LG has earned massive plaudits since its recent launch of the LG G6 – an impressive new smartphone boasting features such as dual rear cameras and a large display screen.
But if reports are to be believed, the company doesn’t plan to rest on its laurels just yet and has an eye on expanding the range further.
According to ETNews, the technology manufacturer wants to roll out two variations of the LG G6 in the coming weeks.
The LG G6 Plus is understood to have greater internal storage capacity of 128GB, along with wireless charging for global markets.
Meanwhile, the LG G6 Pro offers 32GB of internal storage – half of what you can get with the standard LG G6 – and a lower price tag.
Since these reports are unsubstantiated at present, we can’t offer firm assurances on when the handsets will be available and where they will be released first.
Nevertheless, we will be keeping a close eye on developments at LG, as the LG G6 has been winning rave reviews and is seen by some as a good alternative to the likes of the iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Juno Cho, president of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said earlier this year: “The LG G6 offers users new visual and manual experiences, as it marries an expanded screen with the convenience of one-handed use.
“LG will continue to lead smartphone innovation with a focus on convenience and reliability in order to exceed consumer expectations.”
According to the company, the handset was designed in response to feedback from consumers, with people’s opinions kept firmly in mind throughout the entire process.
LG hails the G6 as a “back to basics” option in the premium smartphone market, with features that consumers really want and a big screen that fits in one hand.
The 5.7-inch QHD+ FullVision Display offers an 18:9 screen aspect ratio, rather than the conventional 16:9 format.
This is a first for a smartphone and LG is excited because it believes this format offers a more immersive experience for users when they are playing games and streaming videos.
LG says that even with the large screen, the G6 is very easy to hold and ergonomically sound.
In fact, the handset was put through its paces by researchers at Pennsylvania State University and Yonsei University, proving beyond doubt that the phone is comfortable in various postures and actions, and unlikely to lead to muscle fatigue when being used for long periods.
Another exciting feature for people who want to enjoy the full capabilities of a larger screen is the inclusion of Dolby Vision.
The G6 is the first smartphone to incorporate this technology, while it also supports HDR 10, enabling superb picture quality with a wider range of colours and luminosity.
This means people can watch HDR content from the likes of Amazon and Netflix on their phone with remarkable quality.
With all this and more on offer, it’s perhaps no surprise that LG is already looking at offering variations on its flagship smartphone.
