Dropping the modular design and introducing the unique Full Vision display, next to a full-metal unibody with protection from water and dust seem to have been smart choices since 400,000 G6 units have been pre-ordered in South Korea in just four days.

Last year was tough for LG, since its two high-end products, namely the LG V10 and LG G5, failed to meet the expectations of the company's heads and shareholders. Now, the new LG flagship is already official, and it looks like the G6 is what the company's mobile business needed to get back in the game.

LG G6 made its debut last month, at this year's Mobile World Congress trade show that took place in Barcelona. The strongest selling points of this flagship are its 5.7-inch, 18:9 ratio screen that LG decided to name Full Vision, the dual 13 MP rear camera setup, as well as the metal unibody design that is compliant with the IP68 and MIL-STD-810G standards.

According to LG, no less than 400,000 G6 units have been pre-ordered in South Korea in four days. However, the company's officials declined to unveil the global G6 pre-order figures. Pre-ordering customers receive free cases and a one-year screen replacement service.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
