The South Korean multinational manufacturer, LG has received 40,000 pre-orders for its new flagship LG G6. The company has bagged these pre-orders in just four days. LG manufactures a wide range of smartphone and tablet devices. Their products are popular among users, and these pre-orders have shown the credibility of LG devices. LG has announced its new device officially at the Mobile Word Congress 2017 on 27th February. As of now, users have sidelined Samsung Galaxy s8 and another variant Galaxy S8+. The pre-order spree is not over yet as Samsung’s new devices will not feature in the market until 29th March. As per reports, Samsung will officially unveil these devices later this month.
Features and specs of LG G6
This device sports 5.70-inch touchscreen display with 1440 X 2880 pixels resolution. The aspect ratio is 18:9 in Full Vision screen. This will allow users to get good watching space in a smaller package than ever before. It comes with 4 GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Memory is further expandable up to 2000GB via a microSD card.
On the camera front, this smartphone comes with 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear. On the front side, this device will have 5-megapixel for selfies. This new flagship runs on Android 7.0 nougat. Unfortunately, the company is unable to get Snapdragon 835 silicon chipset this time. It has used Snapdragon 821 SoC chip for this device.
Further, this mobile device sports 3300mAh non-removable battery. After last year’s failure to make a modular phone, the company has not taken any risk and launched this phone with non-replaceable battery. The designer has designed to give a perfect look with dimensions 148.90 x 71.90 x 7.90. This device weighs 163.00 grams. If we talk about connectivity, it comes with Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, and USB OTG. It supports both 3G and 4G GSM network.
The company has made many changes in this device. It has an IP68 certification rating to protect from water and dust. It has swapped the material from metal to glass. This time LG has not pushed new ideas. The company has focused more on design and hardware.
As per company reports, the South Korean who has pre-placed their order will receive some freebies. These are LG Tone+, wireless headset, Beetle mouse and Raleigh keyboard. We have no clue regarding the price tag. We can expect the price around $780 as its predecessors. Still, the query is whether users will pay this price tag for old generation technology.
As per company officials, the phone will come in the South Korean market on 10th March.
