LG G6 cases by Spigen pop up on Amazon, confirm the handset's design


A handful of cases for the LG G6, by veteran smartphone accessory maker Spigen, have unexpectedly popped up on Amazon, seemingly confirming the phone's design well ahead of its expected official unveiling at MWC 2017.

The G6 pictured in these renders is in line with what we've seen in other recent leaks, although it's only the glossy black version of the handset, when a few days ago we took a glimpse at what may be a silver G6 with a brushed metal back. Curiously, the images depict a G6 with top and bottom bezels seemingly identical in size, while most recent leaks suggest that the phone's bottom bezel will be slightly bigger.

As far as the cases go, they are the usual Spigen affair, and come in a variety of different types and colors. There are currently the following six options available for the LG G6, spanning Spigen's most popular series:

  • Spigen Neo Hybrid
  • Spigen Tough Armor
  • Spigen Rugged Armor
  • Spigen Ultra Hybrid
  • Spigen Thin Fit
  • Spigen Liquid Crystal

The cases are priced between $12.99 and $18.99 and popped up on Amazon just recently. None of them are as of yet listed on Spigen's official website.

PA! don't you know that these are just Photoshop jobs? these are based off of the original renders posted by the verge. They don't prove anything tbh. Awesome design anyway!

These arent photoshop mockups. Samsung sends them the final 3d renders and they add their cases on top of them and have the images ready for advertising when phone lunches. These are pretty much 110% legit. Its been like this for years. Case makers leak the final design a month before. Like always.

No removable battery. If not, then f--- you, LG. May you enjoy the matching lack of prosperity as Radio Shack and Sears. And for what it's worth, Spigen Tough Armor is a great case for the Galaxy S5. Actually gives it somewhat of a premium solid feel, and removes quite easily to allow for almost effortless battery swap.

Can you explain how you have a phone that is waterproof but also has a removable battery.

5.1'' Galaxy S5 is ass wide or even wider than 5.7'' G6. And, as the latest polls show, only 10% of users want removable batteries. And about 80% want compact phones and small bezels. You just need to look elsewhere, bro.

Can easily be done Samsung S5 is an example.

In these case renders, the top and bottom bezel are the same size, unlike yesterday's case leaks which showed the bottom bezel being thicker than the top bezel. This definitely seems more like a 90%+ screen to body ratio than what we saw yesterday.

True Just that is why I don't believe rumors. One day you read one and a day or two later is another.

is double tap to wake patented by LG? that's the most convenient thing I miss.

No. Nokia had it first. And they have apps for that. I use knockon tap to wake or lock from the play store

Rumor or not I like this design and absolutely sure many other people do. Need a compact version with 4.5 - 4.7 inch screen.
