The LG G6 is a great phone and impressed masses out there, but there’s a slight disappointment in the phone because it uses Snapdragon 821 SoC. A few weeks ago, it was rumoured that LG would launch an LG G6 Mini in coming weeks and everyone expected it to arrive with Snapdragon 835 chipset.
A report from Korean publication etnews says that LG is working on two new handsets and will release them by the end of June.
According to the report, LG will release a G6 Plus and G6 Pro to be sold alongside the LG G6. The G6 Plus would feature wireless charging capabilities and come with a larger 128GB of internal storage and a higher price at 1,000,000 Won (Roughly $891).
The G6 Pro would feature less storage space at 32GB and a slightly lower price of 790,000 Won (Roughly $704). All this while the regular G6 is priced at 899,800 Won (Roughly $801).
The pricing of both the variants also tipped. The LG G6 Plus may ship for $890 (approx. Rs. 57,600), and the G6 Pro might cost $700 (approx. Rs. 46,300). The standard LG G6 costs Rs. 51,990 in India. Moreover, both the variants might come to India as well.
Regardless, both devices are expected to launch with the Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB of RAM. As for availability, the G6 Pro and G6 Plus are said to launch in South Korea by the end of June, while being made in more markets at a later time.
Coming to the LG G6 Mini, it is said to come with a 5.4 inch quality HD display and there were some images of the phone leaked as well. But it now seems like there won’t be any G6 Mini.
It sounds more like LG will release two other G6’s with differing storage sizes, which wouldn’t really warrant different name.
The LG G6 Plus and G6 Pro will be released in the company’s homeland first and later on released in other markets as well.
