New LG G6 renders do away with the modular design

A new set of LG G6 renders has appeared, coming from tipster @OnLeaks. They are based on factory CAD images, and are more detailed and different than the one we showed you yesterday. Based on these images, it would appear that LG is leaving modular design in the hands of Lenovo/Motorola. The latter schooled LG on how to make modular a positive feature on a phone this year, instead of making it a hindrance.


The LG G6 will be sporting a 5.3-inch display, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The screen will be completely flat. The Snapdragon 835 chipset could be powering the phone, and the two cameras on back will allow users to employ the Bokeh effect on their pictures. There is a dual-tone flash on the back.

The renders also show a fingerprint scanner on the rear cover, and this is reportedly going to double as a power button. A USB-Type C port is found on the bottom of the unit along with a 3.5mm earphone jack on top. Yes, LG is apparently not joining Motorola, Apple and others in doing away with this port.


There is some talk about LG trying to get a head start on Samsung next year by launching its latest flagship phone earlier in March, before the Samsung Galaxy S8 hits the stores. Meanwhile, get a glimpse at what the LG G6 just might look like by clicking on the slideshow below. And don’t miss the video found at the top of this story.
