LG G6 details spilled in images, plus our rumored list of specs

This week the LG G6 appears to have been leaked in an image which shows some extreme close-ups with the smartphone. This is the sort of close-up that generally comes with a press release for magazines - that means massive. And lucky us, there's a fellow out there who is so invested in creating 3D renders of devices, that he's made it even more massive so we can see what it might look like at release.

LG’s Android Wear 2.0 watches got some blurry pics

LG’s Android Wear 2.0 watches got some blurry pics

Android Wear, and smartwatches, might be making a comeback. That is, if the recent spate of leaks and teasers are any indication. TAG Heuer and Casio definitely seem to still be invested in the wearable line. The latest to come our way are these two small res images of LG's upcoming Android Wear 2.0 watches, one with a larger, sporty design and the other with a more petite but classier body. The big question now is whether these two will be the Nexus-like smartwatches Google supposedly has cooking this year.

LG G6 debuting late February, without Snapdragon 835

LG G6 debuting late February, without Snapdragon 835

Samsung and Qualcomm now have something in common. Both have had literally hot flagship, the Snapdragon 810 for Qualcomm and the Galaxy Note 7 for Samsung. Unsurprisingly, the two have forged a partnership that, also unsurprisingly, will be to the exclusion of other players in the field. Case in point is the LG G6, which will be supposedly be unveiled in a month's time. It might be coming early, but that will come at a cost. It won't run on the latest Snapdragon 835, because, word on the street is, Samsung has exclusive rights to the chip until April.

LG Music Flow to get Google Home, Multiroom next month

At least among Google’s fans and partners, Google Home, and its smart Assistant, is the new hot trend. It also happens to be Google’s biggest walled garden as far as features go. Which is why, almost like a major Android version, users are incessantly asking when they’re going to get even some integration with those features. For owners of LG’s Music Flow wireless speakers, the answer is “end of February”, which might be a generous estimate but a much welcomed estimate nonetheless.

LG Aristo on T-Mobile, MetroPCS offer bang, style for buck

LG Aristo on T-Mobile, MetroPCS offer bang, style for buck

Buying a smartphone, more often than not, involves a series of compromises, usually between price, feature, and design. Lately, however, design has stopped being an issue, with even the most wallet-friendly models sporting better-looking bodies. Take for example the LG Aristo, now available on T-Mobile and MetroPCS, which is, through and through, a lower mid-range smartphone, but one that you won’t be embarrassed to hold in public.

LG G6 promised not to explode

LG G6 promised not to explode

The incident involving the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has had everybody reeling, from consumers all the way up to other smartphone makers. 2017 will most likely be marked by OEMs boasting about how safe their smartphone will be, particularly when it comes to batteries and heat management. LG is kicking off that trend by explaining the steps it has taken to ensure the utmost safety of their smartphones. And while it specifically names the LG V20 in its piece, given the timing, there is very little doubt those same points will apply to the upcoming LG G6 as well.

LG G6 features teased by LG itself

LG G6 features teased by LG itself

What would be your ideal smartphone? If you were to ask a hundred people, you're bound to get half as much different answers. And yet LG seems to have whittled that down to just five. Well, at least that implies that the G6, or whatever LG will call the smartphone it will announced at MWC next month, will have these five "most desired" features. At least that's the promise. The delivery, on the other hand, might be a different story.

LG G6 to beat Galaxy S8 to market

LG G6 to beat Galaxy S8 to market

It seems that the rivalry between Samsung and LG will be coming back in full swing this year, especially after Samsung revealed its vulnerability. Ironically, LG might actually be taking a page out of Samsung's book in doing so. According to Korean media, the LG G6, name still unconfirmed, is scheduled to launch early in South Korea, right in the first week of March. This mirrors Samsung's rather successful tactic that launched the Galaxy S7 earlier than usual in order to boost its first and second quarter financials.

LG G6 will have an odd 18:9 5.7-inch screen

LG G6 will have an odd 18:9 5.7-inch screen

Gone are the days when screen aspect ratios were simple. Though there’s really no one ratio to rule them all, you could expect screens to fall under either 16:10, 16:9, or the square-ish 4:3. Nowadays, you have resolutions like 3:2 or the ridiculously wide 21:9, which can be found on some new monitors. LG, who makes some of those monitors, is once again pushing the envelope with a new 18:9 screen for smartphones from LG Display. And in case you missed it, that might very well be the LG G6’s screen.

LG giving up on modular design with G6 smartphone

LG giving up on modular design with G6 smartphone

As was rumored as far back as October, LG has essentially admitted that its take on the modular smartphone with last year's G5 hasn't panned out, and it will be moving away from the strategy with the upcoming LG G6. Fortunately the company isn't giving up on smartphones altogether after the G5 and its add-on "Friends" modules flopped with consumers, with LG's Chief Technologist Skott Ahn telling the Wall Street Journal that it's "not something we would consider."

In addition to domestic robots, which the company hopes will offer a more personal interface for its connected appliances, there are larger versions intended for public spaces. Your next flight check-in might be courtesy of a friendly Dalek.
