LG’s upcoming flagship is the LG G6 and so far, we have quite a few details regarding this phone, be it the launch date, display specs as well as hardware specs under the hood.
According to reports from the recent past, the LG G6 will be the first to adopt a huge 5.7-inch QHD+ display screen in the G series. The phone has also been reported to be shipping with an advanced Quad DAC audio chipset as compared to the version found in the LG V20, making it the best for audiophiles out there.
Now, in another separate report coming in from South Korea, it appears that the LG G6 will not only add the size of the display screen, but it will also up the battery capacity. Up until now, the largest battery capacity in the G series has been that of the LG G4, which is was 3000mAh. Last year’s LG G5 cut this capacity to 2800mAh, but the incoming G6 is set to up the game to a massive 3200mAh, same as the LG V20. However, unlike the V20, the new LG G6 will turn to a non-removable battery design for the first time.
LG Electronics is quick to note that despite the increased battery size, the consumer’s safety is still at its heart. This comes in line with what happened to Samsung Galaxy Note 7 following a battery capacity increase from 3000mAh used on the Note 5 to 3500mAh. The battery powering the LG G6 will make use of copper heatpipes that’ll help disseminate heat even if temperatures hit a high of 150 degrees.
Under the hood, the LG G6 will be powered by the revised Snapdragon 821 SoC alongside 4GB of RAM. There will be 64GB of expandable storage as well as Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. LG is expected to launch the G6 on February 26 at the MWC 2017 event in Spain. We’ll be here to show it to you!
