LG today announced their latest flagship phone – G6. The phone brings in a new & improved design compared to the last year’s G5 along with a new display format, wide angle camera and better screen-to-body ratio.
LG claims the G6 is developed for a one-hand use despite the phone boasting a 5.7-inch display, enabling the user to enjoy a big screen experience in a compact form factor. When it comes to design and build, the phone features a combination of aluminium and glass with a metal frame around the side. The more important thing is the better screen-to-body ratio to fit in a larger-sized display, IP68 water and dust resistance and support for both Dolby Vision and HDR 10 technology. Support for both HDR technologies seems logical as LG is one of the few companies to support both in their premium TVs.
The LG G6 runs Android Nougat and features 5.7-inch QHD+ FullVision display (2880×1440) with 18:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB UFS 2.0 internal storage, microSD card slot, 13 megapixel wide and standard sensors at the back, 5 megapixel on the front, Quick Charge 3.0, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Google Assistant and 3300mAh battery.
LG hasn’t confirmed the availability but expect the phone to launch in India sometime in summer.
