After the numerous leaks, rumors and teasers, LG has finally unveiled the G6 mobile at MWC today. LG hopes the latest flagship device will help the company’s position in the smartphone market after the not so great LG G5.
LG has moved away from the company’s conventional design, modularity and fancy back covers with the LG G6. The device has a full metal and glass body with 80% body to screen ratio and IP68 rating to make it dust and water resistant. We get a 5.7 inch display with QHD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 18:9 along with Dolby Vision technology to provide enhanced cinematic viewing experience. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor paired with 4 GB RAM which we have seen in many of the other flagship devices launched recently, including Google’s Pixel. There is 32 GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256 GB using a microSD card. The G6 has a 13MP dual camera setup at the back with 125 degrees wide angle lens for scenic shots and a 5 MP front camera with 100 degrees wide angle lens which features gesture shot and auto shot for selfies.
LG G6 features a 3,300 mAh battery which might be a tad less capacity given the powerful processor and the QHD screen but we really can’t judge the battery life yet. The phone supports both wireless and quick charging however the former is available only for the US variant. LG has introduced the latest LG UX 6.0 based on the Android 7.0 Nougat and also is the first non-pixel device to feature Google assistant out of the box.
LG G6 will first go on sale in South Korea on March 9th and will most likely hit the other markets sometime in April.
