LG tried its hand at making a modular smartphone with the LG G5 but the idea didn’t really take off as well as the company might have hoped. The LG G5 didn’t really sell well in the market and LG is believed to have gone back to the drawing board with the next-generation flagship. It’s believed that the company might dump the modular design for the LG G6. Latest leaked renders of the LG G6 don’t show a modular design so the Korean company may end up doing this after all.
The leaked renders suggest that while the LG G6 design is going to be quite similar to its predecessor, it’s not going to have the modular element to it, so users won’t be able to swap modular components in order to enhance the functionality of the handset.
It can also be seen that the LG G6 might have a dual camera setup on the back with the fingerprint sensor being placed underneath the rear camera. A USB Type-C port can also be seen in the renders but that was to be expected given that it is the next-generation USB standard and is going to be present on almost all flagship smartphones due next year.
LG fans have preferred the company’s flagships over Samsung devices because the former stuck with the removable battery but if these renders are anything to go by, it appears that LG might also ditch the removable battery in favor of a more slim and sleek design for the LG G6.
LG is expected to unveil the G6 at MWC 2017 in February.
