LG G6+ Launched, plus goodies for existing G6 users

Like the LG G6 yeah? Heard about the new version? Well, it’s just been announced.There’s 128GB in this version and it comes with premium B&O PLAY headphones for the on-board 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC. They’ve also chucked in wireless charging in some countries.

It’ll be called the LG G6+ and will be available in “Optical Astro Black, Optical Marine Blue and Optical Terra Gold”. No exact details on availability as yet, but we’re hearing that further details will be announced next week.

Existing LG G6 owners shouldn’t feel too left out though, because an upcoming software package will add Face Print (a face recognition security system), Low Power Consumption and a Covered Lens warning. That power trickery uses the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP architecture to sense and collect data from both sensors and wireless connections to reduce battery usage.

Two new colours have also been announced for the existing LG G6. You’ll soon be able to get “Optical Marine Blue and Optical Terra Gold” which have a “lenticular film to deliver a mesmeric optical effect”. We’re guessing that’ll be something like the Honor 9 we saw on Monday.
