LG G6 teaser says that the upcoming flagship will be reliable
Sammy's inability to keep the Galaxy Note 7 on the shelves through two recalls has left a small opening through which LG or HTC might emerge as the new Android champ for 2017. While that does seem unlikely, LG thinks that it can take on Samsung when it comes to reliability as you can see from a teaser that was published earlier today. The words, printed in white on a pink background, read "Reliability. Check. Check. Check."
Past issues with LG's flagship include bootloop issues which showed up on the LG G4 and on other past flagship models. Besides having the goal of making the LG G6 reliable by checking the device as it moves through the assembly process, LG is apparently planning on offering free screen replacement for its new flagship. A video that LG disseminated last month showed owners of LG phones demanding more reliability. They also stated that they didn't want to keep paying to repair a cracked screen. The LG G6 display is expected to employ Gorilla Glass 5.
The LG G6 will be unveiled on February 26th at MWC in Barcelona. We expect the phone to use LG's new 5.7-inch panel which includes a resolution of 1440 x 2880, and an aspect ratio of 18:9. We've already discussed what will be under the hood. An IP certification rating, wireless charging and a dual-camera setup (16MP and 8MP) are all expected, along with a fingerprint scanner and a Type-C USB port. 4GB of RAM should be inside. Of course, these specs are mere speculation and the real information will be out in less than two weeks. After this month's introduction, LG's new flagship should launch in South Korea next month, and in the U.S. on April 7th.
