Renders of four new cases for the LG G6 surfaced online on Monday. Apart from providing consumers with a look at some new protective cases for LG's upcoming Android flagship, the images also seemingly confirm numerous reports according to which the LG G6 will feature a dual camera setup and a rear fingerprint scanner. All four renders originally obtained by Gizmochina can be seen in the gallery below.
The LG G6 will be announced at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) as the South Korean consumer electronics manufacturer will officially unveil the device on February 26th, as they confirmed last week. LG is reportedly looking to release its latest and greatest flagship as soon as possible, mainly due to its desire to beat the Galaxy S8 to the market. Recent reports indicate that the company believes the LG G5 was late to the market last year which apparently played a big part in its lackluster commercial performance. Therefore, the Seoul-based tech giant isn't keen to repeat its mistakes from last year and will likely be launching the LG G6 before spring. Due to that strategy, the LG G6 will probably ship with the Snapdragon 821 instead of the Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip as LG presumably believes that decision makes sense given the current market situation. Recent leaks indicate that the company's upcoming Android flagship will feature an almost bezel-less design and boast a 5.7-inch display panel with an unconventional resolution of 2880 by 1440 pixels, which amounts to an 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone is also expected to ship with 4GB of RAM and Android Nougat running out of the box.
LG's phone division has been struggling to make money in recent years which is why the Seoul-based phone maker is hoping that the LG G6 will be a hit among consumers and help the company bounce back after numerous consecutive quarters of poor financial performance. While the LG G5 was a unique device in many aspects, it didn't manage to attract the average consumer which is why the company opted to design the LG G6 as a more conventional smartphone, but time will tell whether that decision will pay off.
