LG’s G6 is popular much more than the LG G5 and has got praise from buyers as well as critics. The all-new “Full Vision” display is the distinguishing feature of the smartphone and LG has also kept the price competitive.
Most brands have released a “Plus” variant of the iPhone 7 or Samsung S8, it has somewhat compelled LG to unveil for the LG G6.
LG was one of the first OEM to release a smartphone with this near bezel-less display this year. While most of the OEMs have released their flagship along with a “Plus” variant, it has somewhat compelled LG to unveil one themselves.
The G6+ is just a beefed up version of the G6 with some tweaks to make it even better. While the design remains the same, some of the hardware has seen changes for the better.
It offers the same 5.7-inch QHD+ display with rounded corners found in the G6 and runs on the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor.
The processor is coupled with 6 GB of RAM instead of 4 GB found on the G6. The phone ships with 128 GB of internal storage instead of 64 GB on the LG G6.
Key Differences between the LG G6 Plus and G6
- LG G6 Plus – 128 GB Storage and 6 GB RAM
- LG G6 – 64 GB storage and 4 GB RAM.
Additionally, LG is shipping the G6 Plus with some software upgrades
- Face Recognition – LG is calling it,”Face Print” which is similar to the face recognition provided by Google in the “Smart Lock” option. They’ve certainly confirmed that it’ll be able much faster and will unlock it within seconds.
- Covered Lens, it’s a prompt alert that their fingers are detected while clicking the wide-angled pictures.
- Low power consumption, is an always on mode which has lower power consumption.
Apart from the RAM and Storage bump, the LG G6 Plus comes with the “HiFi Quad-DAC” and “Wireless Charging” support.
Above 2 features are also there in the LG G6 but were location dependent. The US didn’t get the HiFi Quad-DAC support. While the Korea/Asia market didn’t get the “Wireless charging” support.
The UK/Europe didn’t receive any of these features. Hopefully, LG doesn’t hold back these features with the G6+ this time.
The design and rest of the specifications are same as the LG G6. LG has added 2 new color options, Optical Terra Gold and Optical Marine Blue; being reminiscent to the Coral Blue in the Samsung S8 series. They’re named optical for a reason, the presence of a lenticular film justifies the optical effect.
The G6+ is now available in the Korean market. There’s no confirmed news yet, on the official pricing and the global availability. We can expect the LG G6+ might cost a $100 more than the G6. In India, it can be priced close to Rs. 47,000.
