A real-life photo of the LG G6 front panel appears online

If the upcoming G6 is anything to go by, it seems LG isn't one to keep its devices under wraps for too much – we've seen a number of renders of the device, along with photos of a prototype version, and, most recently, a picture of its glossy back. Today, another leak has sprung up on the internet, and it's of the device's front panel.

The photo, courtesy of IT Home, seems to confirms past leaks - the panel features an extra-wide display with thin bezels and rounded corners, and past information suggests a 5.7 inch, 9:18 LCD panel sporting a QHD+ resolution (1440 x 2880). What's curious about this panel is its light coloring, which is a first for photos of this device. However, this may simply be a prototype panel, or just the result of bad lighting. Other than that, the photo is consistent with previous leaks, featuring the same camera and sensor placement, along with the LG logo placed below the screen.

The G6 is LG's newest attempt at a flagship device, after the failure of its predecessor, the modular G5. It will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821, rather than the newer 835, which we believe might be a great idea in the face of competition, such as the upcoming Galaxy S8. LG has hinted that the device will be unveiled on February 26, at a press conference just ahead of this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It's rumored to be the first non-Pixel device running Google Assistant, and is also expected to feature an upgraded Quad DAC, an iris scanner, and more.

I'm getting LG G2 vibes from that front panel, that was my favorite phone to date from LG, and I feel silly for getting rid of it. And is it just me, or does the left side of the Bezel from our point of view look a tad wider than the Bezel on the right?

Agree with you but I loved the G3, I feel LG went backwards with the G4 & the G5.

The fall actually started with the G3. The G2 is the best G phone ever. LG didn't just drop the ball after the G2, they dug a hole in the ground, and buried the ball.

The G2 was what we all thought would be the phone to bring Samsung's dominance down, but too bad LG was too dumb and failed to capitalize on the G2's success. I just hope they go with an OLED screen, and this might be my 1st LG phone since the Optimus 2X.

AMOLED is a trademark for OLED screens from Samsung. You will never see a AMOLED screen on a LG device, but a OLED screen by LG themselve like on the G FLEX 2 ;-)

It won't be an OLED screen as LG already announced its 5,7" QDH+ LCD screen. But well, the screen will be thinner (which decreases the distance between the outer glass and the actual screen) according to LG which is more important imo than AMOLED vs LCD. Anyways, this may be my first LG smartphone as well, but I think that I'll wait for the S8+ announcement before I decide.

Really Nice! If it will have more than 3000mAh battery, IP67, lower price than competitors, this is my next phone!

It's confirmed to be IP68 Water Resistant from LG's G6 Teaser on YouTube, and the recent article on this website of LG using the SD821 instead of the SD835 with a leaked image from CES 2017, but Battery Capacity remains to be seen as well as the price. :)

the top and bottom bezels looks rather huge tbh.. thought 2017 was suppose to be the year of radical design improvements..? Maybe the iPhone X might be the phone to knock it outta the park after all..

Square, boxy designs are cheaper to manufacture. I guess we can say that LG is not cutting any corners anymore.

LG will become 2nd place right after Samsung this year. The real innovators are striking back!

Stop with that crap. It was LG design since LG Arena. Why can't you Sony fanboy stop accusing other of copying?

What the hell dude? You digested a jar of salt or something? That's how I see it and that's how I'm liking the design ok?

It is ugly. The S8 is going to kill this even if this is released earlier.

I am sure the s8 will out sale it, but I disagree about it being ugly.
