Finally, The G6 From LG, Announced At The MWC 2017: Here you go for the most awaited smartphone from the South Korean Smartphone Brand LG i.e LG G6. Although the LG G6 is the successor to the earlier released G5 but we have to see that whether this time it will be able to win the hearts of the masses or not. Many of the components have remained the same as the predecessor’s design i.e the rear camera & placement of the fingerprint sensor, but this time the company had tried to refine the model with its metal-clad design.
The LG G6 is Finally Here Out Now At MWC 2017:
This time the Smartphone will be available in a number of variants like the Ice Platinium, Altro Black & Mystic White color options. Also, the phone is said to be water & dust proof with its latest announced model. So let’s move on with the different aspects of the G6 with the further discussions:
The Configuration & Specifications:
This G6 is power packed with the Snapdragon 821 processor having 4GB of RAM & 32 GB of Internal storage. This was also the expected one as we have already talked about the unavailability of the latest processor from Qualcomm that will be coming along with Samsung products for the very first time sometimes in April. The G6 stands out differently with all the other smartphones with its new tall 18:9 display which would be providing the users a totally different viewing experience.
While we talk about the Camera of the device, the brand has continued with its dual camera which has some changes like both the cameras on the rear are the main camera now with having a 13MP resolution, the camera sensors & a 125-degree viewing angle. The software stabilization will have to be used in place of the OIS on the wide or normal angles. With the front facing camera, they have provided a 5MP of camera with 100 degrees of viewing.
In sense of the sound this time the LG G6 has gained more marks with the employment of a Hi-Fi Quad DAC but with a catch. As this will be coming only into the limited markets which include Korea. The Battery here with the device is yes, of course, a non-removable one having 3300 mAh of capacity. The backup of power, however, will be tested only when we get to use it throughout the day.
Another unique feature of the LG G6 is that it supports both the Quick Charge & the wireless charging as well. This will be very helpful for most of the users who need the power backup very often. The wireless charging support will be only for the US model & that’s the limitation about the availability.
The LG G6 will be running on Android v7.0 (Nougat) having the latest version of the LG’s UI onto it. This revised featured User Interface from the company have a very refreshing new look through its natural & vivid colors which is clearly visible through some of the Apps. Also having a unique screen size, LG had discovered about dividing the interface into two grid squares that will come together seamlessly.
The other software addition to this G6 is the all new Google Assistant & the G6 will be the very first non-pixel device to be fully supporting the Google Assistant. Minor camera app changes have been also made thus taking the advantage of the 2:1 aspect ratio of the device.
The Design Overall:
The LG G6 is retaining the idea of a centered fingerprint scanner & face-like camera array that was started with the predecessor i.e LG G5. The major change that has been made is with the display of the G6 which is now out with a unique 18:9 ratio of the display.
The material used has been also different this time, the glass & metal now reign supreme that is a trend which has been mainly pushed out to the markets by Samsung, which the two brands namely LG & HTC have been following now on. Overall the phone is found to be attractive with its newer display ratio & also it has offered a variety of variants to choose from as stated in the very first statement.
LG G6 Price & Availability:
The LG G6 will be made available for sale, the very first time in South Korea from 9th of March this year & followed by other regions later on. About the availability of the device in the US we have not a very clear confirmation but it might be made available sometimes later by April. Although the price information has not yet been officially released as per the history we assume it to be approx. $600 to $700 range.
