According to reports, LG is considering returning to the traditional design because the G5 had low sales and users have complained about some flaws in the modular system. The idea was brilliant, as users were able to replace the battery, camera, to improve the audio quality with a Cam Plus camera module and do many other improvements. But there were discovered gaps in construction, defective modules and because of these problems, the manufacturer will revert back to the integrated smartphone design.
This information comes from the Electronic Times of Korea and if rumors will prove to be true, then the G6 will have a glass and metal design that fans have appreciated until now. The sales of the G5 didn’t go very well, even if LG has tried to come up with a new system that would make any average smartphone buyer buy add-ons to improve the performance of the flagship.
The G5 was supposed to be a hit, but in reality, it was a failure since the day it was released. And if buyers would have wanted to replace the audio module, the one manufactured by Bang & Olufsen wasn’t available in the US, while some users had complained about malfunctioning Cam Plus modules and poor battery life.
Google has cancelled Project Ara, dropping the modular phone dream and if the LG G6 will abandon the modular approach, it will be a sad decision. Either way, the phone is rumored to come with a 4200 mAh battery, a rear camera of 24MP with Optical image stabilization plus, Dual LED, geo tagging, facial recognition and laser focus, a 7MP front camera, a mini projector and stylus, three variants of internal memories, a Snapdragon Qualcomm Octa-core 3.0 GHz processor backed by 5GB of RAM and a 5.6-inch display with a 4K resolution.
