LG G6 to be the first smartphone with Snapdragon 835 SoC

LG G6 Android phone

Rumors, leaks, and renders are circulating around LG’s upcoming G6 flagship Android smartphone. Yesterday was exposed that the LG G6 phone will be announced in two or three months and that it will be the first smartphone to run the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. LG is repeating the similar strategy applied on the announcement of the LG V10 where the company announced it days before Apple’s introduction of iPhone 7. This time, LG will outrun Samsung and release its flagship before Samsung launches Galaxy S8 flagship of its own.

LG G6 flagship will be bearing the similar design of its prior G5. Will also sport a similar 5.3-inch Quad HD display (probably made of Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and will host a dual camera setup on the rear. Improvements in cameras are most likely to happen (reports claim a dual 16MP setup).

The G6 lacks a physical power button, but that function is covered by the rear-facing fingerprint sensor that is designed for multitasking. Another upgrade with the G6 is that it will support Wireless Charging technology. Speakers of the phone are located on the bottom of the device on the right side of USB Type-C port.

What differs the G6 from G5 in the terms of design is that the volume buttons located on the left side will be separated, and the speaker’s relocation thing. The rest of changes consist of hardware and software upgrades and improvements, such as Bluetooth 5.0, a better 12MP selfie camera (report suggestion), more memory (6GB of RAM with 128GB storage model), latest┬áLG Optimus UX 6.0 UI built-in Android 7.0 Nougat and more.

To offer a better view of how the LG G6 smartphone will look like ahead of its launch on February 2017 a YouTube video created a 3D view of the phone based on the leaked renders.
