Update: We’ve confirmed with two sources that the LG G6 production model in the US will have a 3,300 mAh battery, not a 3,200 mAh battery. We’re also told that the battery has “better layering between cells” to prevent Note 7-like disasters. There is at least one internal variant with a 3,200 mAh battery, but it’s not clear if that model will go public.
The LG G6 is far from being a secret at this point, with LG itself going as far as to confirm its ‘FullVision’ 18:9 5.7-inch display, offer a peek at the new LG UX 6.0 software, and send out a few teasers to various media outlets suggesting that it will feature ‘resistance’ and ‘reliability’. LG has also itself confirmed that the phone will have a 32-bit Quad-DAC like the LG V20.
But we haven’t seen all that many photos of the phone in the flesh, so we thought we would share a couple images we recently obtained from a source.
These aren’t really much you haven’t seen before if you’ve been following LG G6 leaks over the last several months — they’re just a couple new shots of the silver model from a new angle. As you can see below, the phone has its long-corroborated dual-camera set up, a fingerprint sensor on the back, and a display on the front that happens to have slightly rounded corners.
Somewhat interestingly, however, these photos also show what the always-on display will look like, which hasn’t been shown in photos up to this point.
For what it’s worth, this source also provided 9to5Google with a quick rundown of specs, corroborating much of what we already heard and/or assumed. The phone will have base 32GB of expandable storage, a 3,300 mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, and a 5.7-inch display.
Take a gander:
Leaks of the LG G6 go way back as I said; we saw the first official-looking image of the LG G6 crop up in late January, and we saw a a near-final LG G6 in the flesh with a super glossy back earlier this month. But a diagram of the phone’s design showed up for the first time all the way back in December of last year, and that — based on the images we’ve seen lately — seems to have turned out accurate. We also saw real-life images of this particular model crop up on a Korean news site earlier this month.
The LG G6 is set to debut at an event at MWC 2017 on February 26, and we’ll be on the ground in Barcelona to bring you all the latest. Stay tuned.
