So, what do you think about that LG G6 sneak peek?


So, today, we got to see what is allegedly the first sneak peek of what the LG G6 is going to look like. Initially leaked by The Verge, the image is an alleged press render of the G6, showing a device with impressively small bezels. Despite the fact that we don't see its bottom, the source did say that the phone's “chin” is only a little bit bigger than the “forehead” and that the overall screen-to-body ratio is above the 90% threshold.

But, we also see that the phone is moving further away from the style that LG had in pre-G5 times and becoming a bit more... mainstream with its looks. Even the modular design, which the company only dipped its toes in with the G5, has now, reportedly, been dropped. It seems like the G6 will be more of a run-of-the-mill device, which will try to wow us with being a really good smartphone, without risking it with too many bells and whistles.

But we are getting ahead of ourselves here. For now, what we do have for sure is this render. So, what do you think about it?

The real question is why did you get it? Did you not go to the store, look at it & test it out first? Sounds like you let someone talk you into getting that phone. Mine is bangin BTW.

I like the S7 Edge phone as a sum of its parts, but the only thing I would've preferred is a flat screen. The curved edge looks cool, but it makes it a bit awkward to hold. I think the Note 7 got the curved edges right, where it feels comfortable in the hand. More on topic, the new G6 picture looks like a Galaxy Note 5.

Absolutely mesmerising! Reminds me of the HTC M9 renders posted by evleaks that we were all drooling over back In the day. I can only imagine this beast in black. LG finally nails it.

I fear the back side will be cartoonish ugly.

Actually, the back looks pretty awesome from the leaked case renders. I think LG finally killed it this time.

I love the styling of curved sides but practically I prefer flat screens, this is the first LG phone in years that I like the look of, lets just hope the camera can match the Samsung S8

I'm so in love with the narrow edge to edge flats creen tbh. Samsung can gtfo with their BS. I generally hate douchebags. Maybe they finally feel threatened by LG. All I need now is the FM Radio and an IR Blaster.

Go look at the advances of the 835 and you'll see.

Well it looks beautiful but with an old chip i don't know how impressive it would be i think they should release it later when the 835 is ready

Looks matter not. They question is can the display & camera be up to par with Sammy's; and by up to par I mean REALLY up to par & not just settle for.

Looks nice to me but I'm already locked in with the beautiful V20. I won't be looking for a new phone until fall of next year unless my V20 becomes defective through no fault of my own.

I do not think Samsumg will be that nerd not to allow thr other companies to use 835 before them. If they will, than they are really a gypsy company. This phone finally reminds of thr old nice lg handsets.

LG is leaking the top portion of the phone probably because the bottom portion has a humongous chin. We will see ...

actually from what I've read it will have a 90% screen to body ratio. That means it won't be too much larger than the display itself! (if the rumor is true)

Traditional rectangular design, how boring. They need to bring back the G4 design and curves.

The G6 is going to be a great upgrade over the G5. Like the S7 vs the S6.

My question is, with the soc, how well will it play with daydream VR?

Looks good. Get rid of boot loop and make the camera lens durable. Co workers V20 lens or the glass that surrounds them shattered. But he never drop it. Just notice one day and is quite bothered by it.

It looks awesome but it screams "Samsung".
