LG launched G6 launched today in an event at ………. To no surprise, the phone is exactly similar to the render and leaked images. The slim and near bezel-less screen make the phone different from the similar looking to the G5 or V20.
It’s not always about the number of megapixels, but it’s sure… interesting to see the G6 move from a 16/8MP main shooter combo to a pair of 13-megapixel sensors. On the front, you still get a 5MP selfie cam, complete with a wide-angle lens and F2.2 aperture.
Also “interesting” to note is not only the impressive 2880 x 1440 pixel resolution of that humongous “FullVision” display, but an 18:9, aka 2:1, aspect ratio aimed at offering a “more immersive experience when streaming videos and playing games.”
As we know that Snapdragon 835 is still not ready for mass production, the LG G6 packs an aging Snapdragon 821 processor, paired with 4GB RAM. And not to mention a similarly underwhelming 32GB internal storage as standard. You can still expand the local hoarding room through a microSD card slot, of course, despite the 3,300 mAh battery now sitting always in place.
LG had to make that compromise to achieve an IP68 standard for water and dust resistance, also promising dependability “when the going gets rough.” Pre-loaded with Android 7.1, Nougat, the G6 is the world’s first non-Pixel phone to let you interact with the Google Assistant out the box. It’ll be available in black and platinum soon for an as-yet unspecified price. But how soon is soon enough?
