Now that the LG G5 is out and available for over 8 months (sales figures unimpressive) and with the LG V20 (worlds first smartphone running Android 7.0 Nougat) slowly but quietly hitting the shelves around the world, everyone’s attention heads towards LG Electronics’ next flagship smartphone, the LG G6, which is expected to arrive in the first half of 2017.

In a recently published article by the Korean Chosun website, it has been said that LG is struggling to produce a similar curved on both edges OLED panel like Samsung is able to manufacture for a few years now, which will likely force LG to release the LG G6 with a flat IPS display and metal body design instead. And, then, there is the high cost of the entire procedure of developing such technology.

The G6 will also feature magnetic resonance wireless charging technology, or so the publication claims in its article.The technology is not apparently ready to recharge devices that are further than 2-3cm away from the wireless charger itself, although some companies successfully developed technologies that can recharge a phone from 7 centimeters away. Such technology will likely be available in the G7, but not sooner than 2018.
