LG has announced that its upcoming G6 smartphone will feature the “Full Vision” display, which is just a fancy name for its bezel-less design. The fact that LG has been working on a phone display that completely dominates the facade of the device is no secret, as the company has already been teasing the device since late last month.
The 1,440 x 2,880 resolution display will “fill up the entire front face” of the smartphone, which is apparently why it is called the Full Vision. It will also sport an 18:9 aspect ratio, which is the first of its kind.
Little else is known about the G6, which is expected to be announced at Mobile World Congress. We do know that it will not be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 835 processor, as supplies of the SoC have been bought up by Samsung for the expected US version of the Galaxy S8.
Bezel-less smartphones may be the next big trend since the success of the China-specific Xiaomi Mi Mix. Expect other manufacturers to attempt the same design and imitate what was done. Although, Samsung might get a pass as it technically started the trend by adopting curved displays first.
