LG G6 to use the Snapdragon 821 under the hood

LG G6 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated smartphones this year. The new handset is expected to be unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The G6 serves as LG’s strategic plan to bounce back following disappointing G5 sales figures. According to sources, LG will move away from the modular design of 2016’s G5, instead adopting a near bezel-less display, which is more traditional with the current top-tiers smartphones. Other rumored features include a dual-camera system and LG’s payment system.


According to sources, the new LG G6 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor under the hood, which goes against what we heard in previous reports that the G6 would use Snapdragon 835. This year, Snapdragon 835 processor is rumored to power Samsung’s highly anticipated smartphone, Galaxy S8 that’s believed to make its debut a few weeks after the release of LG G6.

Samsung is now mass-producing Snapdragon 835 processors for Qualcomm and the company wants to make sure that Galaxy S8 hit expected sales figures during its first week of availability thanks to its new chip. According to sources, any OEM that wants to use Snapdragon 835 on its handset will have to wait to release it weeks after Samsung Galaxy S8 comes out. So, Snapdragon 821 may be a good choice for LG G6 this year.

LG G6 will be released this February and the new handset is rumored to feature a curved OLED display, just like the current Samsung Galaxy S7, which runs counter to previous rumors claiming that LG G6 would not include OLED display thanks to supply issues. Besides, sources also say that the next LG G6 will not feature full-metal body and glass cover due to cost issues, meaning that LG G6 will come with a traditional flat-screen LCD, just like previous flagship LG phones.
