LG dared to be different last year when it debuted the LG G5, one of the two flagship smartphones it released. However, as fate would have it, not many were very ready for a radical shift from the way their devices traditionally functioned and this had a huge impact in the lacklustre G5 sales numbers it resulted in.
Yes, we all wanted a way to replace our device’s battery, something that was increasingly becoming rare for premium smartphones, but no one was ready to entertain the infamous gap that made many criticise the G5’s design or to buy the costly accessories (Friends) that could take advantage of the detachable chin.
LG seems to have taken note of this as its Chief Technology Officer, speaking to The Wall Street Journal, admitted that the G5’s successor, the G6, won’t be modular.
The LG G6 is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, next month.
