Losing out on initial sales, LG has been launching its G-series flagship much later than its competitors like HTC and Samsung in the past few years.
A recent report coming straight from Korea suggests that LG might be gearing up for an early launch of the LG G6. Losing out on initial sales, LG has been launching its G-series flagship much later than its competitors like HTC and Samsung in the past few years. However, as Samsung is likely to postpone the S8 launch to April this year, LG might bring in its next flagship just after MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017 to win over both sales and availability.
A launch just around MWC 2016 means LG might go in for the production as soon as early January 2017 which is why the first design renders of the device are now surfacing on the internet. The new diagram is obtained by Shai Mizrachi, who is a well-known name when it comes to leaks about Samsung and LG flagship.
As per the renders, the G6 will come with a similar design to that of the LG G5 or LG V20. The device is 149.4 mm tall and 72.43 mm wide which is a lot similar to LG G5. To further detail out, while the height of the device is identical to that of the LG G5, the width is a tad bit smaller indicating thinner bezels when compared to the G5. Moreover, the device has cut outs for Dual-Camera setup and a fingerprint scanner (with Power Button) at the back with volume rockers situated on the left side of the device.
Meanwhile, as per previous reports reports, the company is likely to dump the modular concept for the G6 and the device is also rumoured to come with 3.5mm headphone jack. Further, with modular concept likely to go, LG might introduce water and dust resistance in the new G6. Talking about the 3.5 mm headphone jack, LG is also likely to keep the Hi-Fi Quad DAC for high-quality audio output via headsets.
