Today LG has announced an upgraded version of the original G6 smartphone the G6+ which comes with more storage, new colors options and featuring additional storage and premium sound.
The new G6+ comes with an enhanced security option and user-friendlier features. New capabilities in the form of Face Print, Low Power Consumption and Covered Lens warning will be introduced to existing devices via a software update and included in all new LG G6 units sold.
Face Print is an enhanced security option developed by LG that is more convenient to use than existing facial recognition technology. With Face Print, owners can unlock the LG G6 and G6+ smartphones by simply holding the phone up to their faces without the need to press any buttons. Unlocking occurs as soon as the registered face is recognized, usually in less than one second on average. The camera is only activated when the phone is raised to the face so there is no additional battery drain when using Face Print.
Another new feature included is Low Power Consumption, is built into the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP architecture integrated in the Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile platform of the LG G6. The All-Ways Aware hub takes advantage of Google’s Contextual Hub Runtime Environment (CHRE) to sense and collect data at all times from both sensors and wireless connections to improve the user experience with third party applications, all the while using very little battery power and reducing latency.
The new LG G6+ features a 128 GB of onboard storage memory and premium earphones from B&O PLAY to take full advantage of the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC featured in the smartphone.
