There have been many rumors and reports about the LG V20 which has been confirmed as the first smartphone to come with Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box. It was previously said that the upcoming handset might have some modular aspects like the LG G5 but a new report out of Korea suggests that it may not be modular like LG’s 2016 flagship smartphone.
CNET Korea reports that LG V20 isn’t going to have a modular design like the LG G5 but it’s going to offer some flexibility to users. Apparently, the handset is going to enable customers to access the battery by simply sliding open the back of the V20.
It’s claimed that the LG V20 is going to have a sliding door on the back that’s similar to the HTC Desire HD and that there’s going to be a button on its side which will let users open the left half of the handset.
Doing this will enable users to access the battery, microSD card, and SIM card slot. It’s a different solution than the G5 where users could completely detach the bottom part of the device.
LG is reportedly hoping that this will increase its production yield rate of the V20 and thus enable the company to sell more handsets. Whether or not that actually translates into success in the market remains to be seen.
The company is going to formally unveil the V20 at an event in San Francisco in the very near future.
