LG has unveiled its latest flagship smartphone at Mobile World Congress, the G6. After the failure of last year's modular G5, LG said it has gone "back to basics" to focus on "the features consumers want", most notably a big screen that fits in one hand. The G6 features a 5.7-inch screen in QHD+ resolution (1,440 x 2,880p) and is the first smartphone to come with an 18:9 ratio display, according to LG. The company calls this a 'FullVision display', which offers more viewing space and adapts to the phone's large size.
