From the first look at the LG G6 renders, it feels there won’t be much radical changes happening on this iteration in terms of the display and overall design language. As you can see the notch is still present and that bottom chin doesn’t do justice to the bezel-less future either. Coming to the rear, the dual rear camera setup is now placed horizontally as seen on the LG V series instead of its usual vertical placement. 

You can also see a physical-button fingerprint sensor. In times when the brands like Huawei, Vivo, and OPPO offering in-display fingerprint sensors. Even Samsung is reportedly taking a leap to the under-screen display on its Galaxy S10 lineup. Whereas the LG is still trying to rock a physical-button fingerprint sensor.  

LG G8: not a radical shift!

Talking about the camera department, LG may not upgrade to a triple rear camera setup as far as the G8 renders leaked are concerned. A decision that doesn’t seem to be wise considering the company is offering a triple rear camera on its V40 ThinQ. It’s more surprising is that the laser autofocus seems to be missing from the rear camera setup. The selfie camera experience may improve as the renders suggest a dual lens setup on the front. 

The screen size could be at 6.1-inch considering the dimensions of the body, 152 x 72 x 8.4mm. There seems to be a conventional notch design here which makes the aspect ratio to be at 19.5:9. But interestingly, the company could pull off some design extension as the brand is rumoured to add a display accessory.

As far as the internal specifications of the LG G8 are concerned, there might not be a radical shift to that as well. Considering the handset will arrive at MWC 2019, the brand may or may not introduce the Snapdragon 855, which is Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset.
