MWC 2017 may not see the introduction of Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S8, but there’s another device that’s more than ready to take its place: the LG G6. Ahead of its launch next month at MWC 2017, the first official image of the G6 has made it onto the internet.
This first look at the LG G6 came from The Verge, and along with the image, some key specifications of the upcoming flagship smartphone have been revealed as well. Not surprisingly, the G6 is not a modular phone like the LG G5; the battery of the former is not removable too.
Other than that, the G6 will also have a unconventional 5.7-inch 2:1 aspect ratio display. This is coupled with very minimal bezels too, which makes for a rather impressive screen-to-body ratio of over 90%. For the sake of comparison, the Xiaomi Mi Mix with its bezel-less display has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3%.
Aside from the display, the G6 is also said to be made entirely out of glass and metal; this should give the device a premium look and feel. It’s worth noting that the G6 is expected to be water-resistant too along with a headphone jack. Also, the G6 will very likely retain the dual-camera system and rear fingerprint sensor of its predecessor.
These early information on the LG G6 are certainly exciting, especially its unconventional display; it’ll be interesting to see what other new features LG will bring to the table with its latest flagship. The G6 will be officially unveiled at MWC 2017 on 26 February.
