Rumors have already been brewing regarding the possibility that LG will be introducing its next flagship device, the G6, just in time for this year’s Mobile World Congress, which will be held in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain, starting on February 27th until March 2nd.
Two of the most prominent brands in the world of mobile are looking to bring fully functioning foldable smartphone devices to life as early as this year. As reported by the Korea Herald, South Korea’s biggest phone makers, Samsung and LG, both have plans to release bendable handsets in 2017.
It appears so. As seen on the official YouTube channel of LG, the South Korean tech giant has posted a new video, which goes about teasing its upcoming flagship device for this year, the G6. The 45 second long teaser ends with the launch month -- February 2017.
As reported by South Korea based tech website IT Times, LG is said to be planning to turn its next upcoming flagship device, the G6, into the first phablet in the whole world to feature a 5.7 inch QHD+ LCD display screen with an aspect ratio of 2:1.
When LGreleased its current flagship device, the G5, last year, it was seen as sort of a departure or an innovative approach on the part of the South Korean phone maker, especially with regards to the modular design of the handset.
Here is some piece of news that should interest those looking to purchase a new phablet that comes with a stylus -- LG showcased a new phablet offering called the LG Stylo 3 (outside the United States, the handset is called the LG Stylus 3) during this year’s Consumer Electronics Show being held in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada. The South Korean tech giant had actually already announced five new smartphone devices even before the CES 2017 officially started, and the Stylo 3 appears to be one of the more interesting handsets.
Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features.
LG’s flagship device, the G5, officially becomes the first mobile device not made by Google to get updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, the newest version of the world’s most widely used mobile operating system. LG is looking to launch a worldwide roll out of its Android Nougat update to G5 units, but almost certainly, G5 owners who are based in South Korea will be the first to receive the software update.
Two of the biggest names in the smartphone industry are investing significantly in OLED display screens in order to win new orders for Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 8. Combined, Samsung and LG are investing about $11.3 billion in flexible OLEDs, as reported by Business Korea.
