Even though earlier rumors suggested that the LG G6 will feature the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset, latest details claimed that the buyout by Samsung of all the initial batch of Snapdragon 835 chips for the Samsung Galaxy S8 will force LG to use the Snapdragon 820 chipset in the upcoming LG G6.
Adding support to those details, today we see a new LG device registered in the database of popular benchmark application, GeekBench. The LG device with model number H871 displayed in the Geekbench database shows a device powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM.
Even though the Snapdragon 820 mentioned in the benchmark above is a slightly upgraded one from the last year’s chip, it still doesn’t give a huge performance difference when compared to last year’s LG G5.
Don’t get disappointed. At this point, we are not sure whether this device is actually the LG G6 or not. The LG H871 also could be a “Compact” or “Lite” variant of the LG G6 after all.
The latest leaks regarding the looks, specs, and features of the G6 have gained LG some much-needed hype in 2017, therefore LG needs to meet a lot of expectations this time.
Moreover, latest reports on the LG G6 suggests that the device specifications will vary depending on the region. The European and North American markets will see 6GB of RAM in the LG G6 whereas the rest of the markets will receive the 4GB variant.
