LG confirms wide-angle cameras for both sides of the LG G6


We’re not even a week out from the debut of the LG G6, but that isn’t stopping the company from giving us a few more specifics about its next flagship. Today, the company is revealing new details about the camera sensors on both sides of the device…

In a press release, LG confirms that on the rear of the phone, we’ll find two 13MP sensors, one equipped for standard shots, the other for wide-angle images. This is a pretty big upgrade considering LG’s previous dual camera setups have used a single high-resolution camera for standard shots, but an inferior camera for those spectacular wide-angle images.

Considering LG’s dual camera setup is one of the more useful and unique, this is a change I’m more than happy to see as it means shots will also have the same quality regardless of the sensor used.

Further, LG has confirmed that both the front and rear of the phone will offer a wide-angle lens at slightly varying degrees. On the rear, we’ll find a 125° angle lens, which is slightly smaller than the 135° angle we saw on the LG G5 and LG V20. The company explains that the smaller angle matches up with the view of the human eye, rather than going for a Fisheye/GoPro effect. On the front, the camera will be a fixed 100° angle sensor, allowing for a little extra room in group selfies.

LG will reveal the LG G6 on February 26th and from everything we’ve seen so far, it looks like LG is going to be delivering one heck of a smartphone to kick off 2017. Stay tuned for more!
