Shiny is hip! LG G6 rumored to sport a glass back, borderless edge-to-edge display, and other goodies

Now, another leak sheds some more light on what LG may have in store for us. According to the anonymous report, the G6 will sport a glass panel on its back, and what some call a “2.5D display” on the front. Don't worry, 2.5D isn't something mind-bogglingly techy — it's just a way to describe a glass panel, which goes almost fully end to end, leaving almost no side bezels, and is arched in a way that makes it transition seamlessly into the phone's body. That very arch is why the term 2.5D was coined. Not entirely accurate, but hey — neither is “4D cinema”.
Back to the G6 rumors, the leakster says that we will be seeing wireless charging and water-resistance added to LG's flagship — long overdue features, especially considering that the manufacturer has Samsung's Galaxy phones to compete with. Display size is said to remain the same as the one on the G5 – 5.3 inches. Maybe the G6 will be slightly more compact, then?
Thanks for the tip!

Last year was about design , but this year it's about whole package, being monster. LG already missed the train, and look at Samsung , S8 is shaping to be a beast.

LG G6 is good, but battery must be 3500mAh to compete with Samsung.

Battery capacity is half of the equation. A 2800mAh can compete with a 3500mAh in terms of battery duration.

I agree about battery life. I don't care for LG's gimmicky approach since the LG G3, which I loved at first until I got fed up with its feeble battery life. I only buy phones now that have 2-day battery life, like the Lenovo Zuk series, the Meizu Pro 5, Xiaomi Mi 5 and the Xiaomi Redmi 3S. Why pay more for barely one day of battery life??!!

How about AMOLED screen display? If I wanted a old IPS screen I'll use a iPhone.

Sounding great in the looks department. Whatever you do though, don't buy an AT&T model. They will always be about 6 months behind with their software updates because they don't give a damn about their customers and would rather you buy a new phone to get the latest version of Android.
