LG has been a frontrunner for the past few years in the premium Smartphone range with pretty decent specs compared to the other market leaders. Though the LG brand does not endorse a sequel of its flagship models like that of HTC and Samsung, it seems the positive market response for LG G6, which was launched officially at the 2017 February Mobile World Congress has led the South Korean electronics behemoth to research with the sequel trend.
The premium Smartphone segment, though smaller in size compared to the intermediate range, draws bulk of the revenue for manufacturers. This is also the zone where manufacturers can show flexibility in their product design, incorporation of new technology, and provide a glimpse of the specs which would equip other products below the premium class.
As the market leader Samsung has begun the trend of edge to edge display, this feature is catching up with the imagination and product ranges of every manufacturer. Hence a 78.6 percent of screen to body ratio of the LG G6 Plus seems fine if compared to other flagship offerings from other manufacturers. The 14.48 cm display does not feel too small in the hands which operate devices with 15.24 cm or 15.49 cm display. Another massive update over the Lg G6 is the Gorilla Glass 3, which would better protect the device against any potential impact.
From the customer feedback of the LG G6, it was learnt the display and viewing experience of a premium flagship Smartphone matters a lot to the users who tend to use these devices for high end economical functions. Leisure activity too makes up a major chunk of the lifespan. The QHD plus resolution of the G6 Plus which received the Dolby Vision Certification is sure to be a major hit among users who would upgrade their G6.
As per sources, the 2017 Lg G6 Plus would run on the latest Android v7 Nougat operating system. The CPU is a conjunction of the performances from an octa core processor- a Quad core Koryo 280 with a clocking speed of 2.45 GHz and another quad core Koryo 280 processor with a clocking frequency of 1.9 GHz. This along with a standard 4GB of RAM would allow users to bring the optimum performance which they wish for in a device in the premium segment. The internal storage space of 128 GB is like a treasure trove for all Smartphone users, which, by itself would be sufficient to cater to the needs of the users within the lifespan of the device.
The LG G6 Plus will feature twin primary cameras, of 13 MP resolutions, separated by a twin LED flash on its back. A 3-axis Optical Image Stabilizer and phase detection autofocus for one camera and a focal ratio of 2.4 for the other camera would provide an experience like the real multipurpose cameras present in the market with advanced optical stability and image quality. This duo is also capable of taking HDR videos with 24 bits per second, and an audio quality of 192 kHz.
The front facing secondary camera is a standard 5MP unit, which clicks some pretty decent selfies and groupfies, and makes up for an altogether satisfactory video calling experience. The standard 2.5 mm audio jack is a welcome feature on the device for seamless audio infotainment.
At first thought, the gigantic 3500 mAh battery on board the Lg G6 Plus may seem to be more than just enough, but in reality, the batteries of entry level feature sets often pack an even greater punch. Nonetheless, the 3500 mAh unit would make sure the device would not run out of juice at a premature stage in operations. The G6 Plus comes with a wireless charging option, though it appears to be much slower than the wired one, which claims to charge the device up to 50 percent of its battery capacity in just 30 minutes.
Connectivity options include a standard dual SIM port- 4G LTE and VoLTE for conventional networks. A version 4.2 Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/b/g/n, GPS and a type-C USB port forms other pieces of the connectivity puzzle.
