LG’s G6 isn’t due to be officially unveiled until 26th February. But LG has already disclosed a string of details about its new smartphone, including a new interface, 18:9 QuadHD display and a rear fingerprint scanner.
Now, with less than a week until launch, LG has also unveiled the G6’s dual lens camera. In a blog post on LG's site, the tech giant reveals that the 13-megapixel dual lens snapper will feature wide–angle tech, allowing users to take 125-degree shots.
LG says the wide angle images will be able to fit inside a square view, meaning users won’t need to rejig images when posting them to Instagram.
There’s also a new square picture mode allowing G6 users to see two images they’ve taken side by side, as well as a 360-degree panorama mode, harking back to the old–school LG Nexus 4.
A food mode, with improved colour saturation, should also help users post perfect mealtime snaps to social media.
LG appears to be taking the opposite approach to its main rival Samsung by being upfront about its plans for the G6 well ahead of Mobile World Congress.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 remains under wraps, although it’s likely to be teased at the Barcelona event, which gets underway this Sunday.
