LG G6: First render images and video show glossy and matte finish

The LG G6 will not be modular like its predecessor, it might be waterproof instead.

Based on leaked CAD designs, render images were published that show the LG G6 from all sides and reveal a non-modular, closed design which will probably be available with a matte or glossy metallic finish on the back.

Recently leaked CAD designs were taken as a base for new render images and a video that @OnLeaks and @GearIndia released today revealing the design of the LG G5 successor that is said to be announced in just two months from now during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February. Contrary to the modular LG G5 design, we can see that the LG G6 resembles more of a traditional smartphone with a closed metallic body, which may be available with either a glossy or matte finish on the back. Instead of offering a removable battery and modular accessories, the G6 will likely be waterproof.

Contrary to Apple and maybe Samsung on the Galaxy S8, LG kept the headphone jack which will make many people happy. The fingerprint sensor is still located on the back of the phone together with a dual camera that will have different focal lengths on either lens. The 5.3 inch flat LCD display is likely to offer QHD resolution again. The G6 will measure exactly 148.8 x 72.3 x 8.0 to 8.3 mm, which makes it slightly smaller in both width and height compared to the G5 but also close to 1 mm thicker. At the bottom you can see a USB-C port and the speaker grills. We expect the G6 to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor and wireless charging support.

As a former projectionist still used to working with 35 mm film and experience in computer assembling and overclocking, I was drawn to the professional IT crowd a couple of years back and started working in IT support, Windows administration and project management before discovering my love for traveling the world. Now I am working as a news editor from all parts of the world, mostly writing about gadgets and mobile gear for Notebookcheck.
