lg_g6About a week ago, casemaker Ghostek published renderings of its upcoming case for the LG G6, which in the process revealed a render of the handset in question, or at least that was what was thought. Turns out the render might be pretty close to the real deal, thanks to a recent report from The Verge.

The publication has recently managed to obtain what they are alleging is a rendering of the LG G6. Due to the shadows and lighting of the photo/rendering, it’s hard to tell what the full design looks like, but like we said it doesn’t seem to be too far off from what we saw earlier, but it does seem to confirm that the phone will be a pretty sleek affair.

In terms of specs, The Verge has learnt that the headphone jack on the phone will remain, which should hopefully quell any fears that LG will follow in Apple’s “courageous” footsteps by ditching the headphone jack in favor of USB-C/Bluetooth headphones. They also have learnt that the phone will be waterproof, which seems to be in line with what LG had previously teased, and that the phone’s battery will no longer be replaceable.

Other confirmed features include heat pipes meant to help dissipate the heat generated by the phone and a 5.7-inch QHD+ 18:9 display. LG will be showing off the device at MWC 2017 which kicks off on the 26th of February, so check back with us then for more updates.
