LG G6 could have Compact and Lite versions, trademarks suggest
Later this month, at MWC 2017, LG will announce the G6, its newest flagship smartphone that seems to represent a significant departure from last year's G5. While the G6 itself will definitely be a high-end device, LG could be working on some less advanced versions of it.

It's been discovered that LG recently trademarked various G6 smartphone names, including: G6 Compact, G6 Lite, G6 Hybrid, G6 Prix, G6 Forte, G6 Fit, G6 Young, and G6 Sense.

Of course, not all the names that companies are trademarking end up being used for real products. However, LG has a history when it comes to launching cheaper variants of its flagship phones, including the LG G5 SE, LG G3 s (essentially a mini G3), or the LG G Pro Lite.

We already know that the regular LG G6 should be a water-resistant handset with a Snapdragon 821 processor and a 5.7-inch, 1440 x 2880 pixels display. A Lite version may keep the same screen size, but not the high pixel resolution and the powerful CPU, while a Compact model would likely sport a smaller screen. Sure enough, we're merely speculating here. More info will likely be revealed soon, so stay tuned.

My friend recently sent his G4 for repair. For the 3rd time! LG went for terrible motherboards in G3 and G4 I hope Compact is real as X Compact disappointed a bit, if it's around 4,5" it's a winner

If the compact thing comes out to be real, we'll have to see how "compact" it really is lol

Well it is LG so probably 6 inches at least. The regular size will be 6.5 and the phablet will be 9.

"If I had a box just for wishes... And dreams that had never come true..." Oh well, lets get back to our senses... In a world where smartphones are breaking the 6 Inch barrier, We can only dream of a 4 Incher Android POWER HOUSE...! But then again, Apple has got it covered with The SE... "But there never seems to be enough time... To do the things you want to do, once you find them..." BTW, I wonder if one can actually save time in a bottle...! Oh well, G'Day!

In some markets, there is also the V20S - a smaller version of the V20. I'd love that for the V30.
