LG recently took the wraps off the G6 flagship, a phone that has a lot of promise. While the handset is expected to be unveiled in South Korea on Friday next week, those in the U.S. and Canada can also smile as the phone has just been cleared by the FCC.
According to a listing on the certification body, the LG G6 has been listed with two model numbers that represent single-SIM and dual-SIM variants. Where the former has model number LG-H870V, the latter has model number LG-H870DSV. A closer examination of the two model numbers may further suggest that the two models may be destined for Verizon Wireless.
This is great news for LG G6 fans in the U.S. as it appears that the phone could hit the local stores earlier than thought. It was previously expected that the G6 will be available in the U.S. somewhere in April, but from the look of things, this doesn’t appear to be the case. In fact, those in Canada can be sure of the phone’s arrival very soon as Videotron has already listed the phone on its website with a “coming soon” tagline.
Unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2017, the LG G6 may prove to be the best comeback by the South Korean tech giant following the disastrous LG G5. The phone was not so bad, but it wasn’t what LG fans expected from the company. With the latest G6, the only major letdown could be the slightly older processor on board, but this doesn’t make the phone a poor performer.
To be more specific, the LG G6 is powered by a 2016 Snapdragon 821 SoC that you’ll find in the likes of Google Pixel, Pixel XL and OnePlus 3T, among others. This is paired with a 4GB RAM that should promise snappier operations. The back has a 13MP dual camera and in terms of display, you get a roomy 5.7-inch QHD+ panel with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone is kept alive by a 3300mAh non-removable battery that is charged via a USB-C port.
