Upcoming LG G6 flagship expected to be waterproof and non-modular

The latest round of G6-related rumors does not look great, as we hear once again that the upcoming flagship will no longer offer the chance to use modules. However, it seems like the LG G6 will hit the market with water resistance and a removable battery.

The LG G5 flagship is a handset without any major flaws, in fact, its ability to use mods is something that most top-of-the-line smartphones do not offer at this time. Unfortunately, it seems that its successor will drop the modular design. The good part is that the LG G6 might pack quite a few ideas that time has proven to be the right choices.

According to a recent post on Weibo, LG G6 will be waterproof. Sadly, being waterproof and modular is quite impossible at this time, since modules need to be easily attached and removed. Even more, the commercial failure of the modular LG G5 flagship probably forced the company to drop this design - at least for the time being.

LG did not confirm anything about the upcoming flagship, but the rumors we heard recently mentioned iris recognition, a removable battery, MST mobile payment capabilities, as well as a flat display (it seems the curved edge handsets are not as reliable as they should be, so this seems like a very smart choice, next to the removable battery).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
