New LG G6 renders do away with the modular design
posted by Alan F. / Dec 27, 2016, 4:53 PM
A new set of LG G6 renders has appeared, coming from tipster @OnLeaks. They are based on factory CAD images, and are more detailed and different than the one we showed you yesterday. Based on these images, it would appear that LG is leaving modular design in the hands of Lenovo/Motorola. The latter schooled LG on how to make modular a positive feature on a phone this year, instead of making it a hindrance.
The LG G6 will be sporting a 5.3-inch display, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The screen will be completely flat. The Snapdragon 835 chipset could be powering the phone, and the two cameras on back will allow users to employ the Bokeh effect on their pictures. There is a dual-tone flash on the back.
The renders also show a fingerprint scanner on the rear cover, and this is reportedly going to double as a power button. A USB-Type C port is found on the bottom of the unit along with a 3.5mm earphone jack on top. Yes, LG is apparently not joining Motorola, Apple and others in doing away with this port.
There is some talk about LG trying to get a head start on Samsung next year by launching its latest flagship phone earlier in March, before the Samsung Galaxy S8 hits the stores. Meanwhile, get a glimpse at what the LG G6 just might look like by clicking on the slideshow below. And don't miss the video found at the top of this story.

Haha, no way this thing leaked already. But that glossy black looks GREAT! Well done LG. I hope that it has a big battery to compensate for the loss of a removable battery (which in my opinion is better than a small, removable battery). But I'm definately interested.

If they put a quad dac like the one on the V20 and ffs it will be a killer phone. Make it happen LG.

Just like the Note 7, they think it's good for them but not for a consumer. Glad sammy rumoured not to rush the S8 this year... Btw dual camera setup on G5 looks horrible, iP7 plus protruding camera looks a bit better.

Wow, I know this design is not too different from the G5, however, i am kinda liking it a lot better than the older ugly design they implemented with primer coated metal and all. I really hope these renders are a close look to reality, though we did not get any front renders from this one. Loving the fact that they are keeping the 3.5! And even though I am not a fan of LG due to their bloatware and expensive devices that get devalued quickly, I think they could be in for a good one this time around, just hope the back is not aluminum, or if it is, that they do not choose to go Apple's way and making a super scratchable aluminum shiny back.

If it looks like this and they can solve their boot loop issues, I'll give them a look.
