LG Announces the G6, Available This Spring in the USBy Susan Cole Feb 27, 2017
First thing you will notice is the display. The rear camera also supports 4K video with smooth optical zoom functionality. The phone will be available in Astro Black, Ice Platinum and Mystic White colour options-we will miss the brown leather option from the predecessor. To this effect, the bezels on the top and sides of the phone are extremely thin. For most people, it won't be an issue.
The display is, arguably, the most impressive part of the phone though. Additionally, LG worked to remove the camera hump on the back, which got a very harsh reception when the phone was first announced a year ago. The new flagship is touted to be the "first smartphone with supports Dolby Vision".
LG was also careful to note the extra steps it took to ensure battery safety on the device - no doubt a not so veiled reference to the recent high profile woes of a fellow South Korean handset maker. So its curved and bendable phones needed OLED, by virtue of their design. The panel is of the IPS LCD variety. Apart from this it will support HDR 10 as well. There's a Dolby Vision test clip loaded onto the phone, but it's not much to write home about. On a phone? Really?
LG also updated the camera module so it comes with two rear cameras, similar to the G5 and V20. But it's not copying either. One of these cameras has a single normal lens while the other one has a 125-degree lens which offers a wide angle view. "And with theremote after-service utilizing artificial intelligence, the more Google Assistant is used, the more personalized it becomes because it knows more about the user".
As for the front camera, the LG G6 now has a 5-megapixel front facing camera with the 100-degree wide angle lens when compared to the 8-megapixel front facing camera on the LG G5. This means quickly taking photos and seeing the result without having to move away from any view.
One area where LG has really gone insane is in video. The device features 4GB of RAM. What do you think about the G6?

Ultimately, the question remains whether all the effort to provide access to health care proves worth the cost. They said Toomey also met privately with a group of protesters at his Harrisburg office Tuesday afternoon.
As always, now that tweet has been deleted and you can access it via tweet archive sites.
Depending on which country you buy your phone in, you may get different features.
It's also got a hybrid image stabilisation system too. The idea is to bring added multitasking, and the new dimensions make it possible to have two square apps open at once, though the practicality of such a feature continues to be limited by the phone's limited real estate.
As rumored, there's no modular design on the LG G6, but the company has done an wonderful job with the design language. All of those features are wrapped in a body that's IP68-rated for dust and water resistance. However, the battery is not removable, but fast charging comes courtesy of the phones USB Type-C connection.
While we don't have the full specs of the new model yet, LG Electronics (LG), unlike Apple, where the new model is shrouded in secrecy, usually offers up a few carrots, teasing us with some of the particulars with a series of YouTube videos and dropping hints on others. Because who wants to carry around a selfie stick?
