It seems LG wants an exquisite palate for its next flagship smartphone LG 6. The company has already touted much about the anticipated LG G6. And today LG announced that it will be giving the new LG G6 to selected users under its Preliminary Experiment Group. The users will be selected in Korea between February 15 and 24. With this ‘trial-strategy’ the company plans to collect feedback from the consumers ahead of the official LG G6 launch.
LG has announced that it will select 210 users and the winners from the trial program will get the new LG G6 free of cost.
LG has also put out a separate teaser with Android Central, a pinkish-purple placard that reads, “Reliability. Check, Check, Check.” The tagline in the teaser further says,” Witness the next generation smartphone brought to you first by LG.” The teaser might likely be associated with the device software as the company’s previous flagship have suffered from bootloop issues.
LG recently confirmed that the LG G6 will have a Quad DAC chip (digital to analog converter) similar to the LG V20. The LG G6 however will have an upgraded Quad DAC system that will control the left and right channels separately. LG claimed that the new Quad DAC will lower the distortion level to 0.0002% and offer clear audio experience to the users.
The LG G6 will be announced at MWC conference on February 26. The upcoming flagship will feature a 5.7-inch (2,880×1,440 pixels) QHD+ LCD display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It will have a pixel density of 564ppi. The phone is expected to come with water resistance and Google Assistant onboard. The LG G6 might either have a matte finish or glossy back design. The phone is tipped to sport a dual-camera and non-removable battery.
Rumours suggest that the LG G6 will go on sale in Korea on March 9 with the launch in U.S. following in the later month on April 7.
