LG has officially unveiled its latest flagship device, the G6, and its most eye catching features include extra tall display screen (it comes with an aspect ratio of 18:9; previous LG flagship models only offered a 16:9 aspect ratio), a frame that nearly has no bezels, and water proofing capabilities. And just as rumored (and later confirmed by the South Korean tech giant), the G6 does not have a modular design, and as such, does away with a removable battery.
Reliable leaker (if there is such a thing) Evan Blass has posted a tweet that appears to show LG’s upcoming flagship device, the G6, rendered from all angles. Based on the leaked image, the smartphone is pretty much consistent with recent rumors -- the renders suggest that the G6 may sport a dual lens camera configuration, as well as a fingerprint reader on the rear side.
There is talk that the G6, the upcoming flagship device from LG, will be released on March 9th of this year in South Korea (per frequent leaker Evan Blass), and eventually reach American shores by April 7th -- well, at least according to a report published by Venture Beat, which cited planning materials it has acquired as the basis for this piece of news.
As hinted back in October of last year, Samsung is indeed looking to continue the Galaxy Note brand this year. As a matter of fact, D.J Koh, the company’s mobile chief has recently confirmed to CNET that a Galaxy Note 8 is coming store shelves in 2017.
As promised, Samsung has officially revealed the real causes of the overheating problems of its Galaxy Note 7 phablet. According to the South Korean phone maker, there were two separate issues directly attributable to the device’s battery, which led to the handset overheating and even catching fire.
Samsung may have been hoping that with the new year, it could be given a fresh start regarding its Galaxy Note lineup of phablets. But lest it forget, its Galaxy Note 7 troubles are not exactly over yet. And part of the blame is a certain number of mobile users who stubbornly still choose to hold on to their Galaxy Note 7 units.
Among mobile users based in the United States, perhaps the most popular smartphones of Samsung are those that belong to the company’s Galaxy S lineup of devices. But as expected of the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices, the South Korean phone maker has plenty more other series of handsets. Americans may have heard of the Galaxy A range or the Galaxy J range, but Samsung actually has other less well known brands.
According to a report published by Reuters, Samsung will be releasing the full results of its investigation into what caused its Galaxy Note 7 device to catch fire or even explode this coming January 23rd. The Reuters news report also stated that the phablet’s overheating problems are likely tied to battery issues, and not to any hardware or software aspect.
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.
