The LG G6 could be the company's most impressive device to date
The LG G6 has leaked online again as hype around this new Android flagship continues to build.
A new photo claiming to show off the device appears to show that LG has looked to borrow some of the most eye-catching features from other top Android devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S7.
The leak comes just weeks ahead of the expected LG G6 release date at the Mobile World Congress trade show Barcelona later this month.
The photo gives a clear look at the device rumoured to be the LG G6
The new image, which was shown off by Business Insider, shows a sizeable device that appears to confirm several existing rumours.
This includes suspicions that the LG G6 will sport a rear fingerprint scanner, alongside a dual-lens camera which should be the company’s most powerful sensor yet.
Most intriguingly, the photo shows a whole new design for the LG G6 that appears to borrow heavily from Apple’s infamous ‘Jet Black’ iPhone 7 glass design.
The device appears to be extremely shiny in the photo, and has already attracted a number of smudged fingerprints – one of the major criticisms of Apple’s design.

Other reports have claimed that the LG G6 will include an iris scanner, much like the doomed Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
This would allow users to unlock their device without needing to enter a password or even touch their phones.
The body of the device is expected to be made entirely from metal and curved glass – a departure from the leather and plastic that characterised the Korean company's previous flagship smartphones.
LG has also reportedly abandoned the modular “Friends” design that made its previous flagship phone, the LG G5, stand out amongst the crowd.
