Its going to be a 5.8 inch large smartphone with 1440 X 2960 resolution and will have Adreno 540 GPU (~568 ppi pixel per inch). While the LG will use same IPS LCD that we have seen with LG G5. However G6 will also come with 5.7 inch large display (1440 X 2880 pixels) which is quite competitive. But Surely Samsung is better side when it comes to display.
