LG G6 : Likely features, specifications and price
Last year at MWC, LG unveiled its G5 flagship smartphone. As the first truly-modular smartphone, complete by means of swappable mods called ‘Friends,’ the G5 was quite an innovative piece of mobile hardware. But due to numerous issues such as questionable build quality plus clunky implementation of the modular design, LG’s 2016 flagship never really took off. Consequently, the company admitted that it made mistakes by means of the G5 plus corrected them, capping off the year by means of the fully-loaded V20.
But that’s all in the past now. It’s now time for Mobile World Congress (MWC), the biggest mobile technology-focused event in the world. Plus the South Korean chaebol is fully geared up to take the stage in Barcelona, all guns blazing.
We’ve seen a whole barrage of rumours related to the G6. Plus it’s not just that. Numerous leaked images, press renders plus even official videos hinting at the upcoming smartphone’s features have given us a really good idea of what to expect from LG G6, as soon as it goes official.
The LG flagship is expected to have 5.7-inch display. Unique, as the ‘Full Vision’ display will have a rather odd 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution plus rounded corners.
Delivering processing muscle to the G6 will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset, paired by means of 6GB of RAM. There are two internal storage configurations expected – 64GB plus 128GB, by means of support for microSD cards of up to 256GB in size. The flagship will run (obviously) android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, by means of LG’s freshest UX 6.0 skin peppered on top.
For imaging duties, LG G6 will come by means of a dual camera setup at the back. Comprised of two 13MP sensor modules, the rear camera arrangement will be complemented by laser autofocus, triple-axis OIS plus LED flash. It goes by means ofout saying that the smartphone will be able to record 4K-resolution video by means of stereo sound. A 12MP front shooter is expected in addition to a ‘square’ camera mode for shooting perfect Instagram photos.
All modern connectivity options such as 4G LTE and NFC are expected, in addition to a USB Type-C port plus possibly a 3,200mAh battery.
Whatever it is, we’ll know in a few hours.
