However, what still isn’t clear is the level of water resistance present and it’s predicted that it will be at least IP67-certified, thus offering a similar level of protection to the iPhone 7.

In recent weeks LG has revealed almost everything about the upcoming Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone in a series of video teasers and ‘leaks’.

Everything from an impressive 5.7-inch QHD+ Full Vision display and improved UX, to a fingerprint scanner and camera have been leaked by the company.

That’s in addition to the rumour mill that has detailed a pair of dual cameras, a large 3,200mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 821 chip to underpin it all.

The LG G6 will be officially unveiled on February 26 at MWC 2017, when any remaining details will be released.
