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 officially took the wraps off G6, its flagship smartphone for the first half of 2017. The company had already detailed many of the key specifications of the G6 before its unveiling today, but it did manage to reserve the best features of the handset for the last.
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.
Continuing to hype the LG G6 before its launch, renowned industrial designer Torsten Valeur said in an interview that the G6 has a “great design”, with the “ideal fusion” of “beautiful shape and clever solution.”
LG today confirmed that the G6 will come with two 13MP shooters at its rear. LG had debuted a dual-camera setup with the G5 last year, with the primary shooter featuring a 16MP sensor and the secondary wide-angle camera having an 8MP resolution. While unique, the setup was not perfect and had its own share of flaws.
The LG G6 has leaked plenty of times in the last one month, and the company itself has confirmed some key features of the device. Now, a week before the handset’s official unveiling, more photos of the G6 have surfaced on the internet.
