Going by latest reports, a sign-up page on LG’s official Indian website is now live and prompting interested customers to register for the LG G6 handset, suggesting an imminent launch of the device in India.
The LG G6, which was announced at the MWC event that took place this year, is the latest flagship from the Korean electronics consumer giants and will be competing with the likes of Apple iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S8.
As seen from earlier leaks, the LG G6 strays away from the standard design of the G5 and brings an all new unibody metal design.
The handset which is the first of LG devices to be IP68 certified, means it is dust and water resistant, much like the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Nevertheless, the main feature remains the new 5.7-inch univisium display, that comes with an irregular 2:1 aspect ratio with a 2880 x 1440p resolution.
LG also claimed that this new aspect ratio will help consumers view content from streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime in their native aspect ratios. Also, the display supports standards like Dolby Vision and HDR 10.
As per specs, the handset is rumored to offer Qualcomm’s older Snapdragon 821 SoC, and many are already claiming that this could affect the overall performance of the handset.
Moving on, the handset also sports 4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded using a microSD card. The handset is fitted with a 3300mAh battery and runs Android Nougat out of the box.
The LG G6 offers a camera setup consisting of two 13MP rear cameras with different configurations.
One sensor has a f/1.8 aperture, 3-axis OIS and PDAF.
The other sensor has a f/2.4 aperture with a 125-degree field of view. At the front area, the handset brings a 5MP camera with f/2.2 aperture with 100-degree field of view.
