LG G6 launch invite confirms edge-to-edge screen and Feb 26th due date

LG G6 teaser invite

An invitation to the launch event for the LG G6 has given us our first official look at LG's next flagship smartphone.

The invite shows a handset with an edge-to-edge screen and which is completely free of bezels (those are the borders around the edge of the screen). The result should be a screen that looks a lot bigger than it is.

The invitation also confirms that the phone will be officially launched on 26th February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

According to LG, the phone will have a "Big Screen That Fits".

Recent leaks suggest the phone will have a unique 18:9 aspect ratio. This should allow the phone to be narrower.

Not only will this provide a better fit in the hand, it should also be better suited to Android Nougat's split-screen multitasking skills.

LG revealed a teaser for the launch late last month. That showed what looked like just a screen, though it turns out that could be a picture of the actual bezel-free phone.

The phone is said to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, have a dual-lens camera and dust- and water-proof design.

LG is also thought to be dropping the modular design it opted for with the G5, which allowed consumers to plug in various 'mods' to upgrade the phone.

The phone should go on sale around the start of April, according to prolific leaker Evan Blass.

We'll bring you all the news from the official launch as it happens.
