LG has launched a new variant of the LG G6 in South Korea. Despite what its name suggests, the LG G6+ isn’t actually a bigger device than the standard G6; it’s just packed with more features, including more storage and a Quad DAC.
Previously, only the Asian variant of the LG G6 ships with a Quad DAC. North American units of the G6, on the other hand, excludes the DAC for wireless charging support. Now, the LG G6+ combines these two features, making for a more feature-packed smartphone. LG, however, says that only certain countries will receive the G6+ with support for wireless charging.
Aside from that, the G6+ comes with more RAM and storage too: it ships with up 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. There are also three new colours of the flagship phone: Optical Astro Black, Optical Marine Blue, and Optical Terra Gold. LG is bundling a pair of “premium” earphones from B&O PLAY with the G6+ as well.
Unfortunately, other specifications of the G6+ are identical to the standard G6. It’s still packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, a 5.7-inch QHD+ Full Vision display, a dual 13MP rear camera setup, and a 3,300mAh battery.
LG also mention that there will be a software update for the LG G6 that will add new features such as Face Print – LG’s own facial recognition technology – and Low Power Consumption. This update and the LG G6+ will start shipping sometime in July 2017.
