LG has already confirmed that it will be present at MWC 2017 later this month, and the company is expected to take the wraps off its flagship G6 smartphone. In the run-up to the event, we have already come across various rumours, and the latest leak adds to the growing list.
Now, live photos of what we think are a LG G6 prototype, have been shared by DroidLife, showing the smartphone from all angles. Looking at the photos, one thing is clear that this smartphone is not a finished product. Despite that, it does confirm a couple of things like the placement of the dual-cameras and fingerprint sensor at the back.
The USB Type-C port is seen at the bottom wedged between a speaker grille and microphone hole. The front is dominated by the display with pretty slim bezels surrounding it. According to rumors, the LG G6 will sport a glass and metal body.
Based on previous rumors, the LG G6 is expected to feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, and will most likely be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipsets. Though initial rumors hinted at Snapdragon 835 chipset, fresh reports reveal that Samsung is hoarding all the chipsets for its Galaxy S8, leaving little for its rivals.
The LG G6 is also expected to feature 6GB of RAM, a battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support, and water and dust resistant capabilities. Unlike last year’s LG G5, the company has confirmed about giving up on modular-capabilities for this year’s flagship smartphone. Lastly, reports also claim that the LG G6 will be priced around 20 percent lower than the LG G5, which would be quite aggressive.
Stay tuned as we bring the latest updates from MWC 2017!
