Another LG G6 image leak reveals a side view of the new flagship

A couple of days ago, the first allegedly legitimate photo of the LG G6 was leaked. While it is hard to tell from that photo, LG reportedly has decided to scrap the modular build after just one year. Why? It could be due to the way that Motorola/Lenovo schooled the company on how to do modular the right way. The LCD screen from LG Display to be used on the unit measures 5.7-inches with an 9:18 aspect ratio. The resolution will be 1440:2880, and the panel consumes 30% less energy than the previous screen.

While you would expect the latest and greatest from Qualcomm's camp to be under the hood of the LG G6, there is speculation that all of the Snapdragon 835 chips produced on the initial manufacturing runs have been promised to Samsung for the Galaxy S8. If true, the Snapdragon 821 chipset will drive LG's new flagship. For a phone that continues to ring up sales that fall short of Samsung's annual flagship, that cannot be good news if it is legitimate. The LG G6 is said to have an IP certification rating and a non-replaceable battery. We should see LG introduce the LG G6 as soon as next month during MWC in Barcelona.

Check out the latest picture of the LG G6 in the slideshow. Will LG be able to satisfy its fans with this phone, or will it take the LG V30 to bail out the company like the LG V10 and LG V20 have arguable done the last two years.

The more it leaks the more I find myself intrigued about the G6, I feel the same way as you at this point.

As am I. A real treat would be this shipping with the 835.

It's an LCD not OLED. No daydream support.

Who said anything about daydream? Don't care about VR at all. I'm too busy with actual reality to care about virtual reality. LCD is fine by me, as long as it's a good one.

Sexy AF. With this design, I actually don't mind about the SD835 anymore. fine it would have been better if it where there but the design alone is sufficient to cover for it IMO. This will have everything Samsung lacks, from IR blaster to FM Radio, to Dual cameras, to Metal build to Google Assistant, to 6 gigs of RAM to best manual Mode of all time (both for photo and video), Quad DAC and the list goes on and on. All that would have cemented it would have been the Removable battery and SD835 but I don't care at this point. let's see if other rumors like lg pay, Iris scanner comes to pass with this phone.

It depends on the consumer Waterproofing is more important to me than any of those features. Although the IR Blaster should make a return for the S8.

Looks good, I got the LG G3 when it first came out with that design, but the G4 and G5 were blah. This could bring LG back!!! Cant wait for the announcements of the G6 and Samsung S8

It really doesn't look that bad... With the SD 821 it will be a good 2016 back up phone for me. It'll hold me over until the S8 drops.

Looks good. Just don't make it fragile like the V20.

Not sure if I should like that rounded corner display, lol. But yea, it seems a lot better than the G5. I like the G G2 G3 G4 but the G5 just looks oddly ugly to me. I like the small top bezel here, and removable battery is a big plus.

Agree, the G5 was bad. If thus is really the G6 it looks nice so far.

let's just all assume the G5 didn't happen.

Honestly man, what are LG and Samsung thinking? I guess this will be another year where Apple gets most of the profit. They will never learn

The only thing wrong here is Qualcomm's monopoly in the high-end android SoC market.

looks nice... I'm sure it will sell well as long as it priced right...(especially if it really use SD821)

What would all these companies do if they could be sued for copying the iPhone design?

You mean the design that Apple blatantly stole from Samsung's Ativ S? That one?

What's more likely, Apple going after the Ativ s or Samsung going after apple's design? Come on...

More likely? Apple going after the ATIV, since they're known for silly lawsuits over things they stole.

Just because they took away the removable battery doesn't make them a copy of apple. Neither one looks like a iphone, they don't have huge bezels for one.
