LG: You seem to want to turn away from the modular smartphone




LG: You seem to want to turn away from the modular smartphone – the G6 is to increase sales again Hurray, long live the modularity! So it was still in March, when the LG G5 came on the market. At that time, some media were enthusiastic about the concept of interchangeable modules, which should expand the device meaningfully. Quickly, however, came the disillusionment when one realized that one was forced to still have to drag these modules along with them when they needed them later. Also, the added value of the devices was not as high as previously expected. Sascha reported at the time extensively from the G5. Now it seems rumored to have changed to think of LG. Supposedly the company did not continue its idea of ​​the modular smartphone.

One would not be buryed by unsuccessful innovations, but rather to show success with conventional ideas. The G6, which is expected to be released in 2017, is set to revert to previous standards. So manufacturers of chips and boards have already been instructed by LG, that one has adopted the modularity.

The company wants to hear more about the wishes of customers. After Samsung with the note 7 neatly messed up the statistics, came LGs V20 exactly at the right moment and excited the buyer more than LG first expected. If the G6 afterwards still rehauhaut, then one should also recover from the “G5-Misére” 😉
