With Mobile World Congress coming up next month there is going to be a lot of stuff to see in the mobile market that will be launching later on this year, but one of the undoubtedly biggest things that will be making an official appearance is the LG G6, LG's successor to last year's LG G5 and so far, based on the rumors and leaks at least, it seems that the G6 may be one heck of a device. It's carrying a stylish new design for the outer body, it's been said that LG has dropped the modular component and will not be using it with the phone, LG has even confirmed this, and it's likely going to be packed with a lot of decent hardware.
Of course, it's not all about the LG G6 this year as Samsung's next flagship, the Galaxy S8, is set for an announcement in the near future as well, although it will be a little bit further out as Samsung is not going to be showing it off at Mobile World Congress as they did last year with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Instead, they're rumored to be announcing the device the following month with a rumored date of March 29th, which is likely when they're holding their Unpacked event.
As for what's included in both of these new devices, nothing is official, but it's said that the LG G6 will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 CPU, the same processor in the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL, while the Galaxy S8 will be bumping things up, for the U.S. version at least, to the Snapdragon 835 CPU. The LG G6 is sporting some extremely thin bezels on not just the sides but also the top and bottom of the panel, and they look to have utilized a chamfered edge for the frame, and are rumored to be ditching the removable battery in light of making the device waterproof. Samsung is said to be putting some extremely thin bezels on the Galaxy S8 as well, and they're rumored to be getting rid of the physical home button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor, which would mean that they have to place it somewhere else. The LG G6 is rumored to be using heat pipes to help get rid of heat from the inside of the device and prevent the battery as well as device from overheating, and Samsung will be adding their Bixby A.I. assistant to the Galaxy S8 while LG is rumored to be using Google Assistant in the G6. So far, both devices are shaping up to be exciting smartphones. Which one are you more excited for?
