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.
