A new teaser for the LG G6 says that the phone will be
If there's one trend that's currently circulating throughout the technology landscape, it's that of "artificial intelligence." Even if the tech inside of a gadget doesn't necessarily constitute the traditional definition of AI, it's a marketing term that's getting tied to pretty much any product that wants to create for buzz and attention. This year's Consumer Electronics Show was a perfect example of this, with everything from refrigerators to even toothbrushes exhibiting the presence of so-called "AI" features. 

This trend is no stranger to the mobile landscape, as every upcoming flagship is supposedly going to be outfitted with some sort of artificial technology. Samsung's Galaxy S8 is expected to launch with AI software by the name of Bixby and a newly discovered Samsung Hello, the Pixel and Pixel XL's main selling point is the Google Assistant, and the upcoming HTC U Ultra will feature some form of artificial intelligence through HTC's Sense Companion technology. Along with all of this, you can now add the LG G6 to the list of smartphones that boasts some form of AI functionality. 


LG recently sent out a teaser image for the upcoming G6 flagship smartphone, with the image reading, "Less artificial. More intelligence. The next generation smartphone, brought to you first by LG." The teaser also reiterates the fact that the upcoming phone will be announced on February 26th, and touts the #LGG6 hashtag in case you weren't familiar what the company is getting at. We've heard rumors before claiming that the G6 would be the first non-Pixel Android smartphone with support for the Google Assistant, so it's unclear as to whether this teaser is hinting at that or something else entirely different.

In addition to its artificial intelligence, the LG G6 is also expected to come equipped with either a Quad HD or 4K display with very minimal bezels, waterproofing, a non-modular design, dual-camera setup, and quite a lot more. It's certainly one of the more exciting upcoming handsets, and we'll definitely be covering it as much as possible once LG finally takes the wraps off of it later this month.

I have a feeling the G6 is going to be really good.

Doesn't adding A.I to a phone make it more artificial as you aren't talking to a human being (when using verbal commands, or asking questions)?

You can't say next generation phone with a last year chip buddy doesn't work like that. For you guys that say it's no big deal well then have fun with your outdated quick charge from 821 chip and less battery longevity and lower benchmarks (sure) and all around already outdated phone before it's even out.

Benchmark results are not comparable IRL experience. I doubt you wont see the difference so cut the crap.

It amazes me people still act like last years chip vs this years chip is a deal breaker. They average user and or people that don't care about benchmarks won't be able to tell the difference.

Year after year, LG gives hopes around the launch time of next G series; only to end up with disappointing sales. They fail to comeup with a proper succession plan for the model and end up chasing purported features of other biggies esp Samsung . Only to end up as a loser just like a street dog chasing moving car...

Their ugly blocky UI will spoil such a beautiful phone.

I can't wait to see what LG has in store for us on the 26th. I have a feeling LG is going to pleasantly surprise us.

LG has a very bad reputation in the past so no thank you, the design itself is also not attractive enough as well.

After the G4, it went ugly... The G6 will also be ugly.

Agreed, the g4 was the last good "G" And I don't understand why they use led panels on their phones and oled on their tvs. Oled all the way baby

And they probably won't announce a preorder or release date for at least 4-6 weeks after they introduce it. As has been the case lately. Worst marketing and business strategy, ever.

I'm sorry but what does that even mean less artificial. Is it "Organic"?????
