Korean handset-maker LG on Sunday launched the new LG G6 smartphone that comes with a variety of incremental features which includes a edge-to-edge display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and 3,300 mAh battery.

Korean handset-maker LG has launched its next flagship smartphone -- the G6 -- at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Sunday.

The G6, which runs on LG’s new 6.0 UI built on Android, will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and will draw power from a 3,300 mAh battery. But what is interesting is that LG has somehow managed to pack in a 5.7-inch FullVision display in a 5.2-inch body. The company also said that the phone will come with a new aspect ration -- 18:9 -- which will make the display look like a movie theatre screen.

In terms of optics, the G6 will come with the same setup as the G5 or the V20. The G6 will come with a dual rear camera setup with 13-megapixel wide-angle and standard lenses. The rear wide-angle lens will have a 125-degree radius. The front shooter will also support wide-angle photography upto 100-degrees. The G6, as LG claims, has a smoother video zoom and a better optical image stabilisation.

The phone that will come in three colours -- Ice Platinum, Mystic White and Astro Black -- is also IP68 and this means that the phone is dust and water resistant. On the assistant front, LG will come with the Google Assistant. The G6, which has minimal design made of metal and glass, also sports a fingerprint sensor at the back.

However, the company has not made any announcements regarding the price or the availability of the device. But if one thing is certain then the modular dream of LG has been put to rest.
