The LG G6 will be launched at the Mobile World Congress next month and we already know that it will be the first phone in the world to sport a display with 18:9 aspect ratio. While we did get our "first look" at the upcoming smartphone via a leaked render about a month ago, this is probably the real deal.


Although the image isn't exactly what I would call revealing, it does show a few things about the G6 that we had been expecting. The bezels look minimised and the source mentions that the screen-to-body ratio is actually more than 90%. The only other things which the image reveals are the front camera, sensors and the volume buttons at the left side of the phone. Until a more revealing image leaks out, take a look at the specs which we already know about, mostly via the courtesy of rumors.

It has now been made official by LG that the upcoming G6 will sport the world's first QHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The 18:9 aspect ratio will be spread over a 5.7-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels. The 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution will give the G6's display a ppi of 564. According to the Korean electronics giant, the wider ratio will allow for better immersion while consuming media or playing games. Additionally, it has been mentioned that the G6 will also support better multi-tasking with dual screen functionalities.


The display on the G6 won't feature a touch cover glass, something that has so far been necessary in order for a smartphone to be touch-responsive. Instead, LG's in-TOUCH technology will make use of touch sensors embedded into the very LCD panel itself. What would be the point of that you may ask? LG says that it will result in a more sensitive touch response and improved sunlight visibility. Not to mention the fact that the lack of the touch cover glass on top will allow for the G6's display to be as slim as just a single millimetre!

2017 is almost here and as usual, all OEMs around the world are preparing to launch their new flagships for the new year. LG is still one of the biggest names in the business, but lately, they have been struggling in terms of sales. The company is of course, depending on the upcoming G6 to get themselves out of the rut that they seem to have fallen in recently. We have a few renders and a bit of info on the LG G6 for you today that may give us an insight onto what the Korean giant has planned for 2017.



The leak by Shai Mizrachi (brought to us via the courtesy of Android Authority) shows a design language that's not much different from what we saw last year on the G5. However, at 72.43 mm thickness, it's probably going to be more than a millimetre slimmer than the G5 (73.9 mm). Other rumors around the phone indicate that the G6 may sport a 5.2-inch/5.5-inch QHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB/6GB of RAM and a dual camera module, reminiscent of the LG V20. If you are wondering if the G6 will have modular capabilities like its predecessor, nobody knows yet. Do you like what you see, or is the G5-ish design putting you off?

Although LG V20 was the first phone to sport Android Nougat 7.0 right out of the box, the LG G5 has only just begun to receive its first taste of Nougat since last week, when the Sprint versions began to receive it via OTA. Reports all around have confirmed that the T-Mobile version of the LG G5 has just started to receive the 1.2GB OTA file. As expected, the update package also contains the November security release.



Even though the details or the news itself has not yet been updated on the support page of T-Mobile, users on Reddit and XDA Developers Forum have revealed the build number to be NRD90U. In case you want to search for it manually, go to Settings > General > About phone > Update centre > System update > Check for update. In case it has already landed on your LG G5, we recommend using a Wi-Fi connection to download the rather large file. We are pretty sure it's more or less the same build that we saw on the LG V20.
