LG’s Game Changer G6 to be Revealed This Month


LG announced on January 12 that it will reveal its latest smartphone G6 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held in Barcelona, Spain, in late February. The G6 will come with a larger screen with the 18:9 aspect ratio display optimized to show multiple images simultaneously.

It is also expected to have enhanced functionality such as one-hand operation for text messaging along with waterproof and dust-resistant features. Although LG’s G6 was expected to be revealed at MWC 2017, this was the first time LG officially announced the date of its debut.

LG posted a 40-second video on its social networking services including Facebook and YouTube, suggesting the new features of G6 with a subtitle “February 2017.” A spokesperson for LG explained, “The date February 2017 refers to the MWC event. The video makes it official that LG will reveal G6 in February.”

The seven interviewees mention features such as a big screen for multitasking, compact sized-body easy to fit in a pocket, and a phone with a stable grip. They also talk about one-hand operation for text messaging, waterproof, durability, indicating that these are the features of G6 that LG wants to emphasize.

LG has previously introduced that its G6 will be equipped with a 5.7-inch display with a unique 18:9 aspect ratio. Moreover, it has announced that LG’s G6 will not have a removable batt ery but will be equipped with waterproof and dust-resistant features. The G6 will also feature a wide-angle camera lens and add new functions such as a one-handed usage for text messaging.

It is reported that LG’s smartphone business unit MC division saw an operating loss of 500 billion won during the fourth quarter of last year. However, a rebound during the first quarter of this year can be expected depending on the success of the G6.
