The company's camera app will get an upgrade thanks to the extra screen real estate provided by the 18:9 aspect ratio, which also allows LG to introduce a new "Square" mode which lets users take and immediately preview shots destined for social media. However, LG itself has now spoken on the matter and it's time to hear what the company has to say to persuade us that this is the way to go. This should also make good use of Android Nougat's multi-window feature. This will allow you to have two apps running side-by-side without negatively affecting the way they are displayed. The 5.7-inch display of LG G6 will offer 18:9 aspect ratio Full Vision display. Today, we have an official video from LG teasing version UX 6.0 of the G6's user interface. Apart from the obvious increase in screen real-estate while using the split-screen mode, LG has optimised its apps like the Calendar app that will now show dates on the left with the details on the right. This will enable you to shoot photos in a 1:1 format (which is popular on platforms such as Instagram), and then review those photos instantly in the adjacent square. There's a new Square Camera feature that divides the handset's 18:9 display into two identical ideal squares, allowing users to capture images in 1:1 format - a la Instagram - and review them in the adjacent window. Right now, most apps are created to work in a 16:9 environment, but LG says that support for 18:9 panels is "sharply rising".

The LG G6 with FullVision was inspired by the philosophy of experts in the movie industry who believe that an 18:9 ratio screen would be the best solution for viewing both old and new cinematic content in the digital age.

LG's G6, its new flagship phone, will feature a new mobile user interface when it's unveiled later this month, the handset maker said Wednesday. This allows you to simultaneously shoot photos and see the results without leaving the camera app even for a second.

The LG G6 takes advantage of the expansive 18:9 display in many ways.
