This is LG's G6 

lg_g6_v.0.jpg

Quote

Having abandoned the modular design of last year’s G5, LG looks set to prioritize design this year, with our source indicating that the G6 will be made entirely out of glass and metal — a final and conclusive departure from the unpleasant plastic that characterized the company’s previous flagship devices. The G6 will have a headphone jack and is expected to be waterproof as well. Its battery, however, will no longer be replaceable.

Coming February 26th

90% Screen to body ratio

5.7inch screen

Headphone jack

Glass and metal body

Dual rear cameras

Water resistance

No SD expansion

Non-removable battery

Android Nougat

Snapdragon 821???!!

 

Looking good! LG really needs this one to be a success so it looks like they've pulled out all the stops. Hopefully they didn't make any stupid compromises like a small battery or a bad camera.

a promise of no boot loop? 

no screen burn in? 

No SD unfortunately.

Hopefully! Didn't realise the G5 had those problems!

Wow. It looks so ... Samsung ... But looking good nevertheless.

Sad. just sad. Even my s5 neo has it... For a content creator people who likes taking videos otg an sd card is handy though if camera is shit then maybe not. Apple didn't put any sd slot in their iphones anyway

No SD? Well that's a bummer. And no replaceable battery? That is not good. Also all other sources stated it would 5.2-5.3 so how come it's this big?

What I'm interested at is:

1. Will it have the unlock key on the back?

2. Have they implemented the fingerprint sensor below the front glass?

3. Will it have OLED finally?

If so, this is my upgrade in June.

I feel, without the SD in my S7e I would have run out of space long ago.

I'd say probably yes on 1 and 2. OLED is still in shortage because of Samsung so I wouldn't hold your breath for the last one.

Galaxy S6 all over again


hello!

is it me you're looking for?

ᴾC SᴾeCS ᴰoWᴺ ᴮEᴸoW

Spoiler

Desktop: X99-PC

CPU: i7 5820k

Mobo: X99 Deluxe

Cooler: Dark Rock Pro 3

RAM: 32GB DDR4
GPU: GTX 1080

Storage: 1TB 850 Evo, 1TB HDD, bunch of external hard drives
PSU: EVGA G2 750w

Peripherals: Logitech G502, Ducky One 711

Audio: Xonar U7, O2 amplifier (RIP), HD6XX

Monitors: 4k 24" Dell monitor, 1080p 24" Asus monitor

 

Laptop:

-Overkill Dell XPS

Fully maxed out early 2017 Dell XPS 15, GTX 1050 4GB, 7700HQ, 1TB nvme SSD, 32GB RAM, 4k display. 97Whr battery :x 
Dell was having a $600 off sale for the fully specced out model, so I decided to get it :P

 

-Crapbook

Fully specced out early 2013 Macbook "pro" with gt 650m and constant 105c temperature on the CPU (GPU is 80-90C) when doing anything intensive...

A 2013 laptop with a regular sized battery still has better battery life than a 2017 laptop with a massive battery! I think this is a testament to apple's ability at making laptops, or maybe how little CPU technology has improved even 4+ years later (at least, until the recent introduction of 15W 4 core CPUs). Anyway, I'm never going to get a 35W CPU laptop again unless battery technology becomes ~5x better than as it is in 2018.

Apple knows how to make proper consumer-grade laptops (they don't know how to make pro laptops though). I guess this mostly software power efficiency related, but getting a mac makes perfect sense if you want a portable/powerful laptop that can do anything you want it to with great battery life.

Nice design but farkkk no sd card or replacable battery. LG lost its unique selling feature :(


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

I'm pretty sure that LG has the capacity and tech to make OLED for their phones, I mean they have the best OLED tech out there. Especially after G5 which sold so bad they had to reorganize the whole department.

It's probably gonna be the same story with G2/G3. After criticism, the returned it with G3. I'm expecting it'll be here again with G7.

Samsung holds almost a monopoly in smartphone OLED panels. LG has a great TV OLED division but I can't think of any smartphones out there with an LG made OLED panel.

And it's finally time for them to start doing it. I don't have sources, but I'm more than positive they can do it. 

 

And I hope they will give us at least a small part of DAC godness from V20.

I doubt it will happen again. Them old men up there only see the iPhones' success and attribute it to every design aspect of the iPhone. Including all the backwards features. Its happened to Samsung and some manufacturers are even going the no headphone jack route.

 

It does not help that people are sheep and will accept whatever is sold.

I liked it when they had the volume rocker at the back of the phone. After that change, to me it felt like the LG series followed the crowd.. It's still a good phone but i liked the uniqueness.

The thing is, if they don't need the features, I don't see a problem. I for once never used the SD, and 64GB is plenty for me, and I've had a single battery issue in 3 years owning it, but it's not that hard to change the battery yourself.

Still rocking it, hopefully the G6 will be a worthy upgrade. If not, time to change brands. Sadly, the volume buttons which were the best feature imo seem to be stuck on the side. G5 all over again. 

 

Holly shit I just noticed 90% STB ratio. G2 had 75.9% and that was almost as high as we ever saw.

My G2 just got slow really fast... It would be sad if they just made a updated G5, the G5 was a good phone, but I don't want it because they moved the volume buttons on the side again...

Well since they moved it to the side anyway might as well try it because well on any other phone, it would probably be the same. To me nowadays, phone brands aren't really much different from each other. It is like they are all going towards this one global design structure. Either that or they are running out of ideas.

Yeah, the main reason why I skipped it. Was thinking on getting V20 perhaps but it never launched in Europe, because reasons, but I'm in a huge need of an upgrade. My G2 is still rocking pretty good, it aged like Sean Connery if I may add.

I think they are running out of ideas, a lot of phones look the same today. I like the things LG normally does to their andriod, but last time I used a LG phone was 1½-2 years ago...

Yep I was also looking forward to the V20, but they didn't launch it in EU. I am also in need of an upgrade, my phone (lumia 930) gets insanely hot and restarts 2-3 times a day

Well if you end up buying the G6, feel free to inform me how it is.
