CAPABILITIES OF G6 WITH ENHANCED FEATURES AND NEW “PLUS” VERSION
Never One to Stop
Innovating, LG Pushes Out SignificantSoftware Update as
Well as First Flagship Variant SEOUL, June 19, 2017 —
Starting next month, LG (Electronics) is expanding the capabilities of its
highly regarded LG G6 with an enhanced security option and user-friendlier
features. New capabilities in the form of Face Print, Low Power Consumption and
Covered Lens warning will be introduced to existing devices via a software update
and included in all new LG G6 units sold. In addition to these upgrades, LG is
introducing a new version of the G6, the LG G6+, featuring additional storage
and premium sound.
Face Print is an
enhanced security option developed by LG that is more convenient to use than
existing facial recognition technology. With Face Print, owners can unlock the
LG G6 by simply holding the phone up to their faces without the need to press
any buttons. Unlocking occurs as soon as the registered face is recognized, usually
in less than one second on average.
The camera is only activated when the phone
is raised to the face so there is no additional battery drain when using Face
Print. Another new feature,
Low Power Consumption, is built into the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP architecture
integrated in the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ mobile platform of the LG G6.
All-Ways Aware hub takes advantage of Google’s Contextual Hub Runtime
Environment (CHRE) to sense and collect data at all times from both sensors and
wireless connections to improve the user experience with third party
applications, all the while using very little battery power and reducing
latency. Covered Lens warning
prevents shutterbugs from spoiling their own photographs with an errant digit.
The wide angle lens in the LG G6 covers a large field of view and as such, it
can sometimes capture an unwanted finger in the frame if the shooter is not careful.
This feature alerts the user with a notification on the display if a finger (or
fingers) inadvertently make it into the shot before the shutter is activated. Beyond the enhanced
software, LG is introducing two new colors for the LG G6: Optical Marine Blue
and Optical Terra Gold.
The backs of these new phones are covered with a
lenticular film to deliver a mesmeric optical effect. On the front, the
5.7-inch screen is framed in all black for a seamless, consistent look that
highlights the expansiveness of the FullVision display.
The new LG G6+
features a generous 128GB of onboard storage and premium earphones from B&O
PLAY to take full advantage of the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC featured in the
smartphone. Available in Optical Astro Black, Optical Marine Blue and Optical
Terra Gold, the turbocharged LG G6+ comes with all the innovations of the LG G6
with the addition of wireless charging in some countries.*
“LG’s G series has
always been about offering innovation and technology that we believe will
appeal to as many customers as possible,” said Juno Cho, president of LG
Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
“By expanding the G6 lineup with
differentiating features and colors, consumers will have even more options to
consider when shopping for a new smartphone.”
The exact dates of
availability of the software update and the LG G6+ will be announced locally in
