Reportedly, LG could launch its flagship device — the G6 — by the end of February or early March. Reports suggest that the company would be releasing other Android devices alongside G6 which includes ‘X’ and ‘K’ series lineups. Further, the company will be ditching its traditional method of a gap period between sale-start and unveiling the phone and rather initiate early sales.
LG’s recent steps are in response to its previous release, such as LG G5 which suffered due to Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge which were detailed on the same day as the former. Hence, this time the release date is set much before than Samsung’s Galaxy S8 launch which is predicted to be released in April.
According to a new diagram first obtained by Shai Mizrachi, G6 would be quite similar to G5. The new phone is expected to be slimmer than the G5 with 72.43mm dimension. The display will be within a range of 5.2 to 5.5-inches having a QHD resolution. Further, it will be powered by Snapdragon 821 or Snapdragon 830 processor with 4-6 GB of RAM. The device will be possessing a dual camera just like the LG V20 along with a removable battery. The phone might be equipped with a fingerprint sensor on the back as well. The exact specifications are expected to revealed by LG at MWC 2017.
As reported earlier, the company will forgo its modular design strategy with G6 as done with G5. Much expectations are tied with G6 after low sales for LG V20 and disappointment from LG G5. The device may get a sale boost as the company has shifted its release schedule with manufacturing to start in January and phone being out for sale just after announcements. Also Samsung’s Galaxy S8 lineup to be released in April is yet another plus point for the company.
