LG launches super-powered version of G6 flagship

About three months after launching its G6 flagship, LG is updating the smartphone with a few new software features, and launching a new version with a stronger set of specs, the LG G6+.

The new device is not a radical departure from its predecessor; it shares the same form factor, including that elongated 18:9 screen, and the same processor. It does, however, have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The LG G6+ will also be bundled with a pair of B&O earphones that should, ideally, take advantage of the phone’s 32-bit Quad DAC.

It’s worth noting that the original LG G6 came in several variants; in Asia, it had the Quad DAC chip, but no wireless charging; in the U.S. it was the opposite. The LG G6+ does not do much to clear this confusion as it will have both features only in certain (unspecified) markets; in some markets it will only come with the Quad DAC chip but not wireless charging.

On the software side, both the LG G6 and G6+ will get a couple of upgrades soon, including facial recognition (LG calls this Face Print), a low power consumption mode and a warning that tells the user they’ve covered their camera lens before taking a photo.

Finally, the LG G6 gets two new colors: blue and gold. As for the G6+, it will be available in black, blue, and gold.

There’s no word on the exact date for the software updates or the global availability of the new LG G6+ phone, which launches next month in Korea.
