LG’s latest flagship, the LG G6, is slowly making its way to most major markets of the world after being unveiled at MWC in Barcelona last month. Despite packing Qualcomm’s last year flagship chipset, the LG G6 is very much a 2017 flagship device with its almost bezel-less front and a beautiful display.

The LG G6 sales seem to have started on a great note in LG’s home country, South Korea, where the phone sold more than 30,000 units within a couple of days of its launch. In addition, the handset’s total pre-orders were upwards of 82,000.
Like the LG G5 and V20 before it, the LG G6 also comes with a dual rear camera setup. However, this time around, LG has tweaked its camera setup to further improve the secondary wide angle shooter.
LG was the last major OEM to continue including a handy IR blaster on its flagship devices. The G5 might have been a disaster for the company, but some people purchased the handset solely because it had an IR blaster. Sadly, with the G6, LG is not only ditching the removable battery but also the IR blaster.
Learning its lesson from the G5 last year, LG is hoping to make a strong comeback this year with the G6 — its flagship handset for the first half of 2017.
Kicking off MWC 2017, LG unveiled the G6, the first major flagship smartphone of 2017. The Korean company had a particularly terrible 2016 with the modular approach that it took with the G5 getting huge thumbs down from consumers.

LG today unveiled the G6, the first major flagship smartphone of 2017. Right off the bat, the most disappointing aspect of the G6 is that it still makes use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset from last year.
