An alleged image showing the LG G6 flagship smartphone has leaked on the web today, courtesy of the guys over at The Verge. The new render shows off a design that is very different from the G5, which means that the leaked renders of the G6 that had popped up online were actually fake.
As can be seen in the render, the G6 features a very tiny bezel on the top and curved display corners to maximize the display area. The report says the bottom bezel is impressively thin as well, being only slightly taller than the top bezel. In fact, it is suggested that the G6 will boast of a screen-to-body ratio of over 90%, putting it on the same level as the Xiaomi Mi Mix.
Confirming previous reports, The Verge report claims the LG G6 will feature a metal and glass build, similar to rival Samsung’s flagship handsets. The glass back should allow the G6 to support wireless charging, a feature that has so far been missing on LG flagship handsets.
The G6 is expected to feature a larger display than its predecessor, measuring 5.7-inches diagonally. It will also feature an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9, with 1440 x 2880 resolution. At the back, the G6 will include a dual-camera setup similar to its predecessor, as well as a circular fingerprint scanner. The 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom will be intact, so you won’t have to worry about any USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter.
LG will be unveiling the G6 at its pre-MWC press conference on February 26th.
