LG launched a new Rs 14,990 smartphone on Wednesday under its popular Q series. Called the LG Q6, the 5.5-inch full HD display smartphone comes with a ‘FullVision Display’ with an 18:9 screen ration. Available in three colour options -- Astro Black, Ice Platinum and Terra Gold-- the phone is exclusively available via Amazon India.

The phone’s ‘FullVision Display’, according to the company, delivers a better viewing experience, its 18:9 screen ratio giving it an almost ‘bezel-less’ look. LG claims that the aspect ratio delivers an “immersive experience” while watching videos, gaming, and browsing. The company is also offering a one-time free screen replacement within six months with the new smartphone.

Another interesting feature of the smartphone is its 3D facial recognition which the company says unlocks the smartphone “more quickly and conveniently”, doing away with the requirement of typing, drawing or fingerprinting - the traditional methods of locking/unlocking the smartphone.

It is worth pointing out here that Samsung also offers a similar Iris scanner on the Galaxy S8-series smartphones. According to rumours, Apple will also be including some level of facial recognition feature in its upcoming iPhones.
