LG said earlier this month that it was thinking about announcing its G6 flagship at Mobile World Congress in February, and it looks like the company has decided to move ahead with the plan. LG has begun sending early invitations or ‘save-the-dates’ to the media for its press event at MWC 2017 event in Barcelona on February 26th. The invite has caption “See More, Play More” along with the event date.
The invitation depicts a serene lake and fireworks overhead. The odd rectangular crop-job also implies a phone will be unveiled. LG has already teased that the G6 will feature a big screen in a compact body for a comfortable one-handed usage and easy to fit in a pocket. It also said that the phone will be comfortable to hold without slipping out of your hand and will be waterproof.
While this invitation doesn’t specifically say that the LG G6 is coming, the timing does line up with what we’ve heard about LG’s plans in the past. Plus, the invitation appears to be in the 18:9 aspect ratio, which is the same aspect ratio of the LG G6’s QHD+ display.
According to earlier rumours, the LG G6 will come with a USB Type-C port on the bottom along with a loudspeaker grill and also include a 3.5 audio jack on the top. It is said to be powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC and come with a new wireless charging module to charge the phone up to 50% in 30 minutes. The LG G6 will not be modular like the G5. Instead, its design is said to comprise of metal and glass, and is expected to be a departure from what LG has made in the past.
The LG G6 is also expected to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack since LG has been one of those companies that tends to stick with things, such as a removable battery which every other major OEM has given up on.
