The LG V30 is almost upon us and if there were any doubts about LG’s shift towards an OLED display for their upcoming smartphones, you can erase them now. LG has just confirmed that their upcoming device will feature the company’s first OLED Full Vision display and also that the display will be curved at the edges.
LG has just announced a new mid-range smartphone which is basically the “mini” version of its LG G6 flagship. Instead of giving it a “mini” moniker, the South Korean maker has introduced a new Q series lineup that also comes with a Full Vision 18:9 display aspect ratio. This offers a larger screen in a smaller footprint.
While Xiaomi is launching a bigger version of its current flagship, LG Mobile is taking an opposite approach with their upcoming device. The Korean smartphone maker is expected to launch a mini version of the LG G6 that comes with a Full Vision display.
The LG G6 is a huge upgrade over its underwhelming LG G5. However, with more flagships hitting the shelves like the Galaxy S8, HTC U11 and Xperia XZ Premium, LG knows it needs to do something to freshen up its top-tier smartphone offering. And here it is, the LG G6+.
The LG G6 is probably one of the most underrated flagship smartphones for 2017. It has a 5.7″ Quad HD+ display with HDR10 that feels like a smaller phone thanks to its 18:9 display aspect ratio. If you’ve been eyeing for a Samsung Galaxy S8 alternative without a curved screen, the LG G6 is now more affordable in Malaysia.
News and rumours have spread like wildfire that LG will be switching to OLED displays for their next two big flagship smartphones, ditching the LCD panels that currently occupy the G6. Although it’s an interesting move by the company, the thing I want to know is, would it matter to you?
UPDATE: The LG G6 officially goes on sale in Malaysia on the first week of May.
The LG G6 is one of the most interesting flagships to be announced at MWC 2017. It has a large 5.7″ QuadHD+ display in a 18:9 aspect ratio which gives it a small phone feel despite having a larger phablet sized display.
If you’ve been eyeing for this device, it looks like you won’t need to wait too long before it hits the Malaysian market officially.

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?
