The LG G4 is a classic but we felt last year's LG G5 took a step backwards. And we, like many others, are hopeful that LG took the criticism it received for the LG G5 and used it to improve this year's device.
While the company failed to show off the new LG G6 at CES 2017, it did confirm plans to release a new flagship device later this year. The device will be called the LG G6 and the smartphone maker says it plans to get the phone out in the near future.
How soon? We aren't sure but the LG G5 debuted at Mobile World Congress and arrived in early April. We could see something similar with the LG G6.
LG G6 rumors and details have been very specific thus far. The device won't feature a modular design like the LG G5. Instead, it will feature a more simplified, all-glass design similar to what Samsung's done with its Galaxy S series. The design will feature a headphone jack.
Other highlights include a 5.7-inch QHD+ LCD panel with a 18:9 aspect ratio, 32-64GB of storage with microSD card support, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, a dual camera setup in the rear like the iPhone 7 Plus, an improved fingerprint sensor, and tougher safety measures.
The LG G6 is shaping up to be an exciting release in 2017 and one that could restore to the G-Series to its former glory.
