To be in the competition and make itself a choice for consumers, LG has enhanced its flagship phone, the G6 with more storage and other new features. The new version of the phone will feature enhanced security option and user-friendlier features. New capabilities in the form of Face Print, Low Power Consumption and Covered Lens warning will be introduced to existing devices via a software update and included in all new LG G6 units sold.
Face Print is an enhanced security option developed by LG that is more convenient to use than existing facial recognition technology. With Face Print, owners can unlock the LG G6 by simply holding the phone up to their faces without the need to press any buttons. Unlocking occurs as soon as the registered face is recognized, usually in less than one second on average. The camera is only activated when the phone is raised to the face so there is no additional battery drain when using Face Print.
Another new feature, Low Power Consumption, is built into the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP architecture integrated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile platform of the LG G6.
Covered Lens alerts the user with a notification on the display if a finger (or fingers) inadvertently make it into the shot before the shutter is activated. Thus aiding in good photo shots.
LG is introducing two new colors for the LG G6: Optical Marine Blue and Optical Terra Gold. The backs of these new phones are covered with a lenticular film to deliver a mesmeric optical effect.
The new LG G6+ features 128GB of onboard storage and premium earphones from B&O PLAY to take full advantage of the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC featured in the smartphone. Available in Optical Astro Black, Optical Marine Blue and Optical Terra Gold, the turbocharged LG G6+ will come with the addition of wireless charging in some countries.
The exact dates of availability of the software update and the LG G6+ will be announced locally in each market.
