LG G6 to arrive with wireless charging and waterproof body

ByinLeaks & Rumors | December 31, 2016

The LG G6 might go official at MWC

Let’s be honest, 2016 was pretty rough for LG, though this time a year ago nothing suggested it would be like this.

It appears that LG learnt a lesson and the G6 is expected to arrive with lots of improvements among which are wireless charging and waterproof body.
