There’s a lot of excitement in the air concerning the new flagship smartphones that are due at the Mobile World Congress 2017 later this month. LG is one of the companies that’s going to be in Barcelona to unveil a new flagship smartphone. The company has confirmed some minor details about the new device but it hasn’t shown it off just yet.

Today we’re being treated to what’s claimed to be a leaked photo of the LG G6’s front panel. LG has already confirmed that the LG is going to feature a “Full Vision” display, that’s one way of saying that the handset is going to have very slim bezels.

The leaked photo does show an extra-wide 5.7-inch display said to tout Quad HD 1,440×2,880 pixel resolution. The photo is in line with previous leaks that we’ve seen so far, the camera and sensor placement appears to be the same, with the LG logo placed below the display.

Reports also suggest that this is likely going to be the first non-Pixel handset to feature Google Assistant while LG itself confirmed earlier today that the G6 is going to feature an upgraded Quad DAC for an enhanced audio experience. The LG G6 will be formally unveiled on February 26th in Barcelona.
