Glass class of 2017: all-glass LG G6 rumored, headphone jack stays in

It’s already enough that Samsung, the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer, already plasters panes of glass together for its smartphones. Apple might demand a design that will see at least one of its iPhone 8 models look like Samsung’s. Now, we have to talk about LG.

Yes, even the LG G6 will be going all-glass for its chassis, a source tells Android Police‘s managing editor, David Ruddock.

In a tweet, Ruddock also affirms prior chatter that the battery will be embedded into the device — a step away from LG G-series protocol — and with it, the Friends modular accessories system. Amazingly, the headphone jack will be staying put. At least that sets the phone apart from the iPhone 7 and, we now believe, the Galaxy S8.

Mulling other rumors, we also may expect an iris-scanning selfie camera, MST mobile payments a la Samsung Pay and some level of waterproofing.
