We are just a few weeks from the official announcement of LG’s new flagship smartphone, the G6. And now a photo has surfaced, showing us the upcoming device.
What is the most noticeable in the picture is the all-new glass back of the LG G6 which surely does look nice but also marks the end of the days of replaceable batteries in LG’s flagship G lineup. This also means that we can say goodbye to LG’s disputable implementation of a modular design. The back of the device houses the double cameras, a flash module, a fingerprint scanner and a G6 logo. What is quite interesting, though, is that this time around both camera lenses look identical. This could suggest a change in how the two cameras operate with the wide-angle photos possibly replaced by a different feature. The back of the device is curved on all edges so the phone should sit nicely in the hand. Nearly all of this fits in with the previous leaks, making the rumoured features much more probable.
The G6 will be announced during MWC 2017, on February 26, giving LG an edge over Samsung which will announce the Galaxy S8 slightly later. LG’s flagship is expected to come with Snapdragon 835 CPU and 6 GB of RAM. Sadly it will most probably retain a mono speaker but at least it will feature a headphone jack. There is also an unconfirmed rumour about the G6 featuring the Google Assistant.
