Coming this spring, Verizon will carry LG's flagship G6 smartphone, unveiled today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

    The latest edition to the LG G-series features a massive 5.7" screen in a compact body that's easy to hold. And, unlike other phones with similar screen sizes, this one fits comfortably in one hand, allowing you to have a big screen experience without the inconvenience of a big phone. Add Verizon Unlimited, an updated camera, enhanced durability and wireless charging, and you have a smartphone that's a perfect fit for your on-the-go lifestyle.

    The big screen that fits in your hand

    What sets the LG G6 apart from other phones is its ability to house a large display in a small body, which gives you more screen size without turning it into a phablet. The G6 strikes a perfect balance between the LG V20 and its predecessor, the LG G5, while maintaining the usable screen size of the former. The result is a sculpted aluminum and plastic phone that is almost all screen and super easy to hold.

    The large screen gives you more room to do everything you can do with unlimited data. Preview photos before you send them, scan texts and quickly browse websites without worrying about overages. The large screen also lets you take full advantage of the improved multi-tasking features available in Android Nougat. In addition, the 18:9 aspect ratio, QHD+ resolution and Dolby Vision offer a superior picture quality for a more authentic cinematic viewing experience,* perfect for streaming movies.

    Capture the bigger picture

    Capture more of your life with the LG G6's dual 13MP rear cameras. The wide-angle camera has a 125 lens to capture panoramic shots that regular smartphone cameras can't. The standard camera delivers sharp details and optical image stabilization so you don't have to worry about blurry images. Also, effortlessly switch between the two rear cameras with a smooth zoom transition. This is a particularly great feature for the budding cinematographers that want more variation in their shots.

    The wide-angle rear and front cameras allow you to capture photos and videos with a wider perspective - meaning there's room for more friends in your group shots and bigger landscapes in your travel photos. Once you have those great photos, Verizon Unlimited lets you upload them to your favorite social media sites or share them with friends quickly, thanks to the blazingly fast speeds of Verizon 4G LTE.

    Additional camera features include an18:9 camera roll display that saves time by letting you quickly review photos while you're lining up the next shot, four different square camera modes for Instagram fans and the ability to combine two photos into one or create 2x2 photo/video grids to share with friends. Even better, you can use the multiple cameras to capture wide and tight shots simultaneously.

    Built for the unexpected

    A stunning display and all those brilliant cameras won't do you much good if you are afraid to use them. Luckily, the LG G6 was designed to be dependable even when the going gets rough. It passed 14 different military-standard 810G tests,** meaning you can take the LG G6 just about anywhere thanks to its water and dust resistant shell. It has an IP68 rating, so it is sealed against dust and can be safely immersed in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

    Telstra, Ericsson and Qualcomm Collaborate to Accelerate 5G NR Deployment in Australia- Telstra, Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies to Collaborate and Drive 5G New Radio (NR) Commercialization and Network Readiness- Trials in Australia aim to Accelerate Commercialization of the Global 3GPP 5G Standard to Drive 5G Ecosystem Towards Scale- The Collaboration will use the Latest Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies Network and Device Technologies to Investigate 5G Performance

    BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ericsson and Qualcomm Incorporated through its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and Telstra are planning to conduct interoperability testing and an over-the-air field trial based on the expected 5G New Radio (NR) specifications being developed by 3GPP, which will form the basis of the global standards.

    The aim is to enable timely commercial network launches based on 3GPP standard compliant 5G NR infrastructure and devices using target 5G spectrum bands. It is expected 3GPP will complete the first release of the official specifications, as part of Release 15.

    The trial will highlight new 5G NR technologies that utilize wide bandwidths available at higher frequency bands to increase network capacity and to provide up to multi-gigabit per second data rates. The millimeter Wave (mmWave) and mid-band spectrum technologies being trialed will be critical to meeting the increasing connectivity requirements for emerging consumer mobile broadband experiences, such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and connected cloud services.

    Mike Wright, group managing director networks, Telstra, says, "This development is a big step forward in 5G readiness. In addition to the ongoing growth in data consumption, customers are starting to use applications that use more data (e.g. virtual reality) and also require lower latency, for example critical industrial and medical applications such as remote surgery. This collaboration between Telstra, Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies will help ensure 5G is ready for the Australian environment, including making sure it is able to be scaled up for our vast distance and sparse population, as well as ensuring our customers will be among the first in the world to enjoy the benefits of 5G."

    Ulf Ewaldsson, senior vice president and chief strategy and technology officer, Ericsson, says, "We have a long history of driving mobile innovation together with Qualcomm Technologies and Telstra. This important 5G standard-based trial collaboration will demonstrate compliance to 3GPP and support the accelerated commercialization of the global 3GPP 5G standard in Australia. By working with leading operators and ecosystem players in 5G, together we can enable global scale and drive the industry in one common direction."

    The trial will employ 3GPP 5G NR technologies such as Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) antenna technology with adaptive beamforming and beam tracking techniques to deliver robust and sustained mobile broadband communications at the higher frequency bands, including non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments and device mobility. It will also make use of scalable OFDM-based waveforms and a new flexible framework design that are expected to be part of the 5G NR specifications. The trials are expected to yield valuable insight into the unique challenges of integrating mmWave technologies into mobile networks and devices.

    Matt Grob, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., says, "We've had longstanding success with Telstra and Ericsson with early 4G and 3G testing and deployments, so we are pleased to be continuing that work to accelerate the path to 5G. 5G NR trials are essential to ensure a unified global 5G standard through 3GPP, as well as timely commercial deployments of 5G NR networks. Telstra brings a unique environment to test new mobile technologies and our long history of innovation allows us to be in the forefront of the 5G wireless revolution."

    The trial will utilize 5G system solutions and devices from Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies to demonstrate real world scenarios across a broad set of use cases and deployment situations.

    The 3GPP 5G NR standard-based interoperability testing and trial will start in the second half of 2017, and will follow decisions of Release 15 - the global 5G standard that will make use of both sub-6 GHz and mmWave spectrum bands. Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies have also announced trial plans in the US and Korea, to support operation in millimeter Wave (mmWave) and mid-band spectrum, accelerating commercial deployments in the 28GHz, 39GHz and sub-6GHz bands.
