LG wastes no time when it comes to researching new products for its future smartphones most representative of each year. In every generation, they seek to include something new resulting, in addition, differential with respect to his rivals. We have already seen in previous generations how came to include curved screens in your LG G Flex and G Flex 2, which unfortunately they have been discontinued.
After a pause in this meter curved screens, LG was determined to include one of these in its next flagship, the LG G6, and thus return to the road (at least as far as the curvature of the screen) which marked the deceased family Flex. But it seems that, finally, the terminal will come with an LCD screen flat like a table (probably of type IPS).
The main reason that is speculated to not include this curved screen is that LG Display (responsible for such screens) would be unable to provide enough screens OLED for LG G6. Given that until the second half of the 2017 will not install new equipment for the production of screens (and thus able to provide sufficient), you wouldn’t in time release of the G6.
The Korean manufacturer could manufacture enough panels OLED if it wasn’t because It is responsible for providing screens to Apple for its Watch 2, which seems that it is having considerable success. This fact together with the lack of sufficient equipment are responsible for that LG G6 will have to settle for an ordinary LCD screen.
Still, there will be more changes with respect to what was expected
LG, in addition, was developing a technology of resonant magnetic load, allowing you to use the Wireless charging of several terminals to a distance of 2 or 3 cm away from the charging station. However, said charging mode nor would arrive in time, which would give LG time to improve this technology.
In fact, other companies have achieved that resonant magnetic charging technology allow charging to devices that are at a distance of 7 cm. In addition, they would have increased the power of the load of the 5W which were standardized to the 7W. We could see this new technology in the still distant LG G7.
A change that it might face a LG G6 more would be building material, leaving aside the aluminium to give a tempered glass finish, at least this is the finish that is being given in its planning phase. However, this does not mean that the terminal will end up being glass, LG could bounce back.
Is not yet known if the Korean manufacturer will “kill” the modular accessories in the LG G6 or continue with the philosophy which started with the LG G5. In spite of the manufacturer, their first top of the coming year will not come loaded with as many innovations as I wanted, and that is something that can harm them if they do not begin to compete on prices with more direct rivals.
