The LG G6 utilizes a metal chassis with a glass backing, and is IP68-rated for water and dust-resistance. It is available in black, white, and silver-color finishes. The G6 features a 1440p FullVision IPS LCD display, with a diagonal size of 5.7 inches. LG stated that it intended for the G6 to be a large-screened phone that would still be compact and feasible for one-handed use; the display uses a 2:1 (marketed as 18:9) aspect ratio that is taller than the 16:9 displays used by the majority of smartphones. The G6 was also designed with slim bezels, and is slightly smaller in size than the G5. To allow for reinforcement around the corners of the display, the display panel itself has rounded edges. The display also supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision high-dynamic-range video.
The G6 utilizes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 system-on-chip (instead of the newer Snapdragon 835) with 4 GB of RAM. It will be offered in models with 32 GB and 64 GB of internal storage, expandable via SD card. The G6 includes a 3300 mAh battery; unlike the G5, it is not user-accessible. U.S. models will support wireless charging, and all models will support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. Models in selected Asian markets will include quad Digital-to-analog converters (DAC) to enhance sound output. The G6 drops the modular accessory system of the G5, which had been panned by critics. Similarly to the G5, the G6 features dual rear-facing cameras, with standard and wide-angle sensors. Unlike the G5, where the wide-angle sensor had a smaller megapixel size, both cameras utilize 13-megapixel sensors.
LG G6 ships with Android 7.0 "Nougat" and LG UX. Some of LG's in-house applications have enhanced landscape modes intended to complement the 2:1 display; the camera app features shooting modes designed for use with square, 1:1 aspect ratio photos, and can display a camera roll sidebar when taking traditional 4:3 photos. The screen size also complements Android Nougat's native split-screen mode for running multiple apps at once. LG announced that it would provide a promotional "G6 Game Collection" offer with US$200 worth of in-game content for six games on Google Play Store (including Crossy Road and Temple Run 2), oriented towards those built for one-handed play and optimizations for the aspect ratio.
CNET contrasted the G6 from the previous year's G5, as well as its main launch competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S8. The design of the G6 was complimented for being more elegant and expansive than the G5, albeit less elegant than the similar but curved design of the Galaxy S8. LG was panned for its shift back to a non-removable battery, but the battery itself was praised for having a larger capacity than that of the G5. It was acknowledged that while the G6 does not include the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 831 system-on-chip (making the Galaxy S8 perform better on benchmarks than the G6), there was no discernible difference in performance in real-world usage between them. The cameras were also praised for producing "sharp and vibrant images", with quality on par with other recent flagship phones. In conclusion, CNET felt that the G6 could appeal to users that had lost their trust in Samsung following the recall of the Galaxy Note 7, arguing that "while it doesn't have anything novel or buzzworthy, it's LG's most marketable and widely-appealing phone yet."
