The Korean manufacturer LG has always boasted of the great resistance of its new flagship. The new LG G6 has a metal frame and rounded edges to make it more resistant to any situation or blow, but until today only had the IP68 certification that only guaranteed the resistance to water and dust. Now it has a new certification that confirms the durability of the device.
The LG G6 has achieved the military standard of the United States MIL-STD 810G that guarantees that we are before a very resistant device that should withstand strong falls, high temperatures, and very adverse situations.
LG G6 manages to certify its durability
LG informs that its flagship has passed without problems 14 types of tests in durabilities such as falls, immersion, low pressure, solar radiation, temperature shock, high and low temperatures both coated and uncovered, vibration, humidity, fog Salt, sand and dust, and rain. The MIL-STD 810G certification qualifies for LG G6 for government and military use in the United States.
In some of the tests the LG G6 was four times under a salt fog with a density of 5% for 4 hours, it was able to operate for more than two hours in temperatures between -33 ° C and -21 ° C, and survived exposure to Dust and sand for one hour at a normal temperature and another hour at high temperatures.
LG G6 withstands high temperatures very well thanks to the implementation of the thermal tube designed to disperse heat and a space inside the equipment that allows air circulation to reduce the processor temperature by 6 to 10%.
The LG G6 battery has also been tested with more than 20 demanding behavior tests in situations of high temperature, penetration or shock resistance. Its battery was successfully exposed to temperatures of 150 ° C, 15% more than the international standard (130 ° C) and survived a crash test whereby the object of 9.1 kg fell from a height of 61 cm on the device. LG has added a wider and more stable separation between the electrodes to avoid the risk of short circuit and combustion that is now so much feared.
Its great resistance to the blows is thanks to its strong and light metal frame of AL6013 that is the same that the airplanes use by their high resistance to damages and blows. In addition, thanks to their rounded edges they disperse the impacts of falls much better.
Finally, its IP68 certification ensures that the device is completely sealed to be able to submerge to 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes and to withstand any type of dust.
