Here’s everything we know about the LG G6 smartphone so far.

lg-g6-teaser

All eyes are set on the LG G6 which is scheduled to be unveiled at the upcoming MWC 2017 in Barcelona. With Samsung postponing the unveiling of the Galaxy S8, LG has all the opportunity in the world to hog the limelight. While LG has been teasing the G6 smartphone for a while, rumor mills have been spilling the beans for the restless hearts. One thing for certain is that LG is being utterly careful with the G6 this time, considering how the G5 failed as a flagship smartphone. LG has now officially announced that the G6 will feature a FullVision display, and also its new mobile UX 6.0 which further enhances the display, camera, Graphical User Interface (GUI), and multitasking of apps. Accumulating the latest tidbit, past rumors and leaks, here s a roundup of all the information we have on the LG G6 so far.

Display: LG G6 s biggest highlight is undoubtedly its display, which the company has been teasing using a tagline Big Screen . Betting big on the display of the G6, LG has announced the smartphone will feature a 5.7-inch QHD+ (2,880×1,440 pixels) FullVision display with a unique aspect ratio of 18:9. This aspect ratio almost entirely takes up the front panel of the smartphone. As explained by LG, the UX 6.0 maximizes the benefits of the FullVision display as it provides an expanded top and bottom that further allow viewing of more information when browsing the internet, reading e-books, and more. This feature also makes 16:9 ratio content easily viewable on the 18:9 format.

Design: Like the predecessor, the LG G6 is expected to skip a home button on the front. As mentioned above, the display will take up almost entirely the front panel, and it will likely lead to very slim side bezels. If rumors are to be believed, the LG logo will be placed below the display and the selfie camera lens on top. Coming to the rear end, the LG G6 will house the expected dual camera lens on the top center with the fingerprint sensor embedded below it. The smartphone has also been leaked sporting a brushed metal finish. There are reports which suggest a glass metal body for the G6 as well.

Processor: The LG G6 had long been rumored to be powered by Qualcomm s top-end Snapdragon 835 chipset. The latest report, however, revealed that it would instead use the Snapdragon 821 chipset on the G6. This also makes sense considering how Samsung has reportedly hoarded all the Snapdragon 835 chipsets for the Galaxy S8, which is due to launch in late March.

Memory: Up until now, the LG G6 has been rumored to come with 6GB of RAM with no mention of a different variant. The information on its storage is, however, scarce at the moment. Its predecessor, the LG G5, features 4GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage. The LG G6 will most likely opt for 64GB or 128GB internal storage.

Camera: Based on the leaked images, the LG G6 will continue the trend of a dual-camera module which could be a pair of 16-megapixel sensors on the back. Up front, the smartphone could house a 12-megapixel selfie camera. Coming to the UX 6.0, it brings two new features to the LG G6 s cameras which are called Square Camera and Food Mode. The Square Camera feature divides the screen into two identical squares, which allows users to capture images in 1:1 format. In the adjacent window, users can review the images clicked in the said format. The Food Mode, as the name suggests is for pictures with food. This feature adds high color quality and saturation for food and users can also create GIFs by combining two or even a hundred pictures in a loop.

UX 6.0: While the UX 6.0 enhances the display and camera for the G6, it also comes with an ‘Advanced Multi-tasking’ feature. Taking advantage of the G6 s 18:9 display, the UX 6.0 opens a call reception window next to the calendar app or the gallery at the same time as the messaging app. It also allows users to make a custom collage wallpaper for the lock screen using multiple square photographs. One can type a memo on one side of the smartphone, and use the internet on the other as well. While using the calendar app, if the smartphone is turned horizontal, the calendar will appear in the left window, and a detailed schedule will appear on the right. It basically makes the usage of two different apps at the same time but combined in such a way as to complement each other, to which LG says that the combinations are endless.

Battery: For power, the LG G6 is said to use a 3,200mAh removable battery, which is 400mAh more than its predecessor. The LG G6 s battery is said to deliver up to 12 hours of juice while on standard internet usage. The smartphone would further be equipped with Quick Charge 4.0 that is claimed to provide power for up to five hours on five minutes of charging. There are some rumors which hint on a wireless charging support for the G6, but much isn t discovered on this.

Audio: The LG G6 could feature an upgraded Quad DAC for a superior audio experience. The technology had debuted last year with the LG V20 smartphone. A much improved 32-bit Quad DAC delivers a crisp and clear sound close to a live performance when used with a compatible wired headphone. It claims to reduce up to 50 percent of ambient noise levels. But keep in mind that it will only work best when used with a good set of cabled headphones.

Durability: The LG G6 will most likely come with IP68 certification making the smartphone both water and dust resistant. This would theoretically make the smartphone water resistant up to 1.5 meters for a duration of 30 minutes.
