What’s new and what’s the difference on the LG G6

  • non-modular type; unibody design
  • unique 18:9 display or FullVision, rounded screen edges
  • slimmer bezels, wider screen ratio
  • Dolby Vision/HDR 10 profile for better color reproduction
  • larger .4-inch display with higher pixel count at 564ppi
  • thicker but lighter in weight comparing
  • IP68 water and dust resistant
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back panel
  • White, Black, Platinum colors
  • faster and more efficient Snapdragon 821
  • additional 64GB model
  • upgraded dual 13MP sensors with dual-LED flash
  • lower 5MP selfie camera but with wider 100-degree angle, smaller aperture at f/2.2
  • runs on latest LG UX 6.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat(camera and multitasking feature)
  • 500mAh more battery

The spec sheet does not show much of a significant difference – that’s because the biggest change is seen on the design itself.

By removing the modular feature, the LG6 boasts its sleek and slim profile with FullVision display that continues to rounded screen edges for a more immersive viewing experience.
