(Update: MWC launch confirmed) LG is already teasing the G6: 5.7-inch, waterproof, compact build
Update, 09:00AM: LG officially confirmed to the Korea Herald that its next flagship, the G6, will be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona, starting February 27. The company also confirmed that the device will utilize LG Display’s new 18:9 5.7-inch display as well as a wide-angle camera, similar to the LG G5 and the V series.
Original post, 03:58AM: LG has recently uploaded a video on its YouTube called “Wish list for the ideal smartphone” that hints at some of the features we can expect to see on the upcoming G6 smartphone. In the video, random people name quite a few things that they think an ideal handset should have.
Based on the video, people want a phone with a big screen that is compact at the same time and can easily fit into a pocket. The device should be easy to use with one hand, especially when texting, and come with a waterproof body. Other features mentioned in the video include reliability, and “capture it all at once” which we assume has something to do with the camera.
Apparently, these are some of the features that we can expect to see on the LG G6. Although the device was not specifically mentioned, we assume that the video is about the company’s upcoming flagship, which is rumored to be announced on February 26, a day before MWC officially kicks off.
In terms of specs, not much is known about the device. LG has confirmed that the G6 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD+ screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. There are, however, quite a few rumors going around regarding the smartphone. They claim that the G6 will come with the Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6 GB of RAM, a curved glass back, and wireless charging.
Judging by the features mentioned in the video and the latest rumors, the LG G6 sounds like a very interesting device. It appears that it will be quite different when compared with its predecessor, which didn’t get as much love from consumers as LG would have liked.
