LG Electronics today unveiled the LG G6 smartphone that features a new wide angle display format that produces a cinematic-like viewing experience.
Designed in response to consumer feedback and user opinions, the G6 is said to be created with a a back-to-basics approach to premium smartphones, with a focus on the features consumers want, most notably a big screen that fits in one hand.

The G6 is also the first smartphone to feature Dolby Vision technology. The G6 also supports HDR 10. These picture quality technology allows for a wider range of color and luminosity revealing greater detail for a truly immersive viewing experience.

The G6 also comes with a 5MP front camera that has expanded 100-degree field of view.
The G6 is water and dust resistance. It is said to be safe to immerse in up to 1.5 meters of water for as long as 30 minutes. And its design and build allows it to carried around in rough environments.
It comes with a proprietary technology that dissipates heat via an internal heat pipe, the first in an LG smartphone. To further disperse heat inside the unit, LG engineers positioned the components most prone to overheating as far from each other as possible.
