LG announces G6 Plus, a better variant of the flagship
LG on Monday surprisingly unveiled a new smartphone. LG officially announced an upgraded variant of the popular flagship G6. The new variant of the G6 is named as LG G6 Plus. As the name suggests, it is a plus variant of the device with much better color options, more RAM and storage support.
The LG G6 Plus features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage, compared to 4GB and 64GB on the LG G6. Despite what the moniker might suggest, the G6 Plus is not larger than the regular G6. In fact, all specifications, other than the RAM and storage space, are identical, including the 5.7-inch QHD+ display with rounded corners, the Snapdragon 821 processor, the dual 13MP cameras, and 3,300 mAh battery.
It costs $100 more than the G6 and will be available in South Korea first. Along with that, LG announced some upcoming features. Check them out:
- Face Print appears to be LG’s take on facial recognition, which happens to be one of the authentication methods from the Galaxy S8. The unlocking is supposed to take less than one second.
- Low Power Consumption is an always-on mode that leverages hardware and software from Qualcomm and Google to collect data from sensors and networks without consuming a lot of power.
- Finally, Covered Lens will warn users when their fingers are detected in the phone’s wide-angle camera field of view.
