LG G6 Flagship Render Surfaces Ahead of MWC Launch

January 27, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

With Samsung Galaxy S6 all set to miss the Mobile World Congress this year, LG appears to be grabbing all attention during the event with its G6 flagship. The South Korean company has been staying calm sans any teases, but thanks to newly appeared leaks that the anticipation is being kept high.

Ahead of its official launch, a new image of the LG G6 has now emerged revealing the company’s desire to cutout bezels from the flagship. Unfortunately, the image only reveals half of what can be called the LG G6, but it’s still enough to give the nod to rumors.

LG is said to be introducing a bigger display with 18:9 aspect ratio this year for G6 to accommodate extra space for additional controls, and that’s very well reflected in the new image. The company appears to be embracing the all-screen concept by axing out the bezels on its sides.

Unlike Mi Mix, LG G6 will be retaining the top bezel including front camera, but still will manage to attain an impressive screen-to-body ratio of over 90%. The device will also feature curved edges on its sides.

LG will also introduce a makeover in design terms by going all metal this year with G6. This is a big jump from the plastic design that was featured in its previous flagships. There has been no word out yet on whether the company will integrate iris scanner with the front-cam like it was rumored before.

LG’s G6 flagship has emerged as one of the most anticipated announcements of MWC. With Samsung opting to launch its Galaxy S8 flagship post the MWC, the stage is now set for the South Korean manufacturer to steal the show.

However, there are also other vendors prepping up big launches including the likes of Nokia and BlackBerry. We will have to wait to see if LG can emerge the real winner among those.
