LG G6 images leak design ahead of MWC reveal


LG is going to be one of the brands to watch at MWC 2017. The LG G6 design has been on plenty of consumers’ minds, and we may have just gotten a glimpse of half of the handset ahead of its official debut.

MWC 2017 is shaping up to be one of the bigger show in recent memory despite one missing handset. Earlier today we got confirmation that Samsung won’t launch the Galaxy S8 at the show, and while they could easily change their mind, LG is looking to take advantage of their absence. The LG G6 should get a lot of attention, and some of that will be due to its new design which may have just been leaked.

The Verge has obtained an image that’s said to be the LG G6 although we can just see the top half of the handset. That’s enough to let us know some things have changed as this one has a metal shell and is more along the lines of the Galaxy or HTC 10 from the side. That means we’ll get metal and glass although the battery will be fixed and their modular ideas are going the way of the dinosaur.

On the back of the smartphone, things are said to stay the same with a Dual camera and Fingerprint sensor setup in a similar position. They claim the smartphone will have a screen-to-bezel ratio higher than 90% with super slim bezels and an aspect ratio of 2:1. It will be a 5.7-inch panel and the handset will sport a 3.5mm headphone jack and be waterproof as well.

It appears as if LG will shake things up in the design department this year, and we imagine a more solid handset is something plenty of consumers can get behind. The bottom bezels are said to be as slim as the top, which means we will see a glut of flagships with high screen-to-body ratios this year. That’s not a bad thing, especially if you are in line for an upgrade soon. Stay tuned, as we expect more LG G6 design leaks to roll in before the big reveal at MWC next month.
