LG has finally unveiled the G6 at MWC 2017 today. The device features a 5.7 inches IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 and an 18:9 aspect ratio, equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Rocking a quad-core CPU and an Adreno 530 GPU, LG wants to bring a better viewing experience to its users. The device will feature a Snapdragon 821 processor paired up with 4GB’s of RAM. The device will feature a 3300 mAh battery.
The G6 will be the first phone ever to feature Dolby Vision HDR, which is a high dynamic range video technology. The image quality difference will be very noticeable according to LG. The American G6 model will feature wireless charging. It will however lack a HI-FI Quad DAC, which the rest of the world will have. According to LG this is because they follow the people’s needs. The G6 is much cleaner and looks more premium than its predecessor. LG ditched the modular design in favour of a much more practical design. The G6 also features a dual-camera setup with a fingerprint reader at the back. The device runs Android 7.0, pre-loaded with Google Assistant. The G6 is dust- and waterproof with an IP68 rating and it has been tested in salt water as well. However, the battery is no longer removable; a feature that was much appreciated by its LG users.
Following the Note 7 problems, the G6’s battery has been subject to endless torture, making sure that it will not explode or cause any other problem. The battery has also been flame tested. To make sure that temperature stays low, a heat pipe has also been added for the chipset. The phone looks very attractive with its large screen, something that third-party apps can really take advantage of.
Basically, this device might be one of 2017’s best flagships, and this is exactly what LG needed after their not so popular G5. Let us know in the comments down below if you’re thinking about getting this device and make sure you follow us on social media.
