The very first render of the LG G6 was leaked on the web today, and as you can tell, it reveals a design that seems very similar to the current G5. In fact, there is basically no major difference between the G5 and the G6 from the rear, at least based on the leaked render. The only difference we can notice, is that the G6 will come with two individual volume rocker buttons on the side, instead of a single button on the G5.
In terms of dimensions, the G6 is going to be identical to the G5 in terms of height at 149.4mm but it will be slightly narrower at 72.43mm. The source of the leak suggests the handset will also boast of a thinner profile, although exact numbers haven’t been shared yet. Unfortunately, the render doesn’t help confirm (or deny) recent reports which suggest LG is doing away with the modular design concept for the G6.
Based on previous rumors, we expect the LG G6 to feature a highly reflective material at the back, and a metal frame in the middle. The G6 will reportedly be the first LG flagship to offer wireless charging support, which is probably the main reason why it won’t have a metal back. It is likely to be water resistant as well, another feature that we haven’t yet seen on an LG flagship. As reported yesterday, LG is planning to announce the G6 in late February, possibly at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona.
