LG is currently developing its latest flagship phone. The Korean tech company is also making the latest LG G6 phone keep the best features of its predecessor LG G5. At the same time, it is adding new features to upgrade it and will make it the best of their phones so far.

One of the most appreciated features of the G5 is its removable battery. Users, after all, like the idea of being able to remove the batteries of their devices for safety purposes. This has intensified especially after the recent Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. Aside from safety issues it also brings convenience in a way. Since this way replacing batteries are easier with spares or once they prove defective, as per Game & Guide.

Additionally, LG G6 will more than likely feature new technologies like iris recognition and mobile payment. Most of the tech geeks know that Samsung just missed its chance to make iris scanning a big part of the mobile experience when the battery fiasco of their device happened. So far there are a lot of promises in that kind of feature.

Right now the iris recognition feature is seen as a more accurate and more secure solution to biometric security compared to fingerprints. Microsoft had already implemented it thru their Windows Hello but Android and iOS haven't yet. LG has already been seen working on the hardware required for that feature.

Admirably there is one feature that keeps it distinct from the others. SlashGear reported that the module of the said hardware combines camera sensor and the iris sensor making it cost and space efficient. Though it is not sure yet where they will first implement this feature the G6 phone is still a safe bet.

For the mobile payment, it has been reported that LG has been working on it for a long time already to pit against its competitor's Samsung Pay. However instead of the original plans as was reported the company apparently changed it. According to recent reports, LG will not be relying on a physical programmable white card.

Instead, it will use Magnetic Secure Transmission or MST technology to make its LG Pay more compatible to both NFC-based and traditional swipe-based terminals. Note that this is the very same technology that Samsung uses. Aside from those features, the next flagship phone of LG might also have wireless charging, a 5.5-inch 4K display, and a Snapdragon 830 chipset that will be running an Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

LG G6 is expected to be unveiled by the first quarter of 2017 and it will be the company's attempt to appeal to customers after its LG G5 phones failed to bring in additional customers. According to sales reports the tech firm has apparently lost a lot from the poor sales of LG G5.
