Leaked snaps unveil LG G6 with unusual display feature

Although the LG G6 is just a week away from officially being launched, leaks relating to its features are continuing to emerge. Now images published by 9to5Google have shown that its display may well come with always-on functionality, meaning that things like the time, date and alerts will be shown even if the screen is locked.

Meanwhile the metal-clad rear of the phone not only has a pair of camera lenses, but also a fingerprint scanner to bolster security.

The G6 should be a flagship phone in most respects, with power provided by the Snapdragon 821 chipset and 4GB of RAM, while standard storage will sit at 32GB and a microSD card slot is provided.

With a 5.7 inch screen, this will be a true phablet, designed to compete with the iPhone 7 Plus. LG will be unveiling it next Sunday during the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona, after which it should hit the shops in a month or two.

LG has been a lot more experimental in its smartphone designs than its closest rivals, which is a trend that the G6 looks set to continue, thanks to its left of field features.
