LG finally makes a G6 that doesn’t skimp on features
LG has announced a new version of its current G6 flagship phone.
The G6+ isn’t fundamentally much different to the regular G6, but it comes with 128GB of storage, new “optical marine blue” and “optical terra gold” colors, and the quad DAC only previously found in Asian variants of the phone. It’s also packaged with unspecified “premium” B&O Play earphones. The quad DAC is a legitimate upgrade to the G6’s audio performance. I’ve been using a Korean model of the phone for a while and it really does sound great, even to these not-especially-audiophile ears. The question is whether the G6+ will represent the first time this capability expands beyond Korea.
