Earlier in the week we got several leaked images of the LG G6 prototype showing off the dual lens camera setup and rear fingerprint scanner placement. Just after that another image showing the LG G6 in the wild leaked out. It seemed to show either a shiny black version of the phone or a glass back. If it was a glass back that would allow for wireless charging.
New images leaked out yesterday which may put an end to the wireless charging glass back rumors. They show off a brushed metal back. The photos were released by "UnderKG" on youtube. The images showcase the phone's 5.7" display with nearly no bezels. We can see the 3.5mm jack placement on the top of the phone, and usb-c and single speaker on the bottom of the device. The phone also looks quite thick which could indicate a larger battery which would be great! While the phone looks pretty similar to phones we have seen in the past it looks quite clean.
There is speculation that the device won't release with the Snapdragon 835 since Samsung was able to claim the first run of these chips. Either the LG G6 will release with the Snapdragon 821 or it will see a later release. It is expected to be announced in a few weeks at Mobile World Congress. If LG has to wait several months to release the phone in order to include the Snapdragon 835 the wait may do them more harm than good. Personally I don't mind waiting, but phones tend to do better if they are released shortly after being announced. The good news is we will know for sure soon!
