MWC 2017: LG G6 Announced with Dual Camera, Wireless Charging

On: February 26, 2017

LG’s latest addition to its ‘G series’ lineup takes place in the form of LG G6, the company’s latest flagship smartphone announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona. In terms of the design, the LG G6 is unsurprisingly no longer modular unlike its predecessor, the LG G5.

It is made of a metal frame with chamfered edges, sandwiched between two layers of Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The other changes include a non-removable back cover and a 3300mAh battery, which is one of the biggest LG has ever bundled in one of their phones. The battery also comes with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

Furthermore, the LG G6 is IP68 certified dust and water resistant. It comes with pretty thin bezels up front in addition to a 5.7-inch screen Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display with rounded edges. The screen also has support for built-in HDR and Dolby Vision to assist a good amount of visuals.

The LG G6 does have a wireless charging support that is region-specific, though. The wireless charging feature will sadly be limited to customers residing in the United States. The back has a 13MP dual camera setup featuring one wide-angle and one standard lens. On the front, there is a 5MP selfie camera. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The LG G6 is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB RAM and Adreno 530 GPU. It has two storage options — 32GB and 64GB, expandable up to 2TB by means of microSD. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat OS and offers dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, and USB Type-C port.
