A slew of smartphones were announced at MWC 2017, and it seems like LG’s brand new flagship – the LG G6 – is the first to arrive in Malaysia. However, it’s not officially brought in by LG itself, which explains the G6’s rather high asking price.
The LG G6 is brought into Malaysia by none other than DirectD; the company clarified that its units of the G6 are from Korea. Three colours are available from the retailer: Astro Black, Mystic White, and Ice Platinum. As for retail price, DirectD is offering the G6 for…RM3,899.
For the sake of comparison, the G6 goes for 899,800 South Korean won in its home country: that comes up to about RM3,565. In retrospect, DirectD’s retail price of the G6 is actually not too bad considering other factors that will drive up the G6’s price tag.
On paper, the G6 doesn’t exactly have the best hardware for a 2017 flagship smartphone, but its unique 5.7-inch 2880 x 1440 18:9 display with very minimal bezels is one of its most impressive aspects. The G6 also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, two 13MP rear cameras – a wide-angle lens and a normal one – a 5MP front-facing shooter, IP68 rating, as well as a modest 3,300mAh battery.
If you’re keen to get your hands on the LG G6, you can place your order on DirectD’s online store. Alternatively, the G6 can also be purchased from DirectD’s physical outlets in Subang Jaya and Petaling Jaya; just note that DirectD itself will be providing the warranty for this device.
