This could be our first real look at the upcoming LG G6
LG has already revealed it plans to announce its next flagship phone in just over a month. Today, a new report claims to have the first real image of that phone, the LG G6, and it seems to confirm at least some of the previous rumors for this device.
The image (attached above) comes from The Verge, and shows that the display will only have a minimal bezel, as previously rumored, with curved corners. In fact, the article states that the screen-to-bezel ratio on the LG G6 is greater than 90 percent. While the image only shows the top of the phone, the bottom bezel is only supposed to be slightly taller.

LG has confirmed that the G6 will sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD LCD display, as well as an unusual 18:9 (or 2:1) aspect ratio. It’ll sport a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, too. The upcoming smartphone will also be made of glass and metal, and unfortunately will not have a removable battery this time around.
Other previously reported rumors claim the phone will have a dual-rear camera setup, along with a front-facing camera that could double as an iris scanner. It is also expected to have a waterproof body. Inside, some rumors claim that the phone will have the upcoming high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, and 6GB of RAM.
Some of the more recent rumors claim that the LG G6 will have thermal pipes inside for more efficient heat dissipation. One report claims that the G6 could be the first third-party Android smartphone with support for Google Assistant out of the box. In any case, we will find out what is fact and what is not when LG holds its press conference on Sunday, February 26 as part of the 2017 Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain.
