This Could Be the First Front-Side Image of the Upcoming LG G6
While we were bitterly disappointed to hear that the LG G6 might not come outfitted with a Snapdragon 835, here’s something that has definitely lifted our spirits. LG wasn’t the company you’d think of that would produce a smartphone featuring a full metal jacket, but it looks like the front side image leak of the upcoming handset shows that the company has changed its stance on what sort of high-end offering it will present to consumers when the MWC 2017 show kicks off.
LG G6 Front Side Image Leak Boasts Curved Corners and Is Near Identical to Xiaomi’s Mi Mix
Take a look at the image below and you’ll notice that the purported image of the LG G6 bears striking resemblance to the 2016 Xiaomi Mi Mix. Though it does not boast such narrow bezels, it looks closer to the rumors that we’ve been hearing about the upcoming Galaxy S8, so the battle of the flagships will definitely be exciting when comparing the G6’s design to the S8’s. According to previous ongoing rumors, the G6 is going to adopt a completely new design and this will be done in order to provide support for wireless charging and from the looks of it, the image is in line with the rumor that you’ve been hearing about frequently.
With the company having already announced a wireless charger that can deliver up to 15 watts of power, we’re hoping that the G6 is compatible with such a device. In addition, the high-end offering is also expected to be IP68 certified, but this would mean that the insides of the smartphone are going to be sealed tight to the extent that a removable battery option might have to be removed.
Hopefully, the manufacturer retains some terrific features present in the V20, which would include a Quad DAC chip inside the smartphone. Most phone makers often overlook devices that emanate terrific sound, but the announcement of the V20 shows that the company is also catering to audiophiles. The only complaint about this approach is that we will no longer see a removable battery option from the manufacturer. What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know right away.
