The LG G6's Square Camera Looks Kind Of Awesome

For content that uses a 16:9 aspect ratio, the LG G6 will have an upscaling feature that will transition it to an 18:9 format so as to make use of the screen's size in its entirety. The 18:9 aspect ratio could also realistically be called 2:1, meaning it's twice as tall as it is wide. However, if you're anxious that your normal 16:9 video content will look stretched on the screen, don't be - the G6 software promises to let you "view existing 16:9 ratio content easily" in the new ratio. When horizontally, it allows you to take and review photos simultaneously, take photographs in a square frame and connect them together in collage for "collage wallpaper", view calendar with schedule among other things.

LG has been dropping hints along the way about what to expect from its an anticipated smartphone, the G6. The LG G6's 5.7-inch FullVision display has a resolution of 2880×1440 and an 18:9 ratio.

This New Theory May Actually Explain Why You're Going Bald
For years, scientists have been trying to dispel the assumption that men inherit baldness exclusively from their mother's side. The findings could provide possible targets for drug development to treat baldness, according to the researchers.

LG is not waiting around for its 2017 Mobile World Congress press event on February 26 to reveal more information about its next flagship phone, the LG G6. Will LG be more successful this year than with last year's modular G5 design? Users of this device will be able to shoot in 1:1 mode which is among the most commonly used format on social media apps. LG says this 1:1 picture ratio is ideal for uploading images to social media outlets like Instagram. The Food mode, on the other hand, will have high color quality and saturation, which will certainly make the images look a whole lot better. Users can create GIF files by combining anywhere from 2 and 100 pictures in a loop. I think users will appreciate the many ways we've made the LG G6 more productive. LG highlights that this added screen real estate on the top and bottom will allow you to see more of the content when you're viewing a website, reading ebooks, and can provide a more immersive experience when playing mobile games.

The G6 will offer improved multi-tasking features, too.
