The LG G6’s design is inspired from the LG V20. However, the overall design looks quite refreshing and eye catching. The ultra-thin bezels on the sides complement the uni-body metal structure of the phone. The bezels on the top and the bottom are also shrunk, which makes this phone a perfect fit in hand. LG claims that it is able to fit 5.7-inch display in a traditional 5.2-inch display phone body.
Another intriguing part of the G6 is its interface. It comes with a new interface called UX 6.0 that is custom made to exploit the G6’s 5.7-inch QHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The new interface includes a feature that enables users to view standard 16:9 content in 18:9 format. It is also worth noting that G6 is one of the few phones to support Google Assitant out of the box.
LG G6 Specifications
LG G6 is an IP68 certified phone. It comes with a dust and water resistant metal body that has a 5.7-inch Corning Gorilla Glass 5 ‘Full Vision’ display on the top with a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels, i.e., 564 pixels per inch (PPI).

In the camera department, LG has retained the dual-camera setup from the G5. One of the cameras houses a 13MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture and 29mm equivalent focal length. The second camera houses a 125 degrees wide-angle 13MP sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 12mm equivalent focal length.
