It's… I don't know. He's talking about wide formats.
Inspired by the 2:1 ratio of da Vinci's The Last Supper.
He thinks that 18:9 is going to become the new widescreen format in the coming years.
I don't want to buy a new TV. :(
LG's worked with developers to be sure that their apps will work, and Amazon Prime Video that's filmed in 18:9 (Man in the High Castle and The Grand Tour) will work well on the screen.
And the video viewer will zoom in to make 16:9 fill the screen.
Also an Dolby Vision and HDR10-capable HDR screen
Dolby Vision exec up to extoll the virtues of HDR
It's brighter, more detailed, and still a smartphone screen.
Comes pre-loaded with games optimized for the wide screen, including Temple Run 2 and Crossy Road and SimCity BuildIt
Offering 640,000 coins for $50 on Google Play for G6 owners to unlock every Temple Run 2 character.
Time to talk about the G6 UI!
Which makes sense, given the 18:9 display will easily divide into two 9:9 blocks.
And Nougat makes running two apps at once a lot easier.
The rounded corners are for an "immersive and stable experience"… whatever that means.
The taller screen gives you "about 11.3%" more space to work with.
Users mostly use their phone with one hand. Only 15% of use is horizontal with two hands, 36% is vertical with two hands, and nearly half (49%) is vertically with one hand.
They consulted — and brought — Dr. Andris Freivalds, Penn State ergonomics professor to talk about using things in your hands.
As an ergonomist, he's not into your cool new features. Is it comfortable?
His study found the ideal width of a smartphone is around 72mm, which (surprise!) the LG G6 meets
And at least a 7.5mmm bottom bezel — 10.6mm on the G6.
Literally every critera he's touting is one the LG G6 fulfills
