Last year, LG introduced the Always-On Display feature with the G5, letting users glance at the time, date, and battery capacity without having to turn on the entire screen. It looks like the feature is going to make a comeback this year with the G6, as new leaked live images of the flagship smartphone show a prototype with the Always-On Display functionality enabled.
The second live image shows off the rear of the G6 clearly, hinting at a brushed metal back instead of a glass back that was rumored earlier. We also see a familiar horizontal dual-camera layout with the LED flash positioned in the middle. Below the dual camera setup is a circular fingerprint scanner, with a similar positioning as we saw on the G5.
The source of the latest leak has also confirmed some of the rumored specifications of the handset. The G6 will apparently be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core SoC and feature a 5.7-inch display with Quad HD resolution. In terms of memory, the smartphone will disappointingly ship with a mere 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard expandable storage. Keeping the lights on will be a 3200mAh capacity battery, a slight improvement when compared to its predecessor. The smartphone will also include a Quad-DAC for superior audio performance and be water resistant. LG will be announcing the G6 on February 26th at a pre-MWC 2017 event in Barcelona.
