LG Suggests G6 Will Be Waterproof
LG today revealed more potential details about its forthcoming G6 flagship handset in a teaser video. LG asked a number of people what they want in a phone, and those in the video say they're looking for something that has a big screen, but is easy to use one-handed, won't get ruined if dropped in the toilet, and has a good camera. LG has already said the G6 will drop the modular design of last year's G5 and will boast a 5.7-inch QHD+ display with thinner bezels. LG may announce the phone as soon as the Mobile World Congress trade show scheduled for February.
