New photos allegedly show the LG G6 in the wild

New photos allegedly show the LG G6 in the wild
Next Sunday, on February 26, LG will finally unveil the G6, its next-gen flagship smartphone that's bound to replace the modular G5. Until LG gets the chance to unveil everything there is to know about the G6, we can now take a look at a couple of new photos that seemingly show the handset in the wild.

As you can see below, we're treated with a silver version of the LG G6 shown from the front, and back. These new photos don't contradict the previously leaked images (see here, here, or here), and neither what LG itself shared about the device. Thus, it's almost safe to assume that this is what the G6 will look like, though we're not ruling out any surprises in this regard.

With a 5.7-inch Full Vision display that occupies most of its front side, the G6 looks quite different from last year's G5. However, things aren't that different on the back, as the new phone features a dual main camera and a fingerprint scanner just below it - somewhat similar to its predecessor, though it appears that (fortunately) there are no bumps on the back of the G6 whatsoever.

The G6 will run Android 7 Nougat out of the box, coming with a new interface dubbed LG UX 6.0. As you'll notice in the first photo below, the interface unsurprisingly includes an Always On display mode.

The upcoming LG flagship phone is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor, not the newer Snapdragon 835 - but this isn't such a bad idea if you think about the circumstances. Other notable features that the G6 will likely offer are: water resistance, 4 GB of RAM, USB Type-C port, and a 3200 mAh battery. The smartphone could be released in the US starting early April, most probably via all major carriers

Shiny. Me like shiny :). Off topic but, I really want a V10 (cuz it's really cheap right now and looks Nada's) but the bootloop thread on reddit scares the shot out of me! Can anyone explain WHY it happens and HOW I can avoid it. Thanks in advance.

As far as I know only the first batches of G4 and V10s had the bootloop issue, I have a friend with a G4 which had the bootloop issue, had its motherboard replaced with an updated one, it has been a few month and he's not having any problems

Lg 5X's have bootloop issues too, they have been offering refunds for it

It's a soldering issue with LG's motherboard in the LG G4 and LG V10, I have a friend who has had a V10 since it's release and thankfully nothing happen to it as far as bootloop issues are concerned, I hope those words don't come back to haunt me, I don't know if the bootloop issue is avoidable, but I do believe they're batch issues with the V10, whereas the G4, almost all of them are affected with the bootloops. I would try it out, I hope it goes well with you if you proceed into considering the V10. :)

Good luck buddy. My wife had one as a loaner after turning in her Note 7 until the V20 came out. It was really sweet! Those stainless steel sides feel SO nice...But then again im a metal worker so maybe it's just me lol.

The V10 battery sucks!! Everything else is top notch and good to go, though.

I have the v10 and still strong.but i did experience the G4 bootloop. To it was the swapping of batteries without turning off the phone that made it bootloop in my opinion..for my friends G4 is still working fine..i wan to see ths G6.it is on my buying option now that i know that it will have a quad dac.

If no removable battery, LG just committed suicide.

Removable batteries are literally gone for good. Why was it not also called sucide when other OEMs did non-removable batteries?

Not everyone is a complete moron willing to accept a non-removable battery that was chosen to rape them by the manufacturer.

the battery will never compare to a sammy becasue of the panel their using, amoled is way more efficient than ips

Not true. It is theoretically, but only Samsung's best panels are more efficient. If you're using less than the best AMOLED offerings, you would do better by equipping a decent IPS panel. Black and color images helps to tip things in AMOLED panel favor, I will admit.

Looking better and better with each leak. This just might be the year that I pass on a Galaxy flagship and go with a G-series flagship.

LG designs are just so generic. When you look at their phones at the back, you wouldhave think that it's designed by a cheap Chinese company. Plus, the flat front just looks like its made out of plastics instead of glass. Feels cheap too. In other words, its ugly.

9. TechGirl90 unregistered

"Feels cheap too." WAIT!!, YOU HAVE THE LG G6???

Posts: 1495; Member since: Jan 27, 2015

It may look *generic*, but at least the fingerprint sensor is in a place that actually makes sense. Plus, they've greatly improved on the design of their dual camera area, compared to that eyesore found on the G5/V20. Also...it feels cheap? Please let me know how you got one early, because I want in!

LOL! IKR?

Where's the wrong place to put a fingerprint sensor? Just because another OEM is not putting it where other's are or have doesn't make it wrong... I can remember when everyone said putting a fingerprint sensor on the back was stupid... Muscle memory will take over and everyone will eventually get used to it... But no one has even tried it yet so we don't know it it will be so bad...

Virtually no one naturally rests their index finger next to the camera. I have massive hands, and in trying to minic the S8's alleged fingerprint scanner location on my S7 Edge, it requires me to shift my index finger over which causes a bit of strain. Centered right below the camera is hands down the best spot for rear fingerprint scanners.

Virtually no one knows that yet... Let's wait until the phone comes out and pass judgment then... Once people get it in their hands it probably won't be as bad as it looks...

why not? I rest my index finger beside camera when I'm using S6/S7 size phone.. because I'll need to bend my index finger to touch anything below camera.. but centered FPscanner is great for phablet sized phone
