Recently, LG has sent out a vague invitation to an event on the 26th of February in Barcelona. Chances are, the company will be unveiling a new device for MWC 2017, and it’s likely to be the successor to the LG G5.
The rectangular-shaped invitation sent out by LG had the words “see more, play more” written on it. Looking back at the Korean company’s invite to the LG G5’s launch event for MWC 2016 – which revolves around “play begins” – there’s definitely a shared theme here.
Not long after the invitation was sent out, alleged images of the LG G6 surfaced on the internet. If these leaked images show the final design of the G6, it appears to have very minimal top and bottom bezels. In retrospect, the “see more” part of the invitation sent out by LG does make a lot of sense if the G6 offers a high screen-to-body ratio.
As for specifications, it still remains to be seen what’s under the hood of the LG G6. Rumours, however, are suggesting that the G6 will be packing a 5.7-inch 1440p display, a water-resistant body, as more likely than not, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor. Other than that, there’s a good chance the G6 won’t be a modular phone like its predecessor.
The LG G5 may not had been as successful as LG hoped for, but things may change with the LG G6. We’ll find out just what the G6 has to offer come 26 February 2017.
