The LG G6 will officially use the Snapdragon 821 instead of the 835, and it’s a brilliant move

LG’s G6 flagship smartphone is expected to be officially unveiled later this month on February 26, and all signs are pointing to a very interesting piece of tech. LG is expected to ditch the modular design of 2016’s G5 in favor of a more traditional approach with a near bezel-less display. Other expected features include the likes of a dual-camera setup and LG’s own mobile payment system, but one aspect of the phone that’s been up for a bit of debate is the processor that will be powering it.
Samsung is mass-producing the Snapdragon 835 processor for Qualcomm this time around, and because of this partnership, we’ve heard reports indicating that Samsung will be hogging the 835 for its upcoming Galaxy S8 handset that’s expected to debut a few weeks after the G6. Some parties have been holding out hope the these rumors would turn out to be false and that the G6 would, in fact, get the latest and greatest from Qualcomm, but this has just been confirmed to not be the case. Likely to the dismay of many of our readers, LG’s G6 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor.
