Hi-Fi version of the LG G6 with Quad DAC and Dual SIM capabilities surfaces in Singapore
Just the other day, we told you that the LG G6 variant sporting Quad DAC would soon be available in regions outside of Korea. One country that is greeting the device with open arms starting today is Australia. Another country that will be offering this version of LG's new flagship is Singapore. A couple of images we received today from a PhoneArena reader show the LG G6 with labeling on the back promoting the Quad 32-bit DAC. The other picture shows the Quick Settings screen on the handset, which contains an on/off switch for the Quad DAC feature.

The Quad Digital-to-Analog converter in the LG G6 offers better sound quality with less distortion. Offering users the ability to control left and right channels separately, audio is balanced better. With four DACs inhibiting a single chip by definition, the size of the component is reduced. This so called Hi-Fi edition of the phone also comes with 64GB of native storage, twice the amount that is found on the regular version of the phone.

The Hi-Fi model of the LG G6 is available in Australia via retailers JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman. It is priced at the equivalent of $900 USD. In Singapore, the phone will be offered starting tomorrow at the equivalent of $988 USD.

Thanks for sending this in!

Too bad LG is too stupid to release it in U.S and Europe.

I can't wait until LG releases it in the U.S. and Europe under pressure of Samsung f***ing their sales. Early adopters will really look like @$$hats, and then it might actually be worth upgrading from the G5.

What a fail move by LG, restricting certain hardware features within the same model.

Didn't LG release a G4/5 with a snapdragon 6xx series chip in Russia or something while the rest had the 8xx version?

Maybe they need to do this to save money or something, but wouldn't creating multiple versions of the same model with different hardware be harder to manage as they'd have to measure and produce market specific variants?

Also the software support would be split for the device with different versions needed for different hardware.

Really weird move by LG.

It does not need a Quad DAC, it needs better amp. Even 4000$ DAPs have two DACs, one for every channel

Too bad we're treated like 2nd class citizens here in Europe even though we have a lot of spending power. Samsung, LG and HTC all cut cost on phones that come here. It's much more important to look closely on the spec sheets before purchasing than it was before.

it will also be availabe in Indonesia for only 39USD cheaper than the S8.
i dont know what lg indonesia is smoking, but with the last year internals it should be more than 100USD cheaper if they want it to sell well.

Its amazing how stupid LG can be. I mean there have been no news on this phone being released in my country (India). I mailed them and all they said is "LG G6 Project is under process".

For me it would be interesting since I would only use the phone as an USB OTG device for audio. I always work with a separate dac but the digital prep would be better in this phone.
