LG seems to be working on a successor of G5 smartphone launched this year in February. The new smartphone which is going to join the LG G-Series will be called LG G6. Unlike its predecessor, LG is moving away from the modular design with G6.
Recently, a famous leakster posted the renders on Twitter claiming they belong to yet to be unveiled LG G6. There are also reports of LG planning to launch this smartphone in March 2017, a little ahead of Samsung Galaxy S8. The reason being obvious that LG wants to hit stores before the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The images showed the device to host a fingerprint scanner at the back which will also reportedly work as a power button. The phone is said to sport a dual rear camera setup and a USB Type-C port along with 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom. Talking about the specs, the LG G6 will sport a 5.3-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. The phone is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset. There is no word about the RAM, internal storage and the battery size of the phone.
Earlier this year, LG launched G5 with a 5.3-inch Quad HD display and powered by Snapdragon 820 processor which was the latest chipset from Qualcomm at the time of launch. The G5 was first modular phone from the company with a transformative design featuring a slide out battery and modular functionality. Currently, the only other modular phone available in India is Moto Z.
The LG G6 is however not a modular phone, and it seems like LG has perhaps taken a step back. Here, get a glimpse of all new LG G6 in this video.
