The LG G6 is probably the most interesting smartphone to be launched at MWC 2017. It has a wide 5.7″ Quad HD display which feels small in the hands thanks to its Full Vision display that uses a 18:9 display aspect ratio.
If you can’t wait for LG Malaysia, the G6 is finally here but with a massive price tag.
I wasn’t expecting too much from LG‘s G6. Last year’s G5 was a whole lot of hype, a whole lot of excitement and also a whole lot of disappointment. They were ambitious, but rubbish and that’s just a big shame. This year, I’m happy to report that LG has been wise. They chose to keep (and improve) the one feature I liked about the G5 and started from scratch with everything else.
But is it enough?
After a myriad of leaks and rumours, LG’s G6 was launched today in Barcelona, Spain. The company has ditched the modular design, ditched the removable battery and ditched the weird plasticky metal body of its previous flagship. So, what’s left?
There are plenty of dual-camera smartphones in the market. However, LG has been doing things differently by offering a secondary lens dedicated for wide-angle shots. This was first introduced on the LG G5, followed by the LG V20. For their upcoming LG G6 flagship, the Korean smartphone maker will continue this trend but they are stepping things up with a better setup.
The LG G6 will feature a massive 5.7″ Quad HD display on a smaller footprint. The South Korean smartphone maker is calling it a FullVision display as it occupies almost the entire front of the phone. This is made possible with an unconventional 18:9 display aspect ratio which pushes 2,880×1,440 pixels resolution.
Having additional pixels on the screen would be wasteful if existing apps can’t take full advantage of it. To address that, LG is introducing a new UX 6.0 interface which has been teased ahead of its big reveal.
With Samsung out of the running for MWC 2017, at least when it comes to smartphones, LG looks to take all the spotlight as their flagship G6 should get its unveiling at the world’s largest mobile show. But that also means the G6 takes centre stage when it comes to leaks and its latest one reveals that the new handset may come in more than one body type.
As LG looks poised to launch their upcoming flagship, the G6, at the end of next month, a new report from Forbes just dropped that sheds some light what might be disappointing for LG fans to hear: The LG G6 will allegedly not come with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor and here’s why.
LG is expected to show off something big on the eve of MWC 2017 at Barcelona. Likely to be its next flagship, the LG G6, this device would be a significant jump from its previous flagship especially the current modular G5.
With MWC 2017 happening next month, LG is about to reveal its successor of the LG G5. To pique your interest, they have just released a teaser video which claims to bring your ideal smartphone to life.
