Smartphone LG G6 do not will receive SoC Snapdragon 835. Instead, it will use the Snapdragon 821
Back in January we wrote that the smartphone LG G6 can not get the new Snapdragon SoC 835. Recently, these rumors were confirmed BY Geekbench. Now, however, on assumptions and speculation can finally stop.
According to a source, at CES 2017, he managed to accidentally shoot what you can see in the picture below.
As you can see, LG G6 do not will receive SoC Snapdragon 835. Instead, it will be equipped with a single-chip system Snapdragon 821. Other data say about protection from water and dust located on the rear side of the fingerprint scanner, the Full Vision screen diagonal of 5.7 inches and the audio system with four DACS, of course, if the term Quad DAC says about it.
The use of «obsolete» platforms due to the fact that all of the first batch of Snapdragon 835 reserved by Samsung for the Galaxy S8. If LG wanted to use the same SoC, she would have had to shift the release of a new smartphone in may or June. In the end, the company made a choice in favor of the platform of 2016 and early release of new products. It is difficult to say how this choice is correct. From the standpoint of the performance capabilities of the Snapdragon 821 to be missed for only a few years. But from the point of view of marketing and positioning LG G6 obviously going to lose to a competitor.
