Last year the south Korean tech giant presented to us their unique flagships smartphones. The LG G5 was a great phone, it had swappable battery, attachable camera, and many more interesting features. The company thought they will set new standards in the smartphone industry, long story short it didn’t went so well.
This year at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the company went the other way around. The phone they presented is everything you would want in a smartphone, high end specs, great design, improved software and so on.
Lets start off with the design
The phone is built from glass and metal, great combination which allows this new flagship model to gain new tricks such as water resistance and wireless charging.The color options on the market will be platinum, black and white. Another thing worth mentioning is that the platinum version is going to pack the shimmer that makes the phone look attractive when its placed face down on a table.This flagship model will use USB Type-C on the bottom, single speaker with headphone jack and a fingerprint sensor. To sum up this is a premium built phone that puts LG competing with its rivals Apple and Samsung.
Specs and unique features
The spec sheet for LG G6 looks great. It consists of a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB Storage. The biggest advantage in the spec department is the new 18:9 display which should provide a great viewing experience, followed by improved audio and dual camera.
The newest flagship from LG will be running Android 7.0 Nougat with the latest version of LG’s UI on top. As a software improvement we should mention Google Assistant, which makes this phone the first non-Pixel device to support Assistant. As far as pricing goes the phone should be placed in the $500-$range, depending on the market.
