LG has just unveiled its newest flagship, the LG G6, which is primarily built from the voice of consumers.
The G6 is IP68 certified for water and dust resistance, and utilizes a rounded square design that eliminates unnecessary protrusions such as the camera module. It sports a metal + glass construction, with a 5.7-inch QHD display built into a 5.2-inch body. As they noted: More to see, less to hold.
The display sways away from the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio and uses what they call Full Vision display, which uses an 18:9 aspect ratio for an even more immersive experience.
At the heart of the G6 is a Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, along with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a Hi-Fi Quad DAC for superior sound quality, and a 3300mAh battery.
For the imaging department, LG has equipped the new flagship with dual 13MP cameras one with a 125° wide angle lens, and allows for seamless optical zoom. Upfront is a 5MP shooter also with a 100 degree wide angle lens. Both front and rear cameras can shoot 4K videos.
The G6 runs on LG’s UX 6.0 on top of Android Nougat, and is also the first smartphone to feature HDR10, and Dolby Vision, which enhances image quality when watching videos. Other features include Quick Charge 3.0 support, and a USB Type C interface.
There’s no word on pricing as of the moment, but the G6 will come in three colors: Ice Platinum, Mystic White, and Astro Black.
