One of the most exciting devices to be launched at Mobile World Congress in 21017 is the LG G6. With the G5 attempting to make history with a modular design LG have gone back to the drawing board and abandoned this approach and concentrated on delivering a smartphone that can contend with the best on the market.
The Lg G6 runs Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box. There is a 7 inch, rounded, 18:9, 2880×1440, Quad HD display featuring 565ppi. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor supported by an Adreno 530 graphics chip and 4GB RAM. There is a choice of storage 32gb or 64gb, however, this is regional and it hasn’t been confirmed who gets what and where. On the rear is are dual 13MP cameras one featuring a Wide F2.4, 125° optic and the other an F1.8, 71° with an LED flash and standard OIS 2.0. The front sees a 5Mp front camera with a wide F2.2, 100° optic.
Gone is the Hi-Fi Quad DAC we saw in the V20, however it shall live on in the Korean variant of the G6. A 3,300mAh non-removable battery is housed under the glass rear with a USB Type-C with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 that should see a 50% charge in 32 minutes. Wireless charging will be included for the US whilst UK and EU will have to slum it with cables.
The body of the G6 features a metal frame with glass unibody design, IP68 water resistant and there will be three colours available, Ice Platinum, Astro Black and Mystic White. Europe and the UK release dates or price have not confirmed however, we would speculate April and £499.
