LG shows off design elements of UX 6.0 in a new teaser video that was posted to YouTube and although the video is rather short, LG makes it pretty clear that they're emphasizing a lot on enabling users to access as much screen real estate as possible with their upcoming G6 flagship and the latest version of their UX software which will be present on the device. LG officially announced some more details about the G6 yesterday evening which included the first announcement of UX 6.0 as well as the FullVision technology they used for the 5.7-inch Quad HD display that can be found on the G6.

Yesterday LG talked a little bit about UX 6.0 and introduced a few new features that will be part of the software, but in the teaser video you can actually catch a glimpse of what the new user interface will look like as if you were holding the G6 in your hands. One of the big aspects of the G6 is that it will feature an aspect ratio of 18:9 which is not common for smartphones, and one of the features of this particular design choice is enabling users to split up the display into two equally sized squares so they can use two apps or complete two tasks simultaneously.

LG is boasting that this will give users the "perfect proportion" for their apps on screen and it should play quite nicely with Android 7.0 Nougat's multi-window feature. The new UX will also feature rounded corners for app interfaces which suggests that the actual screen itself will have the rounded corners too, something that is a bit different compared to most other smartphones and mobile devices out there. LG is slated to announce the LG G6 officially on the 26th of February at their Mobile World Congress press conference that they have dubbed "LG G6 Day," which is when they will unveil the phone in its entirety along with the actual hardware specifications of the phone. At that time they may also share pricing and availability details for the device, though this is typically shared individually by each carrier who will end up selling the phone.
