LG G6 render reveals no sign of modular design
The LG G5 was one of most interesting smartphone of 2016, sporting an innovative semi-modular design. Even though the G5 got lots of praise, it failed to take off and sales were disappointing. One of the problem with the LG G5 was that whenever you had to swap the modular accessories, a restart was needed.
Multiple reports in the past have claimed that LG will ditch the modular approach for its upcoming flagship G6, in favor of a sleeker looks. Now renders of LG G6 have surfaced courtesy of Gear in collaboration with Onleaks, revealing the design.
As seen in the render, LG G6 will have a design similar to G5 carrying forward the dual-rear camera setup and rear-mounter fingerprint scanner. However, the modular element is missing in the design, as there is no indication of any detachable parts on the G6. Other details seen in the render are USB Type-C port, metal frame, and thankfully the 3.5mm jack is still there.
So far, the rear panel of LG’s flagship devices was removable, but according to Gear India, the rear panel of LG G6 may not be removable. Moreover, the rear panel is said to be made of “highly reflective metallic material” and will sport a glossy or matte finish.
The LG G6 will reportedly feature 5.3-inch Quad HD display, similar to G5, but will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor and support wireless charging. The dimensions of LG G6 are 148.8mm x 72.3mm x 8.3mm.
LG is expected to unveil the LG G6 at MWC 2017 in February next year.
