By Nens Mitchell , Updated Dec 04, 2016 07:18 PM EST

After the LG G5 stunned the smartphone industry with its DSLR-like camera lenses, the anticipation for the LG G6 continues to build up because many are excited to know what new features LG will introduce. The next installment is expected to come up with another first for smartphones.

LG G6 features

Rumors suggest that the LG G6 will be released with a 5GB of RAM. This is said to be the same RAM as the latest iPhone releases and the Samsung Galaxy S7.

An iris scanner may also be added in the LG G6 to improve its security features. This will be a welcome addition to many LG customers who have long waited for this development.

Also, the phone could stick to the flat display of earlier models instead of introducing a curved screen. It could sport either a Snapdragon 830 or 835 chipset then run on Android Nougat 7.0.

LG Pay capability

The upcoming LG G6 is also thought to come with an LG Pay feature which is similar to Samsung Pay. Owners of the LG device can simply use their phones and magnetic card readers to pay for purchases in stores.

Aside from these exciting features and offerings, the LG G5 may also offer removable batteries, just like the previous offering. Developers from the LG team believe having a battery that can be replaced is crucial especially after the problem with the Galaxy Note 7.

Release date

Its release date is projected to be during the first quarter of next year. The device hopes to make it up for the shortcomings of the LG G5 which was packed with great features and an amazing camera but still failed to grab the interest of users and the sales target LG wanted.

Many thought that the modular design of the LG G5 was one of its greatest assets but could also be the main reason users hesitated to buy the device. What features do you think the LG G6 should offer to customers?
