Today, we get our first look at an LG G6 render from @ShaiMizrachi, who has previously produced accurate renders of both LG and Samsung models. The design is similar to the LG G5 with a dual-camera setup in back and a fingerprint scanner underneath the cameras. The big question that everyone wants to know is whether the latest model will offer the modular accessories like the LG G5 does. LG's implementation of modular was not that impressive compared to Motorola/Lenovo's Moto Mods for the Moto Z line. The render, unfortunately, doesn't give us a clear idea whether LG is going to outfit its new flagship phone with a modular build once again.
What we might see is a 5.3-inch to 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. A Snapdragon 821 chipset or a Snapdragon 835 SoC could be found under the hood, and LG could stuff as much as 6GB of RAM into the phone. Thanks to the modular build of the LG G5, the device offered a replaceable 2800mAh battery. We could see something similar with the LG G6, even if the manufacturer decides to put the kibosh to modular. Still, Mizrachi sees a wider bottom for the LG G6 compared with the LG G5, and a slimmer top. That could indicate that the modular accessories will return, or it could simply mean that the phone will be endowed with a thicker (and higher capacity) battery.

Looks like a baby V20 to me

on a more positive note..looks like the side bezels have been shrunk on the 5.3 inch display.or Lg has returned to a 5.5 inch one. If the render is correct then the back isnt removable which I fine with but I'd like to know how they'll liven up that boring back design. Their old button placement and material choice worked but the G5 was hideous at best. Let's wait and see

The rear of this, the G5, and the V20 sums up exactly why I am not a fan of the major OEM's dual camera setups. The camera area is just so obnoxiously huge and ruins what could have been such a pleasing aesthetic. So far, Huawei's Honor 8 and P9 take the cake when it comes to dual camera design. They look so classy, sit flush with the body, and don't have that ugly *black pill* border around the cameras.

i'm okay with the render design.. i just hope the bezels will be crazy slim. Also, bring an OLED 2K display, water resistance, at least 12MP wide angle secondary camera with AF, better battery life and better optimizations...you have an almost perfect phone and my money
