Another LG G6 photo leaks and this one shows the back of the phone

lgg6leaktmo

Last month, we got a look at the front of what might be the LG G6. Now a new leak has surfaced that claims to show us the rear of the device.

This new photo allegedly shows the glossy back of the LG G6, complete with a dual rear camera setup, a flash in-between the two cameras, and a fingerprint reader below those cameras. We can also see “G6” tattooed near the bottom of the phone.

The LG G6 is expected to feature a 5.7-inch 2880×1440 display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, which would make the screen a bit taller than most other smartphone displays. Also rumored to be included with the G6 is a Snapdragon 821 processor and a non-removable battery, a feature that LG is said to have implemented so that it could make the G6 water resistant.

One feature that’s not expected to be included with the LG G6 is support for the modules found on the LG G5. With the lack of modules and the non-removable battery, the G6 is shaping up to be more similar to other Android flagships on the market, but LG could try to use the G6’s 18:9 screen and some special features to help the phone stand out.

    No removeable battery????

    I think consumers need to reassess their needs and desires. What is the point of waterproof? Are you taking your phone swimming with you? Into the shower? Is that how ignorant of a society we have become that we need a waterproof phone for really no need?

    And why did LG listen to the bag of dimwits????

    What made me get the previous models was the removeable battery and ability to put in a new one on the whim without any hassle.

    If LG did indeed make this phone enclosed, to “waterproof” it, consider them losers in the flagship race.

    Sad to say, but despite the Note 7 woes, Samsung will come out on top and will surely make up for their slight losses which wasn’t much at all. Especially since they are hoarding the stock of the Snapdragon 835.

    LG better prepare for some losses. I was a fan until the end. Why change something that didn’t need changes. Ever heard the saying, “don’t fix it if ain’t broke?”

    Damn you LG. Just damn you.

      I feel you but waterproofing should be the standard by now. Why ever have to worry about dropping your phone into a toilet or a pool or something. My S7 makes me worry less when I’m around water, it’s a trade off but I think it’s necessary.

      • Aleks

        I’d have to disagree.

        If people are prone to dropping their phone in the toilet, then they need to reconsider their phone choices. Clumsiness is no excuse to waterproof a phone and it doesn’t make it a “premium” product.

        Dropping a phone in the toilet can happen, but waterproofing for that purpose is absurd. A phone isn’t supposed to be made to be used during a shower, in the pool, or for any place where water is in abundance. Only a bag of stupids do that. That’s just not what it’s supposed to do.

        I feel this is lack of innovation as a result because a bag of stupids don’t know how to properly take care of a phone.

        Plus after looking at the phone under more scrutiny, it’s obvious they sealed it up because the finger print sensor could be compromised with a removeable back cover and that’s a guarantee.

        LG is protecting themselves against losses but the irony is that they will have losses as they can’t avoid the losses that will occur as people choose other brands for their (LG’s) lack of innovation. It’s time to go back to the drawing board.

          I don’t think everyone with a waterproof phone enjoys taking their device in the shower. I like to fish so I like a waterproof phone period! Fingerprint readers now that’s a gimmick no one really needs. Let’s hope LG has a good design at least.

        • steadymobb

          Neither are gimmicks both are useful

        • George Salcedo

          Useful if the reader actually worked 100% of the time but sadly my s7 has horrible accuracy.

        • steadymobb

          I’ve never had any issues – sad for you! No gimmick over here though, probably one of the most useful features.

    • Adam

      If LG does not want the removable battery/expandable memory market, I am sure some other manufacture will step in to fill that demand.

  • George Salcedo

    Minus the bootloop crap, my wife’s LG G4 is still a solid performer. It really was ahead of its time and the design was great. I miss the curvature the older LG phones had, the design made them unique. I have an S7 now but I would try an LG if the price was right.

  • PiCASSiMO

    Don’t care much about the cpu. Just want a really good camera and a decent price. Can’t be over $500. Leave that for the V30.

    • Verizonthunder

      Try OnePlus 3T, it’s a great phone

      • Acdc1a

        No WiFi calling. Nexus 6p is a better choice for T-Mobile subscribers.

        • Verizonthunder

          One plus 3 and 3T has wifi calling nice try. Oh, also out performs the Nexus 6p in processor, camera, ram, internal storage.

        • Acdc1a

          3 does not out of the box.

        • Verizonthunder

          One plus 3 and 3T have wifi calling

      • PiCASSiMO

        I have a LG G4. Purchased and returned the V20 as the camera (IMX298) was worse than the G4 (IMX234). The OnePlus 3 and 3T both share the same V20 (IMX298) sensor.

        Will wait for the G6 and S8 to come out… and maybe the Pixel XL v2.

    Sadly they may have removed the battery to give us water resistant. Personally, for me, I would rather have the battery as you can always buy a case to make a phone water resistant. If LG was smart they would do just that so they could cater to multiple consumers. Hopefully they release multiple models of the phone (one that is water resistant and the other with a removable battery) but I highly doubt it. If anything… hopefully they don’t go this rout with the LG V30 otherwise the LG V20 may be the last phone I even consider buying from them. Trust me the removable battery can be much better to have than one thinks… otherwise you can have many issues… just look at Samsung and their Note 7.

    • Mike

      Majority of buyers doesn’t want a bulky case to make their phone water resistant. Also the case isn’t a guarantee that it’ll protect your phone anyway against water.

      • gpt2010

        I agree Mike. I had a big problem at first when there was a major push to get rid of removable batteries. These days with fast charge and better batteries. My issues were unfounded. I have never walked around with a spare battery. IMO give me water resistance anytime over removable battery.

      • Adam

        Waterproof cases add protection and flotation to your phone. Both useful features when taking your phone wake-boarding.

      • impasse

        i think everyone is quick to forget that the gs5 was waterproof and had a removable battery

        • Mike

          The Galaxy S5 waterproof rating was IP67 and you have to manually put the cover over the phone USB port. The S7 waterproof rating is IP68 something you can’t get with a removable battery , plus you don’t have to manually cover the charging port.

        • impasse

          i was just pointing out that there was an extremely popular phone that was waterproof with a removable battery. port covers, while annoying, still add effectively zero bulk, versus a waterproofing case. maybe i should have replied to the op instead.

          plus, ip67 is still waterproof for 30mins, ip68 just adds at a depth of 1.5m, so i’m not sure if you brought that up as rebuttal or something, when i was agreeing with your sentiment of not wanting a case for waterproofing.

    • SpaceGho5t

      I’m with you. The V20 might be my last LG device if they decide to ditch the removable battery on the V series.

  • steveb944

    Looks decent. As always for me it depends on speaker placement.

  • Verizonthunder

    I have no problem with LG removing the option for replaceable batteries, but if you remove that option make sure the battery capacity is big. Sorry, 3000mah battery capacity is unacceptable. Standard should be 5000mah or higher.

    • mingkee

      …and it can be charged 100000000000 times without degradation.

    • Andrew Singleton

      uhhhmmmmm phone design is not your destiny

  • Mike

    The S8 is rumored to start around $855 USD… If LG wanted to gain some new customers it should be priced around $650. The G6 doesnt have the newest processor and the martket share to be priced around the S8.

  • Mike Thaler

    LG replaced my board when phone quit after 16 months. (LG4). Now I have trouble getting the screen to come on. (LG doesn’t have a physical button – you have to “double tap” the screen. ) W.O. a replaceable battery – no need to stick w. LG. LG does have OIS feature in camera. I need that because of a hand tremor. S7 doesn’t have that.

    • Aaron Davis

      The power button on the LG G4 is on the back, between the volume buttons.
