Leaked image of an LG G6 case once again shows similarity between the upcoming model and the LG G5

What is alleged to be the image of an LG G6 nestled inside a case made by an unknown manufacturer, confirms an earlier render that showed a striking similarity between the LG G5 and the upcoming LG G6. The case shows off the horizontally placed dual-camera set up on back. The flash is placed in between the two camera sensors. The fingerprint scanner is found underneath the housing for the rear cameras.

Once again, we can't really tell whether LG is keeping the modular design that was supposed to differentiate (in a positive way) the LG G5 from the competition. Earlier reports called for the upcoming model to offer a removable battery, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the handset will contain modular features.

LG is reportedly looking at stealing Samsung's thunder by beating its rival to market this year. The LG G6 is now rumored to be unveiled in February, possibly during MWC 2017 in Barcelona, with the launch taking place in March. Samsung was originally rumored to unveil its latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S8, at MWC. Now, all indications are that the highly anticipated phone will first see the light of day in April, during an event in New York City.

We should point out that there seems to be a strong resemblance between an LG G6 render that we showed you earlier, and the device seen in the photograph that accompanies this story. That render is based on a computer automated design of the LG G6.

We expect the LG G6 to be among the first, if not the first handset to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. The latter is the latest and greatest chip coming from Qualcomm's camp.

I wish they placed the fingerprint scanner at the front. But hey, if this will have IP68 + FM then I'll definately buy it. A big battery and a more stock-like UI would also be a great bonus to have.

How many people are or have experienced the boot-looping or freezing recently? I had an LGG2. Good looking but the battery got super hot until one day it burned itself out... I don't recall any issues with bootlooping.... Yeah, I'll wait for the reviews before I switch
