To make the first impression even stronger the leak comes backed up with a series of photos presenting the device in its whole beauty.
The latest trend in the smartphone industry says that bezels are démodé, and should be as minimal as possible. Conscious of that LG is trying to meet this aesthetic demand and designs a bezel-less LG G6. This is at least what the company’s invitation to the MWC show tells us. Scheduled to debut on February 26th, the G6 will come with “Big Screen… That Fits.”
Next Blackberry phone featuring full QWERTY hardware keyboard and a svelte design to be announced at MWC
For the past three years BlackBerry has been struggling to stay afloat. Having hit quite a few rough patches, the Canadian manufacturer finally gave in and decided to license the BlackBerry brand to TCL. The very last phone made by BlackBerry was supposed to be a device codenamed Mercury, as we reported last week. The handset was expected to go official at CES and it did. Well, sort of, anyway. The Mercury is not even on sale yet and TCL is already teasing another device. The next Blackberry phone featuring full QWERTY hardware keyboard and a svelte design probably will be announced at MWC, at the end of February.
Let’s be honest, 2016 was pretty rough for LG, though this time a year ago nothing suggested it would be like this.

Even the premium V20 didn’t manage to save the day and the manufacturer is ending the year with nearly $400 million loss. However, new year is a chance to impress users with a new flagship. 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.
