Shiny, new LG G6 renders appeared online today, and while they’re unofficial, they depict a phone that’s shaping up to be more than a modular experiment.
It’s said to be encased in a ‘highly reflective metallic material’ and yet it may still be capable of wireless charging, according to the latest LG G6 rumors.
Today’s renders show a dual lens camera setup and fingerprint sensor on back, and we’re expecting a 5.3-inch Quad HD display on front, matching the LG G5.
Waterproof, but what about the battery?
The LG G6 is illustrated to have a non-modular, airtight design, but one that still keeps the 3.5mm headphone jack and USB-C port open.
It could very well be a waterproof – or at least water-resistant – LG flagship phone – finally. But that may come at the expense of the replaceable battery.
Why the change? We may see significantly better battery life from a more power efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, likely to be inside the LG G6.
Couple that with powers, and this new Android phone could recharge 20% faster than last year’s phones.
We’ll know for sure at MWC 2017, and maybe hear about new rumors at CES 2017.
