LG G6 shows itself in another photo leak

lgg6leakfront

The LG G6 is going to make its official debut on February 26, but today a leak has surfaced that gives us a clear look at the device ahead of the event.

The new photos come to us from 9to5Google, and they include both the front and the back of a silver LG G6. The front of the phone is home to an LG logo as well as the G6’s 5.7-inch 18:9 display, complete with round corners. Around back we can see a G6 logo, a dual camera setup, and a fingerprint reader below those cameras.

The source of these photos also shared some of the LG G6’s specs. LG’s upcoming flagship is said to include a Snapdragon 821 processor, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, 4GB of RAM, and a 3,200mAh battery.

With the G6, LG is ditching the modular feature that it tried with the G5 as well as its removable battery. The G6 is expected to have some new features that its predecessor didn’t to make up for those that were ditched, though, like a water resistant body and a tall 18:9 display. We’ll have to wait and see if those changes will help the G6 sell better than the G5, which LG has said experienced “weak sales”.

    They should have released this device in January. G6 doesn’t stand a chance against upcoming Samsung phones.

    • superg05

      x ) true not a chance

    • DM725

      Needed 64GB and SD835

    • bkat11

      Agree! They got lucky with the V20 with the Note debacle…otherwise that phone would have been dead in the water

  • Kaulana1989

    Why only 32 gigs of storage it should be 64

  • Tanner B. Harman

    They are just making these devices ugly as sin over here.

  • mreveryphone

    V30 will be LG’s real flagship this year… Hopefully they don’t charge to much for the G6…

  • NardVa

    If LG prices the phone at a reasonable price ($550 or less), they might stand a chance. Knowing LG this phone will be $700 which is no go for the masses.

  • Benben

    Another phone no one needs

  • DM725

    No SD835, No consideration

  • vplaza

    Bootloop feature still included?

  • Aleks

    I just can’t see this device out doing the Galaxy S8. As bad as I hate to admit it, it just won’t beat it. LG got kicked right in the nuts. Can’t blame them though, Sammy is hoarding the latest snap dragon. Very unfair competition if you ask me.

    • steadymobb

      It wasn’t beating the s8 even with the 835

      • Aleks

        I’d like to disagree. If LG had access to the 835 SoC, it would give people a choice as to what device would better suit them. Choice is good. But with the way things are, consumers want the latest and fastest. LG better be careful with the pricing of this device if they want decent market share.

        • Mike

          Since the S8 has the 835 LG should price this phone around $650 to hopefully get customers to look twice at the G6. If this phone will cost over $700 people are just gonna go with Sammy.

        • #Note5IsBoss #SamsungKnights

          LG has always been worthless on the Android platform that won’t be changing anytime soon.

          The S8 and S8Plus was going to be better than any silly G6 Samsung laughs at LG and Samsung users already know LG is Samsung’s bitch at best.

        • MattPortland

          Oh hell. You’re here now? Ugh

        • marque2

          Nexus 5 was one of the best phones ever. 3 years later.and the wife refuses to upgrade. G4 was an outstanding phone as well. One unpopular phone and you.want to trash the whole company?

        • MattPortland

          Your average smartphone customer doesn’t know anything about mobile processors.

  • Stigasawuswrecks

    Meh….

  • PiCASSiMO

    Not touching this if it’s over $500.

  • Verizonthunder

    Both LG G6 and Samsung S8 are garbage, sorry same specs with a new processor?!? They will not compete with OnePlus 3T, or Huawei mate 9 for value, and specs. Call me, when both companies develop a quality product.

    • thepanttherlady

      Just bought the Huawei Mate 9 and got it on Saturday. Really enjoying it so far. Had to get another Axon 7 too. Such a great phone!

      • Verizonthunder

        Whoa, hey Panther lady ☺️. I am very fascinated by the Huawei mate 9, quite an impressive built

        • thepanttherlady

          Hey there!

          Feels great in hand and so far everything is snappy and smooth. Fingerprint reader is extremely fast. I think it’s even faster than I remember the Axon 7 being. Will test the camera out when I hopefully go hiking this weekend. Rain keeps dampening my plans :/

        • Verizonthunder

          Curious: how’s the battery life?, Ram performance, and charging. Last: will it support T-Mobiles band 12? Thanks panther lady

        • peter guy

          i had the mate 9 but had to return it the one issue i don’t like is the ram management after about 10 or 15 minutes ram ends the app which makes listening to audible and music an no go, if you can live with that i say but the phone, I ended up with the axon 7 very happy sound is good and is on 7.0, vr works also

        • thepanttherlady

          I haven’t had this issue so far. What music apps are you using? I used Amazon Music this past weekend and iHeart Radio during the week at work. During the week, my phone is streaming for minimum of 8 hours. Nothing has shut down on me. Yet.

        • peter guy

          pandora and audible, it happens when the screen is off but when it;s on no issuess, is your screen on

        • thepanttherlady

          No, it’s off and out of the way on my desk.

        • peter guy

          maybe i got an bad one i think i go to best buy and pick one up today and give it another chance really liked the phone did you turn off the Power-intensive prompt

        • thepanttherlady

          No, I still have it on. I rather like it at this point in time because it shows me what’s still using my battery even though I thought the app was closed/off. Radio apps are always first on the list so I just ignore that one and close everything else.

          Started the day at 5:15, phone off charger. Been streaming iHeart radio since 8:30, no charger with minimal use as far as texting, reading news, emails etc. and I’m at 79% battery.

    • #Note5IsBoss #SamsungKnights

      One Plus 3T is useless another bootleg handset sold by One Plus, as for Huawei they are better than One Plus very easily.

      Samsung takes a dump on both of them so easily it’s comical.

      • Verizonthunder

        Lmao to someone who works for Samsung, or never owned a OnePlus to speak on….. Typical noob

      • squiddy20

        I love how, wherever you go, whatever you’re commenting on, you just show up, say something is “useless” or “crappy” or how some Samsung product “takes a dump on” some other product, and then leave. You don’t say anything remotely intelligent. You don’t back up why you think this. And if anyone replies to your comment in a negative way, you start throwing around juvenile insults like a child throwing a temper tantrum. What a joke.

      • Melissa Cardenas

        yes my note 7 took a dump so i had to get rid of it haha

    • marque2

      One plus has good specs, but shoddy implementation. If you have the time to futsz around to get it working- more power.to yah, but it isn’t appropriate.for non tech savvy.

    Off topic but there’s finally a T-mobile store in my town. It opened last Thursday. The closet one was about 10 miles away, but now I’m literally 5 minutes away from the new one. 1st world problems I know but T-mobile should have opened a store here years ago.

    • Trevnerdio

      Bay County, FL – population 175k. One T-Mobile store. Two main cities, takes over an hour to get end to end of the county, but they can’t manage to open a second store.

  • Mike Thaler

    Joining Apple and Samsung w. no removable battery. Might as well go w. Samsung. LG did replace my bootloop board (LG4) when it was 15 months old. Having more and more problems lighting up the screen. Tapping screen often takes several tries and someimes simply do a battery pull. Looks like 6 has no physical button to light the screen.
    What ever happened to HTC?

    Will probably get S8 after first price drop in summer.

    I make use of wifi calling, on occasion, so can’t buy off brand phones others have mentioned. Also like TM’s instant video calling feature – now only available on a few phones.

    • Didacts

      What exactly is off brand and why would that prevent you from using wifi calling? Plenty of phones not sold through T-Mobile can do wifi calling

      • BreakThaLawFTP

        Nope, not T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling…

        • marque2

          My Nexus 5x does Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE and I got that from Google. Not sure what your phone issue is.

  • tim star

    I have been a smartphone user for 10 years.
    Blackberry- Android-Android-blackberry-Windows-Andoid-iphone-Android-iphone-iphone-Android-Android. In that order.
    The worst phone hands down was the LG V10,
    Now happy whit ZTE Zmax pro.

    • Didacts

      The ZTE Max Pro is not better than a V10.

      • tim star

        Have you owned both phones?
        That’s from my personnel experience, will never buy an LG or HTC ever again. Have bin burned by those manufacturers.

        • thepanttherlady

          I own both and agree the ZTE Max Pro is not better. It isn’t bad for the price range but I couldn’t use it for more than a week before I moved on.

  • Bklynman

    Still looking to see if anything comes out to replaces my Note 3,this is not it. Might go unlocked. I checkout the other big 3 lineups,it is like looking at Tmobile lineup of phones. Samsung,Apple,Lg. Some ZTE,HTC,LUMIA, My guess is the carriers don’t want to sell phones no longer,just service,besides Big red lockdown on Moto, It is all the same phones,just like someone reply to another comment I had posted about TMO line up of phones,the US carriers are moving to European way doing business,just service. Does anyone know of a phone besides Note phone,Lg phone that uses a stylus? kinda got use to it.

  • guest

    this site sucks now he only writes on phonedog and nothing about tmobile hire someone or shut it down

    • AM Gone

      Agree. Nothing has been added to the site in four days. Hell of a way to run an airline, eh, website. Should just take the site down. Is not the same site as it used to be. Very little useful info anymore.

      • Acdc1a

        Meanwhile…Some subscribers of Project Fi are getting access to VoLTE on T-Mobile’s network

      • Acdc1a

        I could run the thing with no salary. Just score me some travel to MWC and CES every year.

    • Pot, Meet Kettle

      Yep.

      Cya tmo news.

  • marque2

    I just had my Nexus 5x go into boot loop on me.even though out of warrantee phone will be replaced for free still had to get a new phone. Though I have.to say very impressed with this LG Aristo. Amazing features considering it is only $120.00

  • joemail

    lol. LG management continues to fail.
    this phone is overdue on the release and looks pretty identical to the V20.
    the battery could have been expanded on it, but looks like they under spec’d it.

    Expect this to be $300 out the door 3 months after the release date. I wouldnt ever get another LG phone ever. They do not stand a chance, in performance, battery life, camera, screen vs samsung.

      But that just your opinion. What one man trash is another man treasure!
