LG G6+ with 128GB storage & Qi wireless charging and LG G6 32GB unveils

When LG G6 announced last February 2017 at the Mobile World Congress expo, there are only one storage available, the 64GB; however, the Korean company announced that the flagship phone now comes in 32GB variant and the bigger 128GB storage. The latter will be called the “LG G6+“. However, the RAM remains at 4GB. No improvements on the LG G6 32GB except the storage capacity.

Qi wireless charging is now included, hence, any cables or any adapters are no need to use. Just simply place the phone on the wireless pad. Now, in case you didn’t know how it simply works, here are the five steps:


  • The main voltage of the wireless pad converts to a high frequency alternating current.
  • This alternating current sends to the transmitter coil on the wireless pad by transmitter circuit.
  • An electromagnetic field creates by alternating the current flow in the transmitter coil and extends to the receiver coil (the device).
  • The electromagnetic field generates current into the receiver coil of the phone.
  • The said current in the receiver coil of the phone converts into direct current by the receiver circuit, which means, the charging of the phone will go through.

In addition, the first major software update of the original LG G6 will be available next month, as the company revealed also yesterday. Three main notable features are included in the next update for better user experience.

  1. Face Print – an alternative method of fingerprint scanner. This facial recognition technology allows the user to unlock the phone by holding it on their faces without touching any buttons. Take note that it will not affect the handset’s battery life.
  2. Low Power Consumption – a new feature that collects data by means of sensors and wireless connections. What’s more better is that it does not affect the performance of the device, hence, it will be more efficient for long battery life.
  3. Covered Lens – an alert notification that notifies the user if their hand is on the lens of the camera before it capture an image.

The new variant of LG G6 now comes with an unknown model of premium B&O (Bang & Olufsen) headphones in retail package. Availability and pricing are yet to be announced.
