LG’s G6 Launches In PH On April 18

LG’s approach yields a big-screened phone that’s not much bigger than their 5.2-inch G5

LG’s newest flagship will be arriving sooner rather than later

It’s been a busy month for brands this April, as top-tier manufacturers have chosen this month to announce the arrival of their phones in the PH market. After Samsung, ASUS and Huawei, it’s now LG’s turn to give us a date for the arrival of their flagship G6 smartphone and its unique 18:9 aspect ratio.

LG G6 Specs

  • 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor
  • Qualcomm Adreno 530 GPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 5.7-inch QHD+ Fullvisison display , 2880Ă—1440 resolution, Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • 32GB/64GB expandable storage, via microSD
  • Twin 13-megapixel rear camera, f/1.8 aperture, OIS, LED flash
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Dual SIM
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Fingerprint scanner, IP68 certification
  • 3300mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 Nougat

LG has officially announced that the new phone will be available for pre-order starting April 17 all the way to the 30th, with the local launch happening on April 18. No final date for the releasing of retail units to people who pre-ordered the device as of yet, but you can expect LG to ship their devices by May to combat their perennial rival, Samsung.

The phone is priced at Php 37,990, and customers who pre-order the phone will get LG’s Tone Infinim that’s valued at Php 7,490, as well as an LG G6 case valued at Php 1,500 and an extended one-year warranty. Sadly, the LG G6 arriving in the PH will only have 32GB of storage built-in, which may be a deal breaker for people shopping for a high-end, flagship device.
