Anonymous, 22 Oct 2017Again the idiotic aspect ratio...Wholeheartedly agree.
16:9 was standardized for a reason. 18:9 would be letterboxing all the time, and would lack height compared to same screen size as 16:9.
Really quite dumb move, but then, all of mobile phone market are prone to making really bad decisions (hint hint, starting from no miniHDMI, no 2nd USB, no audio socket, no removable battery, hybrid sim slot, glass back, ......). What use is razor sharp thin phone without audio socket?
And that's why we're getting 18:9 or 6:3.

Aminov99, 23 Oct 2017660/630 dont support 18:9 it has to be 636 thenthe LG Q6 has 18:9 aspect ratio and sports the older SD435. Why would the newer SD630/660 wouldn't support it?

The 636 can't be because it's maximum frequency is 1.8 Ghz and these phones are clocked at 2.0 Ghz. Search the specifications in the Qualcomm web.

Sad, really looks ugly.. probably will be the ugliest phone on Earth :D maybe dark colors will make it looks better lol
Why don't manufacturers trying to make the phone smaller and more compact instead of making the screen bigger? For God's sake
well, all SD835 has integrated BT 5.0 but some of those phones are still listed as BT 4.2 because Nougat only support BT 4.2 officially. So, it's still possible that this phone use SD 630/660 SoC
I'm done with Xioami, after own so many series from entry level to premium.. Very weak camera quality & GPS connection. Is time to move on & bye2..
Adrian, 22 Oct 2017So what CPU is 4.2 Bluetooth and has support for 18:9?Maybe its Mediatek P25...
