The Galaxy S8 is not the only hotly anticipated flagship for February next year. LG is also expected to unveil the LG G6, the successor to the innovative G5.
The first reports on the LG G6 brought us some interesting info - the G6 will be dropping the Friends expansion in favor of a sealed body and seamless design.

The company has already released a Japan-exclusive V34 water-resistant smartphone (a V20 offspring), so there is that, too.

Sony fans don't care they keep repeating in ad nauseam that their brand was the first.
