The LG G5 didn’t grab much of an attention last year, at least compared to its biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy S7. Considering the pressure and competition, LG will soon unveil the first Android flagships of the year, the LG G6 which is the best opportunity to restore the users’ faith, in short-term.
Last year, the company announced the G5 in late February, during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (MWC) and this year won’t be an exception, the G6 will see its global debut at MWC in Barcelona and might hit the markets across the globe around the late February or early March.
LG has revealed that the LG G6 display panel will be 5.7-inch always on display having a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixel with a pixel density of 564ppi. The handset is also rumored to come with IP68 certification, meaning it will be water and dust resistant.
It was previously expected that the LG G6 would carry Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 835 chipset but according to the Forbes, the first device to use the new snapdragon 835 will actually be the Galaxy S8. All in all, this means LG will be forced to use the older and less powerful Snapdragon 821 chip. However, this is just a rumor and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
There’s also a very good chance that the LG G6 will feature a USB Type-C port, as well as 6GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage for apps, videos, photos, music and other data including micro SD slot to expand the storage.
Talking about the camera, there has been some light rumors going on. The LG G6 expected to feature a dual 16MP primary camera with a large aperture rate, which will hopefully make a difference in low light performance. Other rumors suggest that the flagship from the company is expected to carry a 3200mAh battery, while the smartphone will definitely boot on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
