LG today took the wraps off an upgraded version of their G6 smartphone, the G6+. This handset comes with some welcome improvements and upgrades that should make anyone’s experience using the handset better when compared to the standard G6.
For instance, 128GB of internal storage is now available over the G6’s 64GB. LG’s infamous 32-bit Quad DAC from international variants of the G6 will also be featured in the G6+ for improved audio playback through the speaker and connected headphones. Wireless charging should also be present in this device which, if you recall, was limited to us in the States.
In addition, B&O Play headphones are included in the G6+ box. The smartphone comes in two new colors: Optical Marine Blue and Optical Terra Gold. No word on pricing yet, but it should go on sale worldwide next month.
Also arriving next month is a software update for existing G6 smartphones that includes facial unlock (similar to the Galaxy S8), an improved low power mode for better battery saving and increased fluidity throughout the experience, and a handy warning if you’re covering one of the device’s rear cameras while trying to snap a photo. Of course, this update may take a little bit to roll out to everyone, but all of you with a G6 should receive it by August (hopefully).
