The LG G6 reveal told us one major thing: it’s straying away from its predecessors as much as possible. Say goodbye to the modules, ending the G series’ modular tech. For 2017, LG is gunning for refined phone design and hardware.
When looking at the LG G6, first we consider what the device kept from its predecessors. Most notably, the only feature it maintains from its past iteration exists in the centered fingerprint scanner and the setup of its camera array. And that’s it. The batteries became non-removable, and the modules are gone. Additionally, LG changed the display by adopting an 18:9 ratio.
For the outside, what stuck out in the reveal was the switch to metal and glass. This allows the LG G6 to gain water resistance and wireless charging, if it happens. Some classic design hallmarks remain, however, such as the headphone jack.
In terms of specs, expect a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB storage. The dual camera approach stays as well, with specific changes. Primarily, both cameras on the rear function as the ‘main camera’, with both wielding 13-megapixel resolutions, camera sensors, and 125-degree viewing angles. Meanwhile, you’ll get a 100-degree 5-megapixel camera for the front.
