LG to Drop Modular Design for G6 Flagship

Jan 4, 2017, 7:54 PM   by Eric M. Zeman

LG's 2017 flagship handset will move away from the modular design the company debuted with last year's G5 and will instead focus on aesthetics and usability, reports the Wall Street Journal. The G5 featured a removable bottom piece that could be replaced with snap-in modules. The phone was largely considered a flop. Consumer feedback made clear that most people aren't interested in modular phones and won't pay extra for the modules. LG will announce the G6 "in the very near future," according to Chief Technologist Skott Ahn. The company may reveal the phone at the Mobile World Congress trade show in February, but is still considering several other dates. LG plans to initially sell the G6 in North America, Europe, and South Korea. The price is expected to fall between $500 and $600.
