LG, earlier this year, launched the LG G5 with modular design as its USP. It was the company’s first attempt at modular tech. While it managed to impress a few, mostly received mixed reviews from both critics and users alike owing to the poor implementation of modularity by the company. However, new rumours are hitting the web indicating that the company had already started working on its successor, the LG G6.
If rumours are anything to go by, the LG G6 may ditch the modular design in favour of a seamless body (a standard one). This aligns with the earlier rumours which claim that the company will no longer be concentrating on a modular design for its upcoming flagship.
However, as opposed to the earlier rumours, the LG G6 is purported to feature a non-removable battery. Furthermore, the new leak claims that the smartphone will finally come with wireless charging support. Also, according to the rumours, the smartphone will be completely waterproof in addition to being water-resistant.
In addition, the smartphone is expected to introduce a new mobile payment system (most likely called the LG Pay) much like Apple Pay.
There are no words on the internals but, it should presumably come powered with Snapdragon 835 chipset (like most of the smartphones will in 2017).
Also, it was earlier rumoured that the smartphone will feature an iris scanner much like the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
All said and done, LG definitely has to come up with some unique features to differentiate itself from the flagship devices from its competitors.
