    I came across some articles this morning that agree its going to be 1440x2880 resolution but also point out that its going to be QHD+ with a super-wide 18:9 aspect ratio as opposed to the standard 16:9 for most smartphones... I for one am very excited to see this get implemented!!

    I hope you're right. Those sound great. Battery should be bigger but the obsession with thin just won't die. I especially like the 5.7 inch screen and 5 gb of ram so I seriously doubt both of them. LG won't want to compete with its own V20 with a smaller phone with the same screen size. If you're right about those specs I will trade in my v20 for the G6. Heck, I would be happy with a 5.5 inch screen but if LG ever wants a big market share they have to go to oled.

    That was definitely my initial thought when i saw the screen size... i was like, but thats going to compete with its 'V' line of devices so i would presume LG would keep it around 5.2 - 5.3" inches and have the V30 or what ever comes next to have the 5.7" inch screen. Will keep my eyes peeled for any new information and update the post.

    I am looking forward to the launch of the new LG G6 as I want to check out the phone myself. I have been using Samsung phones till date so this

    time I want to try LG G6. They have scraped the modular look and will sport an all glass look so I want to try it out. But does anyone know the LG G6 release date? I am still not sure when this phone is going to release.

    The G6 will not have an all glass body, but they'll have a very reflective metal surface. The unique 5.7" QHD+ screen is a go already with some crazy screen to body ratio and along side that the G6 will have a water resistant body and will boost a very impressive snapper on the back. However, what I really want is for them to keep the IR blaster, Fm radio, removable battery and have stereo speakers as they're the only once still doing these things. Though the removable battery is now becoming increasingly unlikely and I know the G6 will most probably not have stereo speakers but if they do these things (fm radio, IR blaster, rem ba3 and stereo speakers) then I'd get the G6 regardless of whatever any other manufacturer puts out throughout the whole of this year and next.

    From the information that I've read from various websites, it looks like not many devices will be launching between now and MWC on 27th Feb. So i would bet on LG announcing the device on that day and giving launch dates. or possibly even launching it on that day. We will have to wait and see. Would love to know a firm release date now so i can mark it on my calendar!

    Can't see why they would get rid of the IR blaster, but the FM radio gets disabled by carriers like Verizon, so seems like a waste of money to include it anymore. It would totally SUCK if they got rid of the removable battery! Honestly, how freaking thin do these phones need to be??

    The G4 was my first smartphone (and still is). I chose it over the models from Samsung or Motorola, etc. because it had a good camera, removable battery, SD card so I wouldn't have to pay through the nose for memory, controls on the back (so I wouldn't keep accidentally pushing the wrong side button), and curved screen.

    Now that the LG looks to have gotten rid of everything that set them apart from everyone else (but the good camera), why should I think of them when it's time to upgrade? *sigh*

    Great question and welcome to AndroidCentral paterioannijk!

    Well, since the LG G3, G4 & G5 had one i presume and personally hoping that it does come with one. It's a nice little feature. I probably would never use it, but some really love it. I haven't heard any rumours just yet.

    A BGR LED notification light, as an option, would be great.

    If there is no OLED screen, only Snapdragon 821 and the LG UI hasn't gotten better looking, it's a fail.

    This phone just might be the replacement for my Nexus 6. Finding a phone to replace it that has a 6in screen has been very difficult.

    Now that all the carriers are allowing Next Radio the FM chip isn't quite as important.
    The IR Blaster is very important to me as I use it everyday on my V10.
    I'll probably wait on V30 but interested in checking out G6.

    The V-Series will likely move up in screen size.
    It seems like the larger phones are now moving toward 6.0".

    That would make sense except they need a high end phone a little smaller for compact people.

    Body looks metal. That would preclude wireless charging. Has LG ever made a wireless charging phone? Wish my v20 had it.
