LG might kill off modular design in G6

When the LG G5 debuted in April, it made waves with its unique modular-like design. Its removable battery can be swapped out from the phone's bottom chin, and other accessories like a camera grip and a digital-to-analog audio converter, can be attached to give the handset additional functionality.Now a new report from the company's home of South Korea claims LG's next flagship smartphone, the G6, will have no such swap features. It's simply because it turns out that people aren't interested in such gimmicks and just want the best features to already be in their top of the line smartphone when they buy it, not be upsold expensive accessories on top of that.

LG G6 won't have any Friends as the company gives up on modular accessories

LG has yet to confirm or deny this new report, and as always, unconfirmed stories like this should be taken with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, it does sound plausible that LG is trying to make its next flagship phone with a more traditional design, and move away from the still unproven modular idea. The G5 has clearly not been LG's most successful flagship offering, not even close, which might have something to do with the convoluted modular system which required taking out the battery every time you wanted to connect an accessory.
