ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The new LG G6® premium smartphone is now available for enterprise use in the U.S. When it comes to your professional needs, LG has you covered. Power through the work day with energy to spare. Look sharp and see what others simply can't. Be strong, resilient, and exceed expectations. The G6 is a smartphone, a personal assistant and a reliable device that helps you excel at all of these things and more.
"As work habits have shifted and an increasing number of professionals are using LG mobile devices in the working world, we focused on the needs of our business customer and knew we needed a reliable product with government-grade security,*" said Mike Lombardo, VP Sales & Marketing, LG MobileComm USA. "We have designed the LG G6 to be durable and water resistant, with the added benefit of a powerful battery to get you through the work day."
The LG G6 is equipped with a 5.7-inch QHD+ (2,880 x 1,440 resolution) FullVision™ display so you can see every detail clearly. The expansive display spreads across the sleek, industrial design which fits perfectly in one hand. The one-handed usability is also complemented by crisp imagery, authentic color, and the Google Assistant that helps you keep track of your schedule, business travel plans and more.
Built to Go the Extra Mile
The G6 has been tested for strength and durability, passing 14 different military-standard 810G tests** (Low Temperature, High Temperature, Humidity, Vibration, Solar Radiation, Low Pressure, Sand and Dust, Immersion, Temperature, Shock, Salt, Fog and Rain) so you can take on the toughest work days. The metal frame that wraps around the perimeter of the phone imparts solidity in style with a soft matte finish. The rounded corners of the device's body and display unify the design, while also dispersing impact energy so you can worry less about accidental drops.
Always-on Display Helps You Use Your Time Wisely
To save you time and battery power when running from one meeting to the next, the 5.7-inch display on the LG G6 offers an Always-on feature. The top one-third of the screen is always on to display the time, date, and notifications without turning on your phone so you can get the information you need at a glance.
Wireless Charging to Help You Power Through Back-to-Back Meetings
You can go until close of business on the G6's built-in 3,300 mAh Battery and refuel fast with Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0. To help simplify your life, the G6 can be charged in two different ways – wirelessly or via a USB Type C port. With the G6's wireless charging capability, you can power up quickly and conveniently when it's crunch time so there's no more fumbling around to plug in your phone or frantically searching for a power outlet. Simply place your phone on a compatible wireless charger and your phone is on its way to being refueled.
