Will there be anything about the LG G6 left for LG to actually announce at Mobile World Congress?

The official start of Mobile World Congress 2017 is only a few days away, with most of the large manufacturers (except Samsung) expected to announce their new handsets on Sunday 26 February.

LG has already had something of a head start thanks to its display division announcing the screen and a teaser video showing off how the new UI will use its unusual 18:9 resolution.

The LG G6 will almost certainly be an Android 7.0 phone, and it’s highly likely to run on the Snapdragon 821 rather than the newer Snapdragon 835, with rumours pointing to Samsung snaffling up all the early production run on the newer processor.

The latest feature that LG’s keen to show off on a phone it technically hasn’t announced just yet is its capability for water resistance.

LG hasn’t stated what level of water resistance the LG G6 is likely to have, but beyond that it is leaving very few surprises in store for its premium 2016 handset. We’ll be reporting live from LG’s launch this weekend, so stay tuned for our early impressions.
