LG G6 Image Leaked While Release Date Set For February 26
An image of the upcoming LG G6 has been leaked while more rumors regarding its other features continue to surface. One fact that came out recently is that the G6 will be released in February.
The leaked image clearly shows that the LG G6 will have minimal bezels. In fact, its screen-to-bezel ratio is rumored to be more than 90 percent. As it stands, the display will measure 5.7 inches with a 2880 x 1440 pixel resolution. The G6 will also have curved display corners, also seen in the leaked image. Not shown, however, is the lower bezel which is said to be a little bit taller than the top bezel.
The G6 will be made of glass and metal which means LG will no longer go for the modular design and that the device will be water-resistant. Another rumor states that Google Assistant will be built-in and that the 3.5mm headphone jack will remain.
After a render for the Samsung Galaxy S8 was leaked, case maker Ghostek did the same with LG. This time, Ghostek showed a G6 encased in one of its products. The leaked images show that the G6 will be thinner than usual and will be without any camera bumps. The fingerprint scanner is still right under the dual camera arrangement just like the design of its predecessors.
Snapdragon 835 No More
The G6 has long been rumored to run on Qualcomm's latest processor - the Snapdragon 835. Forbes, however, has confirmed that the G6 will have the Snapdragon 821 chip instead. This is due to Samsung holding the rights to be the first one to release a device with the new processor. The Galaxy S8's launch has been delayed to April according to rumors. That said, it will not make an appearance at the MWC.
The LG G6 will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. LG is scheduled to hold a press conference on Feb. 26 during which the Korean company will officially announce the G6. The company has already given out press invites to its 12:00 (local time, Barcelona) event which tells everyone to expect to "See More, Play More".
