LG G6 - What's new

There is always so much excitement surrounding a flagship, especially before and just after its release. The LG G6, from the South Korean company is definitely one of the most anticipated handsets of the year. It was announced on February 26 and is set to go on sale in the US in April. Just like other flagships, people want to know what is new and why they need to get their own LG G6 the minute it is out.

So, what is new in the new model that is different from models from the previous years?

1. Battery and camera

One of the features that make people buy a specific handset is the battery. The LG G6 has ditched the removable battery, but it has maintained impressive battery power. The phone has 3300mAh which might be less than what some other phones are offering, but which is more than sufficient for anyone who uses their phone a lot.

People also carefully consider a camera’s capability before they purchase a phone. The LG G6 therefore spots an upgrade with a dual lens 13 MP camera. It also has wide and focused sensors with f/1.8 and f/2.4 respectively. This camera is pretty impressive.

2. Design

LG G6 offers buyer three colors to choose from: black, white and platinum. It comes with Gorilla Glass 5 at the rear and a slim metal design. It is water resistant which is a necessary feature in all phones nowadays.

Additionally, the camera has been slimmed down eliminating the unsightly bulge in its predecessors. This flagship has also incorporated a new style. The fingerprint sensor, which can be used to unlock your LG G6, and power button are at the back of the phone falling right under the index finger, a convenient place to be.

3. Size and display

The LG G6 is 5.7 inches long. It has quality HD display and a resolution of 1440 by 2880. This coupled with a screen to body ratio of 18:9 and pixel density at 564 ppi makes the LG G6 A beautifully balanced and carefully crafted handset.

It supports HDR and Dolby Visual which makes it perfect for watching videos, movies and even gaming because of its clarity and diversity. This is a step up from the LG G5 which many thought was a bit boring. The LG G6 has definitely stepped up.

4. Software and hardware

LG runs on Android Nougat overlaid with LG UX 6.0 and is powered by Snapdragon 821 chipset from Qualcomm. To top it all off, LG G6 also a Google assistant, the second of two phones to incorporate this voice assistant. The flagship also has 4 GB of RAM and USB port type C for charging.


The LG G6 has come to redeem the company at a time when people had begun losing interest, especially because the LG G5 was not widely received with enthusiasm. It felt like it let a lot of people down which is what makes the LG G6 very desirable. LG has taken a step in the right direction.
