LG was the first conglomerate to bring the most dreamed modular design phones to the market, and with the last year’s flagship G5, the company made lots of buzz on modular concept phones. Lenovo has also launched a semi-modular phone, the Moto Z series, however, both these smartphone didn’t sell as expected. We had high hopes on Google Project Ara, a complete solution to modular phones, but things didn’t do well as the company shelved the project. LG’s next year flagship G6 leaks, renders and specifications were surfacing on the internet for weeks now.
Based on the renders of LG G6, LG is going back to the traditional candybar design. The popular leakster @OnLeaks has unveiled 3D render images of the Korean conglomerate’s next flagship smartphone, the LG G6.
The LG G6 design has been completely changed to that of the LG G5, featuring the standard design with volume buttons on the side of the bezels. The phone features a metallic frame on the back and glass on the front. Looking at the renders, LG ditched modular design so it won’t be compatible with LG Friends, modular accessories. The phone tips at 8.33mm at the top and 8mm at the bottom and the dimension of the LG G6 are 148.8 x 72.3 x 8.3mm.
On the back, LG G6 still retains the dual camera module with LED flash; of course, they both will have different focal lengths. Below the camera setup, there’s a fingerprint senor which also doubles as a power button. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top, which LG is not yet ready to shelve jack in favour of a USB Type-C port. The Type-C port in at the bottom with speaker grills on the right and microphone on the left.
We can see two finishes in the render video, so LG will be launching the G6 in Matte and Glossy finishes. As far specifications, the hardware of the G6 is still under the wraps. It will come with a 5.3-inch Quad-HD display just like its predecessor. As it is the company’s next flagship , it is indeed to pack premium hardware, mostly the Snapdragon 835 chipset, 3GB or 4GB RAM, ample storage space and a dual 16MP cameras.
LG G6 is said to feature a wireless charging technology that would juice up the phone’s battery up to 50% in just 30 minutes. While the anticipated hardware of the G6 remains to be mystery, the phone is expected to make its debut in Mobile World Congress in February 2017.
