NO, IP68 dust/water resistance is far from a gimmick. It really works. And now it's becoming standard with top tier manufacturers, so LG has to compete with that feature.
Maybe you are thinking of years past and with lower IP ratings?
i personally am an lg user but think lg should improve on the batteries of their phones and maybe also the heating issue of most lg phones
LG is not known for large battery capacity, at 6.2" OLED display it'll still probably be under 3600mAh & usually the case no stereo speakers either. V series still LG's most innovative device line, G4, V10, G5 & V20 have failed with the "B" issue.
Hi LG please retain IR,Radio and put it back caculator
on the qslide, please place a speaker on both sides as stereo not mono, and must be a water proof device.
waterproofing is never really water-proof to the extent one doesn't have to worry about the phone in water it is just a gimmick... instead of removable battery LG can make an option for people to easily maintain the phone at home with a screwdriver exchange a battery if needed, no reason for fancy brittle glass back which will have to be covered with a case, instead the phone should be made strong.
large 6.2 inch screen size sounds great!
keep the fantastic audio recording microphones from the V20
Calli, 17 Jun 2017Phone looks good but it will be same thing again, mediocre battery life where lg all the time ... moreThat battery life is do to how much power they put into those LCD displays. They push them to their limits to be as good as OLED, but sadly battery life suffers because of it. With the new OLED displays, they'll save a ton of battery life.
Confirmed spec. till now
6.2 inch Oled
PLZ PLZ PLZ LG donot remove IR blaster we need it so much PLZ PLZ PLZ
Anonymous, 31 May 2017That means 90% of phones are garbage shitsSo Galaxy S8 , iPhone 7 , Pixel etc all are garbages?
Phone looks good but it will be same thing again, mediocre battery life where lg all the time loses.. Someone must teach them, without good battery life lg can't sell flagships well.. Keep up crap batteries lg.
MickeyD, 15 Jun 2017The issue with replaceable battery (which I LOVE LG V10 owner here with 3 spare batteries) is ... morethe actual reasoning that it would be "cost prohibitive" to seal batteries is not because the IP rating...it to bring the consumer in to pay extra money for repairs...for new batteries (if supported..some are hardwired or glued to the device)...and planned obsolescence, as the battery is normally, the first component to begin failing.
Now, if graphene batteries take off, (they're prototyping), we can see 7 times capacity and 7 times longevity, which would meet most consumer needs in 1 battery.

Because I... moreThe issue with replaceable battery (which I LOVE LG V10 owner here with 3 spare batteries) is to make the phone water resistant/proof would be cost prohibitive. So it is either water proof/resistant or removable battery. Perhaps in the future doing both will cost less but mean time it is one or the other. :-(

I hope they listen to us..
The top section of the screen (below 2nd display) isnt curved causing the main display to look assymentrical. The selfie cam in the centre looks good but may not be practical if one is going to be using the secondary display (now split in 2). Thats my only issue.
Removable batteries are safer/ more convenient but no company wants to do it anymore SO BE IT. OLEDs are replacing LCDs so again SO BE IT. Just hope they keep the IR blaster and FM radio which is one the main reasons I buy LG flagships. If not well SBI!!!
If LG puts a replaceable battery on this one, I'm almost determined to buy two. Why? Because I fear this might be the last non-consumerist pro-environment flagship phone on the planet. Companies are determined to force us to change phones every 2 years. I strongly disagree. My Galaxy Note 3 is an amazing phone and thanks to the replaceable battery I can use it at least one more year :).
6.2 inch.....wooooow specially if it will be Oled QHD+
Really i want strong speaker and New sensor for IR port..
Big battery with QC 4.0 will be more than dream..
Also 128gb storage with this huge phablet will be ok..
Plz LG we want solid phablet more than flagship
I buy it if battery is removable other wise throw it to the garbage
