The LG G6 has been on the market now for a couple of months, now LG has upped the ante announcing a “Plus” version of the phone with more storage, memory and enhanced sound.
It is not known as to why LG didn’t choose to introduce these variants when the LG G6 was officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 event in February this year. The other aspects include a fingerprint sensor, 4G LTE, NFC, USB Type-C port, and a 3300mAh battery with Qi wireless charging (LG G6+ only) and Quick Charge.
The newly launched LG G6+ will be exclusively available only in South Korea. It also has 128GB of internal storage which is obviously more than the standard variant that has 64GB of internal storage. Hence it is safe to say that the LG G6+ is the G6 which LG should have launched in the first place.
The LG G6+ and LG G6 32 GB have something that is unavailable on the regular LG G6. Everything else about the smartphone is exactly the same.
For current G6 owners, LG has also announced a software update with features including facial unlocking, a low power consumption mode, and a warning if you inadvertently cover the camera lens with a finger – apparently something that can be an issue with the G6’s wide-angle lens.
The new variant will be available in three new color options – Optical Astro Black, Optical Terra Gold and Optical Marine Blue. Pricing and specific availability will be revealed later, but from a previous leak, we believe the device will cost around $100 more than the G6. Also, there is no confirmation on whether the other markets like the US will be receiving the new LG G6 variants.
