According to a report by GSM Arena, the images, which are renders for Ringke protective cases, showed different looks of LG's upcoming flagship smartphone, with the design being consistent with those that appeared in photos that were leaked earlier. The new images show the phone sporting a dual-camera and a fingerprint scanner, which are both placed strategically at the back of the unit.

Based on the images, there is a big chance that the LG G6 will showcase a clean front that is free of any physical buttons. Moreover, fans can expect its 5.7-inch display to have slim bezels, while the bottom part will make room for a USB Type-C port. The top part, on the other hand, will accommodate a headphone jack, while the two volume buttons can be found on the left side.

Meanwhile, Phone Arena reported that LG gave a new teaser for the G6 through its invitations for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. The invites showed an image of the smartphone's home screen with the words "Big Screen" on top. Beside it is another image that shows a sketch of the G6 being held by a hand, with the words "That fits" also written on top.

The release of the the LG G6 has been highly-anticipated as tech critics and enthusiasts are focusing all of their attention on it, considering the dismal reception its predecessor received compared to its stiffest rival, the Galaxy S7, from fellow Korean tech giant Samsung.

Although the final details for the new LG flagship have not been announced yet, the company released a YouTube video last month, showing the features that smartphone users would want to see the most. The features mentioned in the video include waterproofing, a big screen, a smaller body, a "capture-it-all-at-once" camera, and reliability.

The LG G6 was earlier announced to debut during the MWC on Feb. 26, with LG sending out invites for the media last month to the event which will be held in Barcelona, in Spain.
