LG has an advantage this year of going early to the market ahead of Samsung, as Samsung is unlikely to unveil the Samsung S8 in February. LG G6 could reach markets earlier than Samsung S8 and it could make a huge difference in sales volume if LG makes a killer phone this year. We have higher hopes from LG, after years of great promise and low key delivery.
The new rendered leaked suggests that LG would be moving away from the modular design for the LG G6. Read More about LG G5 Modular design and features.
It will be interesting to see if Motorola also moves away from the modular design as the modules tend to be popular only with a select niche of users. For most users, the simple non-modular design is a daily driver.
Lg shared the below image just ahead of the MWC unveiling, reiterating the fact that the smartphone will be waterproof.
The LG G6 is also going to pack some of the fastest hardware any smartphone ever came with.
Lets have a glimpse into the future to see what is going to come down the line.
Firstly the smartphone will have a 5.7 inch display with a whooping 2K resolution and a unusual aspect ratio of 18:9 . This is an unusual aspect ratio and not been used on any other smartphone. Traditionally most of the new smartphones comes with 16:9 aspect ratio, Xiaomi Mi Mix was an exception with 17:9.
LG display manufacturing unit has confirmed that they have made the 5.7 inch screen panel and it will feature on the Next LG Flagship smartphone.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Snapdragon 821 ?
LG G6 will come with either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor if they manage to get some from Qualcomm, as the recent reports suggest Samsung is grabbing all of these new chips for the Samsung S8.
The SD 835 is an Octa-Core SOC, clocked at 2.45 GHz. The processor will be faster and more energy efficient compared to the current generation of processors like the SD 821 or SD 820. There are some new rumors which are suggesting that the Snapdragon 821 instead of the Snapdragon 835, which will definitely not go well with the early adopters and tech enthusiasts.
The Snapdragon 835 is developed by Qualcomm and Samsung together and will come with the 10 NM manufacturing process. The processor will feature in many upcoming future smartphones like OnePlus 4 , Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus HTC 11 and the Nokia 8.
Other wise the LG G6 is going to run on the current fastest Snapdragon 821 Processor which is already present in Google Pixel and the OnePlus 3T.
In terms of RAM it won’t be getting anything less than 8 GB, but the leaks say a 6 Gigs of RAM is what they expect from the LG G6. Though Asus has already showcased the Asus Zenfone AR at the CES 2017 with 8 GB of Ram. We expect most of the 2017 Flagships to have either 6 GB RAM or 8 GB RAM.
A Dual Lens setup with two 12 MP rear shooters supported by Optical image stabilization and a much advanced auto-focus system is what is expected from the LG G6, for the front a 12 MP wide angle shooter with screen flash technology is expected.
The smartphone’s Battery could be 3500 mAh (with ultra fast charging), that may be sufficient to handle the the hardware and the Quad HD display.
The LG G6 will also see enhancements in design, software and features like stereo front speakers, advanced fingerprint scanner embedded with home button and always on display etc.
These are all we know about the LG G6 smartphone, and as we said before these should not be considered as the finalized specs of the LG G6 smartphone.
Moreover the smartphone is expected to launch in March 2017 and these early leaks are to be taken with a pinch of salt.
