The flagship android smartphone from LG, the LG G6 has been officially launched in India. The mobile was first launched during the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona. On a quick glance, the mobile flaunts a big screen with 18:9 aspect ratio, dual 13-megapixel wide-angle camera, dust and water resistant, 4G connectivity with VoLTE support and it also packs the Google Assistant.
As its a premium smartphone, so the price would be. The LG G6 gets a price tag of Rs 51,990 which is on par with the pricing for Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus. The mobile will be available exclusively via Amazon India starting 25th April 2017. On buying the mobile, you will get 50 percent discount on LG Tone Free wireless headset. Also, LG has partnered with Reliance Jio to bundle additional 10GB of 4G data on every recharge of Rs 309 Prime plan. As for the colour options, the mobile will come in Astro Black, Ice Platinum, and Mystic White.
Display and Performance
Unlike the modular designed LG G5, the LG G6 got a unibody metal and glass design. It got an IP68 rating and MIL-STD-810G standards, which means the body is sealed to be dust and water resistant. In addition, the body is strong enough to withstand accidental drops. The mobile flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD LCD display with a pixel resolution of 2880×1440 pixels and 564 ppi. It also packs HDR10 and Dolby Vision that allows superior picture quality on the screen.
Under the hood, the LG G6 is powered by the good old Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. That’s the only drawback of the phone when competitors mobiles (Xiaomi Mi6, Samsung galaxy S8) are packed with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor. For storing all your media content the mobile comes in either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage option.
Dual Camera and Connectivity
The LG G6 packs a dual 13-megapixel camera on the back, just like the LG V20. On the front, you get a 5-megapixel camera. It also features a 100-degree wide-angle lens allowing you to capture all your friends in one big selfie.
As for connectivity goes, the LG G6 comes with 4G LTE, 3G and 2G network support. The mobile fully support all Indian 4G bands along with VoLTE for HD voice and video calling. Other connectivity options include WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and USB Type-C. The mobile runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box with LG’s UX 6.0 over the top. One important addition is the built-in Google Assistant, which was earlier exclusive for Pixel smartphones.
For purest audio experience LG G6 will feature the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, powered by ESS Technology. This offers crystal clear high-quality sound by minimising distortion and ambient noise.
