With launch of LG G6 just around the corner, leaks and rumors around the device are making round on almost daily basis. Today, a new image of LG’s upcoming flagship phone has leaked on the web which shows a fully assembled LG G6 front panel.

From the looks of it, LG G6 will sport a 5.7-inch Quad-HD curved display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone will also shed the modular design of the LG G5 as a response to “feedback that consumers aren’t interested in modular phones.”

The LG G6 front panel image also shows a front camera lens at the top alongside the receiver occupying a very small space, while the bottom chin of the phone is holds the LG logo.

Some reports also hint at an OLED panel for the new flagship phone, but it seems unlikely considering the company previously struggled with the displays in the arena of smartphones.

Under the hood, the handset is likely to be powered by by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM, while its storage information is still unknown.

Previous reports suggest that the phone will ditch the metal body in favor of a tempered-glass back. Though David Ruddock of Android Police believes it would have a solely glass design, while featuring “a highly metallic material on the rear”.

On its rear, the LG G6 boasts a dual camera lens with the fingerprint scanner sitting below it. For power, the phone will feature a non-removable battery, with Quick Charge 4.0 technology that is capable of providing power for up to five hours with five minutes of charging.

The company is expected to launch the LG G6 on February 26 at a pre-MWC event. In terms of price, LG shouldn’t deviate too far from that of the G5, expecting the next-gen flagship phone to be priced around the $650 mark.
