LG names G6 display “Full Vision”

We already told you about the unusual 5.7” QHD+ display LG Display started producing for the LG G6. It has 2,880 x 1,440 resolution and 18:9 ratio, something we haven’t seen yet in a smartphone.

Now this display has an official name and it is “Full Vision”, quite good name actually for a front panel “filled” with screen.

A company teaser from earlier this year already hinted about a bigger display in the same body. In the same time renders are showing an almost bezel-less screen that will probably make LG G6’s visual experience even better.

LG Electronics is trying its best to have proper flagship since LG G5 was the reason the Mobile division of the Korean company announced poor performance in 2016.

The LG G6 will be launched in the beginning of March in South Korea and on April 6 in USA.

LG has teased yet another feature of the G6 flagship smartphone ahead of its launch later this month. The South Korean company has confirmed that the LG G6 smartphone will sport a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analogue converter) for enhanced audio playback. To recall, LG V20 was the company’s first smartphone to come with Quad DAC feature, and the G6 will sport an improved version.

The LG G6 with Quad DAC means it will come with support for FLAC, DID, DIFF, and ALAC file formats, and will deliver clear sound by reducing distortion and ambient noise by up to 50 percent. Much like the V20, the LG G6 will also come with ESS Technology, which has been developer by a company that specialises in audio products. To recall, a single 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC was also included on the LG V10.

LG claims that the improved Quad DAC on the G6 increases circuit integration and lower the negative distortion to 0.0002 percent as well as minimises the loss of acoustic information. LG further adds that the new Quad DAC in the LG G6 will enable users to effectively control the left and right earphones separately. It will also let users adjust the balance of sound.
The Sourth Korean consumer electronics giant is definitely working to generate interest in the upcoming G6 flagship smartphone, with the company already revealing that the smartphone would launch at a pre-MWC event later this month in Barcelona.

We already know that LG G6 flagship will be getting a headstart compared to the Galaxy S8 availability in the market thanks to the Snapdragon 821 SoC. Based on a flurry of leaks, the LG G6 is widely expected to sport metal design which will be a departure from the company’s current plastic body in the LG G5. LG is also rumoured to run additional safety tests on the G6 ahead of its actual launch. Some of the highlights of the handset are said to be the first non-Pixel smartphone to come preloaded with Google Assistant out-of-the-box; dual-rear camera setup, and waterproofing capability with IP68 certification.

LG’s G6 flagship smartphone will be unveiled at the company’s February 26 event which will begin at 4.30pm IST (12.00pm CET).

LG’s next flagship smartphone, the G6, has been rumoured for few weeks now to sport the Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the latest Snapdragon 835. A new report has corroborated to the earlier leak and adds that this will mean that the LG G6 will have a head start compared to the Galaxy S8 availability in the market.

SemiAccurate has shared a screenshot of presentation showcased during a limited media event by LG at the CES 2017. The leaked presentation screenshot indeed confirms the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor in the LG G6. Some of the other details tipped by the leaked screenshot include a water and dust resistant body, a rear fingerprint scanner, and a 5.7-inch QHD display. The leaked screenshot clearly shows the “LG confidential” tagline on top of the presentation slide.

The new report also throws light on the fact that LG’s G6 flagship will be getting a comprehensive headstart when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S8. It adds that if LG had gone with the Snapdragon 835 SoC instead, it wouldn’t be able to release the G6 before late-May or early-June. The report also reiterates Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 835 SoC is built on the 10nm FinFET fabrication process by Samsung and this means that the South Korean company may use major share of the SoC for itself.
SemiAccurate claims that LG’s flagship will see the launch event in late February while the “volume launch worldwide in March sometime” which will give the G6 a good gap of at least over a month when compared to Samsung’s Galaxy S8. According to previous leaks, the Galaxy S8 is rumoured to go on sale in South Korea first only by late April.

Several leaks have pointed that the LG G6 will sport metal design which will be a departure from the company’s current plastic body in the LG G5, which sports a modular design. LG is also rumoured to run additional safety tests on the G6 ahead of its actual launch. Some of the highlights of the handset are said to be the first non-Pixel smartphone to come preloaded with Google Assistant out-of-the-box; dual-rear camera setup, and waterproofing capability with IP68 certification.

LG’s G6 flagship smartphone will be unveiled at the company’s February 26 event which will begin at 4.30pm IST (12.00pm CET).

5 Reasons Why the LG G6 Could Be the Phone to Beat in Early 2017

5 Reasons Why the LG G6 Could Be the Phone to Beat in Early 2017

LG went in a bold new direction last year with the modular design of the G5. Unfortunately, it didn’t exactly pay off. Going the exact opposite way this year, the G6 is looking to be a more conventional smartphone that can compete with Samsung and Apple at every turn.

Thanks to the fact that Samsung has moved its S8 release way back to May, LG is left with a wide open slot at Mobile World Congress (MWC). That means for the Spring, the LG G6 really has plenty of time to make a splash in the industry and convince people to upgrade their S7’s to a G6, rather than wait for the S8.

We know that a lot of the rumored features in the G6 could very well be included in phones such as the S8 and the iPhone 8, but because G6 will be out of the gate first, it will can make all sorts of claims about the technology it presents. The LG G6 will be announced at MWC 2017 on February 26.

But not only is it going to be able to compete, the LG G6 has a lot on its side this time around. Here are five reasons why the LG G6 just might be the smartphone to beat this year.

1. Samsung’s Fall

One of the biggest advantages LG has this year has to do with its closest rival: Samsung. The Note 7 and its exploding batteries was one of the biggest news stories of 2016. Samsung didn’t just lose a lot of money with its battery failure, it also has undoubtedly lost quite a bit of favor in the eyes of the public.

As much as Samsung wants the public to quickly forget the Note 7, it might not be as easy as it hopes—and LG should be able to capitalize off of that in a big way this year.

2. Display

This year is going to be all about bezel-less devices. As stated above, LG will be the first company to be able to show off its button-less, bezel-less, massive screen phone. The G6 is rumored to have a QHD 5.7-inch display with a screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent.

More than that, the G6 will have a 2:1 aspect ratio, which is a trend we may see other smartphone manufacturers follow. Overall, this beautiful new display is going to be the big feature that LG pushes.

3. Headphone Jack

In a world that is rapidly running out of headphone jacks, the G6 could make a big marketing push with keeping the old analogue intact. Companies from Samsung to Motorola has followed Apple’s lead, to the disappointment of pretty much everyone.

It might seem like a very small thing on the surface, but it could be the final straw in convincing frustrated people to jump aboard the LG train.

4. Battery Life

LG will be pissing off plenty of people this year as it finally moves to a non-removable battery, unlike every other LG smartphone that’s come out. That’ll probably mean that the G6 will be waterproofed, to compete with the other phones in the market.

However, the good news is that LG is rumored to be including a massive 3,200 mAh battery in the back, while the Galaxy S8 is rumored to have a 3,000 mAh battery. This could give the G6 better full-day experience, which it’ll probably need to power the massive display this device is rumored to have.

5. Software

Lastly, we have to mention that LG has released a new video that teases its new UX for the G6. In addition, rumors have been pointing toward the fact that LG is going to be using its additional screen real estate to improve multitasking, though we’ll have to wait to see exactly what the company has up its sleeve.

While it’s true that we don’t know much about what Samsung will be doing, both LG and Samsung have always stumbled with its software skinning. So far, it looks like LG could be finally making a turn on this with the G6.
