The LG G6 is expected to be among the new devices at the Mobile World Congress 2017 with the company looking to improve on the LG G5. The word out is that the LG G6 release date will be set in February or March.
Looking back to the MWC 2016, the LG G5 was shown off in February but rolled out into the market in April. In what is reportedly a change of strategy, the word out right now is that the LG G6 will come out one month earlier in March.
The reason for the earlier release is to boost the number of LG G6 units, which can be sold in 2017, Phone Arena reported. If this holds up, LG can avoid a collision course with Samsung, which is expected to come out with its next Galaxy S8 flagship.
Bolder And Classy LG G6 Coming Out
The LG G6 will reportedly shy away from the usual modular design and transition to a high-end and waterproof phone, Android Headlines reported. On the inside, the next LG flagship will reportedly focus on services and functions like mobile payment and wireless charging.
Also, the LG G6 could come out with advanced biometric security like an iris scanner. This is the same feature that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would have sported until the exploding battery issue ruined its stock.
Other notable features include seeing the LG G6 sporting an OLED display, a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, and front-facing stereo speakers. It could also feature wide-angled cameras and hopefully a bigger and longer-lasting battery better than the LG G5.
There is no official word on pricing for the LG G6. According to Tech Radar, the possible price range for the LG G6 could be somewhere in the $650 mark.
