LG G6 Announced At MWC 2017

The LG G6 will look more like the company's V20 smartphone.

LG Electronics president, Juno Cho said, "The LG G6 offers users new visual and manual experiences, as it marries an expanded screen with the convenience of one-handed use". That's why it is used to make the display of the LG G6 stand apart.

The G6 has a 5.7-inch QHD (2880x1440p) LCD display configured to an 18:9 aspect ratio, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top. The 18:9 aspect ratio also allows for flawless squares in the dual-window mode giving users more screen-space to leverage two apps at once. You can also ask for navigation routes, turn Wi-Fi / Flashlight on and off, and more. The tech jargons may confuse you, but in simpler terms it is the software and hardware working in tandem to bring HDR technology to smartphones. Mashable will have a more detailed review of the device in the coming weeks. The primary sensor is 13MP with f/1.8 and a 71-degree field of view with OIS.

There is a slight change in the cameras this time as LG has made a decision to have a combination of two 13-megapixel cameras, one of which is the standard one and the other one has a wide-angle lens. There's a wide angle camera around front, too, with the 5-megapixel shooter touting a 100-degree lens. Being able to separate the display into two ideal squares had me snapping a square photo (perfect for Instagram), while also reviewing existing shots at the same time. And unlike other phones with a similar screen size, the LG G6 fits comfortably in one hand, giving you a big screen experience without the inconvenience of a big phone. According to LG, the phone feels comfortable in various postures and actions when using the smartphone for longer periods.

The LG G6 has several unique features.

Immediately noticeable is the 5.7-inch, 18:9 ratio screen, dominating the front of the phone and pushing out the bezels to the very fringes. IP68 dust and water-resistance is also included, a big improvement on last years design.

The older device comes with Android Marshmallow out of the box, whereas the LG G6 comes with the latest Android 7.1 Nougat operating system, which may entice some consumers to update to the newer device.

The LG G6 is the current flagship from the South Korean giant and comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, which is the last generation flagship along with 4GB RAM. Both the variants will have an expandable storage of up to 2 TB, when those card become available. The AI assistant which has so far only been available in the Google Pixel devices now makes its debut on LG G6. The phone can stream and playback HDR content from Amazon Prime and Netflix. We start off with the new display. It supports Qualcomm fast charging 3.0 with USB C type of charging point. There is a fingerprint sensor on its back side.

LG G6 to come in these colour options. The G6 comes packed with a 3,300mAh non-removable battery, which is compatible with Quick Charge 3.0.
