The LG G6 has been branded as a worthy alternative for folks who find the Samsung Galaxy S8 price a bit too steep. The former sports a gorgeous design and key features most flagships carry to date. Only a couple of months out in the market, the G6 will be getting a couple of variants soon in the form of LG G6 Plus and LG G6 Pro.

The first thing that comes to mind would be the striking features that set the LG G6 apart from the Plus and Pro variants. Sadly, the changes may disappoint those looking for more power or groundbreaking technology that normally sets main flagships from other members of the product line.

The only difference with the LG G6 Plus is that it will offer customers an additional 128 GB of internal memory and wireless charging. The added storage space should make sense, particularly for those planning to put the extra wide-angel camera to good use. The wireless charging, on the other hand, is a feature absent from the original LG G6, Phone Arena reports. It will reportedly carry a suggested price of US890 (AU$1,205).

The LG G6 Pro, on the other hand, is presenting itself as a toned-down version of the main LG G6 flagship. The only noteworthy (yet disappointing) change is that it comes with half the storage capacity of the original 32 GB, though costs are cheaper at US$700 (AU$952).

As one can see, the addition of the LG G6 Plus and LG G6 Pro leaves a lot to be desired. The Korean company has added the two models seemingly directed towards the low-end market. Compared to the usual strategy of other brands, LG may be broadening the product line to offer the consumer market options in case the LG G6 price tag is still a bit out of the budget.

The LG G6 Plus and LG G6 Pro are reportedly set to launch by the end of June and offered worldwide, according to ET News. The two new derivative models will be sold under the X-line, low-end offerings that should not be confused with the traditional high-end tactics by other phone companies.

For the benefit of those unfamiliar with the LG G6, this is the company’s latest flagship offering, which most feel is a worthy alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S8. Among the striking features the LG G6 has to offer include a 5.7-inch display (2880x1440 pixels), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC with Adreno 530 GPU, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 2 TB via microSD), a 13 MP main camera, 5 MP front-facing shooter and a non-removable 3,300 mAh battery. It comes with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
