger to thisevolvingmobile landscape. This year, with the LG G6 smartphone globally launched in the recent Mobile World Congress and set to surface in the Philippines soon, LG brings yet another trend to the table—the well-designed, highly-functional 18:9 screen-to-body ratio.

The smartphone is easy to hold, even with its large screen. According to ergonomics research teams led by Dr. AndrisFreivalds at Pennsylvania State University and Dr. Ji Yong-gu at Yonsei University, the G6 received the highest marks when tested for stability, comfort and muscle fatigue prevention.Sculpted from aluminum and glass, which comes in black, platinum and white, the G6 offer a sleek minimalist design with rounded corners, extremely narrow bezels and a perfectly flat black—no camera bump to avoid or protect.

More than the breakthrough 18:9 format and complementary design, LG G6 also stakes its claim as the first smartphone to feature Dolby Vision technology. But not only does it support Dolby Vision, it also supports HDR 10, both of which are standards for High Dynamic Range (HDR), the picture quality technology which allows a wider range of color, luminosity and detail.With HDR content from Netflix and Amazon on the rise, users can watch popular shows in stunning HDR quality on the G6. Amazon will also increasingly create 18:9 content for a cinematic viewing experience on the 18:9 QHD+ display.

“There were a lot of expectations for LG’s newest flagship smartphone, succeeding our multi-awarded models from the G series,” LG Mobile Philippines VP Jay Won said. “This year, on top of our further developed features, LG G6 is promoting next-level display with our 18:9 screen ratio. It’s a simple technology but it offers a whole new spectrum of capabilities—enhanced cinematic viewing, creative photos for social media, efficient multi-tasking—with its big screen that fits comfortably in one hand.”
