LG G6 is not going to be waterproof


We’re expecting a lot of things from the LG G6, but one thing it might not be is water-resistant, as new renders show it in a waterproof case – something which wouldn’t be necessary if the phone itself was waterproof.

But the absence of any sort of waterproofing on the LG G6 would come as a surprise, as although the LG G5 and other handsets in the range don’t play nice with liquids, an official teaser for a phone believed to be the G6 has mentioned waterproofing.

The renders, posted by Ghostek and spotted by BGR, don’t give a huge amount else away, but the design of the G6 appears to be similar to that of the LG G5, complete with a metal build, a fingerprint scanner on the back and a dual-lens camera. Though this time the camera sits flush with the rear of the phone, whereas on the G5 it sticks out slightly.

Questionable design

Battery could be better
