Confirmed: LG G6 to come with 13MP Dual Camera with Support for 360-degree Photos

LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8

LG G6 will be here in about six days and even though we have all the major specs and features of the phone, not everything has been detailed out clearly.

So far, we’ve seen a number of images of the alleged LG G6 showing off the expected design language of the handset. Leaks of the phone’s specs have also been all over and even though the images confirm that the phone will keep the same dual-lens camera setup on the back, there was no mention of the type of lenses that will be used.

Last year, the LG G5 debuted the dual-lens camera configuration for the LG G series, but the back had a 16MP standard lens alongside an 8MP wide-angle lens. Although the two-lens setup is retained, the company has confirmed that both will be of 13 megapixels.

This report comes from an announcement made by the company in South Korea, but this was not everything that the press release revealed about the LG G6. Apparently, the dual-lens camera on the back of the phone will be able to capture 125-degree wide-angle shots, slightly smaller than the 135-degree managed by the LG G5. However, it gets even better when it comes to the selfie shooter, which has a wide-angle view of 100 degrees, perfect for group selfies. However, there’s still no word on the resolution of the front-facing sensor.


The South Korean tech giant further adds that those who purchase the LG G6 will also be able to record 360-degree panorama shots, use the square camera mode to capture images that are ready for Instagram as well as produce GIFs from the captured photos. The new camera software will also add new selfie filters and shooting modes to the G6.

LG G6 will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2017 on February 26, which is Sunday next week.
