The handset which was released around the beginning of the month is getting this deep price-cut most likely to keep it competitive against arch-rival Samsung’s Galaxy S8 series handset. This is most likely since the LG G6 uses the older Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC and thus is not exactly the cream of the flagships expected to land this year. The LG G6 though still gets the rest of the basics in place, featuring 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card (up to 2 TB). It features a dual camera setup at the rear of the device with dual 13-megapixel sensors and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper up front. The LG G6 did lead the current generation of smartphones in embracing the 18:9 display aspect ratio being the first of the devices to feature this radical new aspect ratio, dubbed as the FullVision display.
Apart from this the device comes packed with a 3300mAh battery which has support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology with a USB Type-C charger in place. The smartphone also supports wireless charging and is certified IP 68 compliant for dust and water ingress protection. On the OS front, the LG G6 is running a flavour of Android v.7.1.1, Nougat.
Alongside the price-cut, LG India is also offering some great bundles for potential buyers in the form of up to 100 GB free data on Reliance’s Jio network. Buyers also get 50% off on the purchase of LG’s Tone Active+ HBS-A100 Bluetooth headset worth ₹9,990. Currently, interested buyers can pick up the LG G6 for ₹41,999 on Amazon.in which is listed on LG’s site as an official retail partner.
