It is fair to say that we here at TECH_root, are fairly excited about the announcement of the LG G6 smartphone, thanks to the LG G4 being one of the best handsets we have used, and also featuring one of the best cameras on a smartphone. The LG G5 was in our opinion, a step backwards, with a marmite design, and choice of materials that did not prove to either feel, or look all that premium. But we are looking to move on form the mistake that was the G5, with the G6 already promising a host of improvements, from material choices, to a potential IP68 rating. But it’s not just the aesthetics that we are looking forward to, but also the user interface, which LG has released a teaser video on.
The video is only 12 seconds long, and it’s hard to discern exactly what is on offer, but from the initial images, it appears that the new interface, dubbed UX 6.0, might be their best yet. It looks clean and clutter free, which is a problem that has crippled a number of android handsets, thanks to suppliers feeling the need to overcrowd their devices with unsightly apps, and even worse positioning of icons and status bars. Hopefully UX 6.0 will bring an end to this with a crisp, well designed layout making full use of the 5.7-inch QHD display with 18:9 aspect ratio allowing you to multi-task with ease.
MWC is almost upon us, and with the Samsung Galaxy S8 apparently not making an appearance at the event, it means that LG might finally get the spotlight for a change, and give the G6 a chance at knocking them off the top spot when it comes to Android devices. It may only be 12 seconds long, but for those interested, you can watch the teaser video below.
