LG teases "the ideal smartphone", probably a water-resistant G6
by Florin Troaca / Jan 11, 2017, 7:12 PM
LG already confirmed a few things about the upcoming G6 flagship smartphone, including its name, and the fact that it's going to sport a unique 5.7-inch Quad HD+ display with 1440 x 2880 pixels. In a brand new video just released on YouTube, the company seems to be confirming another feature of the new handset: water resistance.
The video, which can be watched below, presents different people answering the following question: "What's on your wish list for the ideal smartphone?" As you can see and hear, people want a big screen yet a compact body, water resistance, a camera to "capture it all at once", and, overall, a "more reliable" product. At the end of the video, LG suggests that all these things will be included in its upcoming flagship smartphone.
"Your wishes for the ideal smartphone will come to life. Stay tuned for its arrival in February 2017," says LG. This almost certainly means that we'll see the LG G6 at MWC 2017 (February 27 - March 2).
If the G6 is water-resistant - and it certainly looks like it is - it will be LG's first global flagship smartphone to have this capability. We're quite excited about this. How about you?
- Display 5.7" 1440 x 2880 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, Quad-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(20.5h talk time)

But will it bootloop one week after the warranty expires like Lg's last 7 phones?

I don't know what those people are doing, but no bootloop crap here. Puchcy is full of crap, especially when he is lying about bootloop crap for the last 7 phones. You just made yourself a complete liar. In any case this device should be awesome with its high resolution display, which will support Daydream VR, and Vulkan graphics with Nougat (7.1.1). Plus the new SD 835 and 6 GB of ram will definitely propel this device.

I'm very happy to see this! I thought that all those rumors were too good to be true, but now LG has confrimed these features I'm sure it will be my next phone. I think that they will have excellent sales with this one, the true successor of the G2. Go LG! Edit: wrong reply, sorry. But yeah, let the haters cry, they don't know what competition means ;)

There is no excitement anymore on announcement day. That sucks man. Everyone already knows everything about the phone even before it is released. This is no fun. I guess I should stay off the internet until May. :-)

I came from an LCD to the OnePlus 3T and the sRGB calibration looks way too washed out. The green on plants that I capture is not as lively as in real life, andy games and media look very dull. Not just a little, but too much. We need a new calibration standard pronto.

Im more exited about the screen to body ratio. Hope LG bring back the back bottons and keep the sides smooth and flashy with no bottons therefore perhaps a more edge to edge display.
