LG has decided to drop their concept of modular design and take the G6 down a simpler road. A back to basics approach, the G6’s highlight feature will be its 5.7-inch 2880x1440 18:9 aspect ratio display with minimalistic bezel. This means the phone has a huge screen but a relatively smaller footprint than something like the Xiaomi Mi Max.
LG’s focus on the 18:9 display is evident throughout their MWC 2017 presentation. By working with multiple app developers on the Google Play platform as well as Amazon Prime Video, they have ensured that their display is perfect for a variety of content. Along with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10, the G6 will be the first smartphone display to feature HDR content from Amazon, Netflix and many others.
The LG G6 comes with a dual camera setup, with 13MP sensors. Both the front and back cameras will be able to shoot 4K as well as HDR10 videos. Another nifty feature that the camera comes with is the ability to overlay old photos on top of your viewfinder for quick compositions and collages.
The LG G6 will be powered by the Snapdragon 821 and comes with 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB internal storage. The smartphone is water and dust resistant thanks to its IP68 rating and has a battery capacity of 3,300mAh.
The phone runs Android Nougat 7.0 and it will be the first non-Pixel phone to support Google Assistant. According to LG, the smartphone will be launching in South Korean markets first and followed by other regions soon after. No information on pricing yet, but we will be sure to keep you updated when it’s launched in the Middle East region.
