LG Electronics is hyping its upcoming LG G6 smartphone, in the wake of Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 overheating fiasco.
The upcoming LG G6 will "raise the level of safety and quality standards," LG's press team told the Korea Herald on Sunday. It's set to debut at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona next month -- up against Samsung's Galaxy S8 and others.
To achieve higher standards, LG said the LG G6 will feature copper heat pipes that have high thermal conductivity to remove heat from the device. It's a technique used in laptops and desktops to minimize the chance of overheating.
LG told the Korea Herald it has redesigned the new smartphone to give more space between components to disperse heat.
LG will be looking to capitalize off Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 missteps. LG is the second-largest handset manufacturer in South Korea behind Samsung.
