South Korean smartphone brand LG who launched its flagship phone LG G6 last month for Rs. 51,990 has slashed its price by Rs. 10,000 to increase the sales and also to decrease the sales of Samsung Galaxy S8. According to the Mumbai-based retailer, Mahesh Telecom, the LG G6 will be available for as low as Rs. 41,990. The discounted price will be applicable from today until June 15, 2017.
The LG G6 is a flagship phone from the company and has impressive specifications on paper. However, the device is selling for a somewhat higher price at Rs. 46,000 in Amazon India, and LG's official Indian site is still taking preorders for the phone. The price cut may be for the offline market, which is yet to be confirmed by LG officially.
LG first announced the smartphone at the MWC 2017, and the smartphone's unique feature is its QHD+ wide display. The LG G6 flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:5:9 along with a resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, clubbed with 4GB of RAM, and Adreno 530 GPU.
In India, only the 64GB variant of the device is available. And yes, the phone accepts microSD card up to 2TB. LG has added two 13MP shooters at the back, out of which one sensor captures standard RGB shots, while the other sensor captures wide-angle shots of 125-degree. The standard sensor also has Optical Image Stabilisation and can also record 4K videos.
The smartphone comes laden with Android 7.0 Nougat along with all the connectivity options such as the 4G LTE, VoLTE, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and USB Type-C 2.0 port.
LG is also touting the audio prowess of the phone as it comes with a dedicated 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC and the phone is water and dust resistant as well. The phone weighs 163 grammes and measures 7.9mm. The entire package is backed by a 3200mAh battery. Further, there's also the Reliance Jio 100GB free data offer for the device buyers.
At the price of Rs. 41,990, the LG G6 is a great phone for the people who are looking for a flagship phone with gorgeous design and display and especially out of budget for the Galaxy S8.
