By on

The LG G5?s iconic modular design has been its best feature to date. This enabled users to essentially upgrade the phone without actually buying a new one. However, this is about to end according to a recent report. LG, as it turns out, is already abandoning the modular design for the LG G6 smartphone that will be releasing soon.

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, LG is veering away from the modular design for the upcoming G6 phone. The report also mentioned that the company considers the modular design as ?non-pivotal? to the sales performance of the G5.

Instead of the modular design feature, LG is focusing more on making the LG G6 more functional. This could mean that LG will be introducing new features to the G6 that will bring it at par with the likes of the Galaxy S8.

According to earlier rumors, the LG G6 will sport the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip. This will be paired with a 6GB RAM and a minimum of 64GB storage. The display size is said to be a 5.3-inch AMOLED display with a QHD resolution.

As for the aesthetics, rumor has it that the LG G6 will not have an all-glass design. However, the case will have a highly reflective metallic backing. The metallic backing may rule out earlier reports of wireless charging for the phone. However, since it features the Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm?s Quick Charge technology will also be featured.

The dual camera setup is said to remain with the LG G6. However, there is a high chance that LG will update the cameras with much better sensors. Furthermore, it will also include Qualcomm?s Clear Sight imaging technology for improved image quality.
