LG had already sent out invites for its press event at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. With just a few weeks away for the LG G6 smartphone unveiling, a new rumour has surfaced online. Droid-Life today shared a few images which are claimed to be the prototype of the alleged LG G6.
The purported images of alleged LG G6 suggest a large display with slim bezel. The rear side image shows the device sporting a dual-camera setup along with a fingerprint sensor. Another alleged image outlines the prototype’s bottom that features a speaker and a USB Type-C connection.
Although the images do highlight the LG logo at the front bottom of the device, we cannot comment on the authenticity of these alleged images.
Earlier, LG had frantically revealed a few key specs of its upcoming smartphone. The teaser unveiled the device will feature a 5.7-inch QHD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 564ppi. Favourable for Nougat’s multi-window feature, LG Display claimed that the bezels on the device have been trimmed down for a more compact form factor. As Samsung is accused of hoarding Snapdragon 835 supply, LG’s next flagship LG G6 might not feature the latest Qualcomm chipset. The phone, however, might come with water resistance and sport a 3.5mm jack for headphones.
In addition, LG was also reported to be working on a new ‘heat pipe’ cooling system to conduct heat away from the processor. As per the reports, the device’s batteries have undergone extensive safety tests that surpass US, and European safety standards.
LG’s pre-MWC 2017 event is scheduled on February 26. The event will commence at 12pm CET (4:30pm IST).
