MWC 2017: LG G6 Teased With Dust and Water-Resistance

LG G6 water resistance

Mobile World Congress is one week away, guys, and companies are teasing their devices like nobody’s business! LG has so far given us info regarding the almost bezel-less display and dual rear cameras of LG G6, only to unveil yesterday evening two other features: dust- and water-resistance #mobilemagic

The company took to Facebook to upload two short clips suggesting the smartphone’s increased resistance to dust, as well as water. In one clip, a woman is seen swimming in a pool casually, with no care in the world. The clip is accompanied by a copy that implies the water-resistance feature: “Taking a day off at the pool? Just relax and enjoy LG G6”

Another similarly branded video shows a table covered in flower where an LG G6 would sit comfortably:

In both cases, the message is clear: you can bring your smartphone everywhere – pool or kitchen – without worrying about the damage water or powder could do.

This week has been filled with such teasers; a different one showed in detail how the square camera worked and it may have revealed the guide mode we were talking about yesterday:

As you can see, this looks like a wonderfully simple way of taking photos for Instagram and comparing pictures. It especially looks good on a phone with such a surprising ratio like the LG G6 – 18:9. Of course, the majority of apps will still be running in the 16:9 format but LG says this is not a problem per say since the device includes a feature that is going to allow you to view that content as easily as you would have done on another smartphone.

More about the dual rear camera module, including the wide-angle lens, here!

We’ll keep you informed about LG G6 official specs and remarkable features in the following weeks, as we cover Mobile World Congress (27 February – 2 March)!
