The past few weeks have been marred with incessant leaks of the LG G6, and today is no different. LG confirmed a few weeks ago that it would announce something big at Mobile World Congress on February 26, but Evan Blass stole its thunder publishing official press renders of the phone today.

Evan Blass, better known as evleaks, published renders on his Twitter account that reveal a design we’re very much familiar with. The images line-up with the most recent leaks. They offer better close ups of the supposed phone and give us a better look at the it’s design and details.
The G6 in the images features the big front display with minimal bezels and rounded out edges. The back of the phone contains the dual-camera setup with the dual-LED flash in between them and the fingerprint scanner just a few centimeters below. The glossy back looks like it may be made of glass (similar to the Galaxy S7) while the frame looks to be made of metal with the familiar antenna bands all aluminum phones rely on. The volume buttons will be on the left side while the right side will house the SIM-card slot.
There’s still the off chance this may not be the phone LG reveals, but it’s looking more like it will.
Earlier rumors suggested the phone would pack a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, Quad HD display, 18:9 aspect ratio and 3,200mAh battery.
LG looks to beat Samsung at its own game
If these images turn out to be the real G6, it looks like LG is setting its sights on Samsung. It has similar design cues to the S7 and Note 7 line like the glass back and metal frame. The black color of the leaks gives the phone a great stealthy look too, quite similar to the Note 7’s Black Onyx version that was a beauty.
Samsung’s phones have been a huge hit design-wise and it’s good to see LG take note. It is now giving consumers what they want; a sleek, industrial phone that is premium. In this situation, us the consumers end up winning.
