All-glass everything will set the standard in smartphone design in 2017.
According to reports, Samsung will continue with its all-glass design when it comes to the Galaxy S8, Apple plans to release a glass touting iPhone 8, and now LG reportedly has plans to implement an all-glass design with the G6.
The latest rumblings on the internet indicate LG is letting go its modular “Friends” dream of the G5, and is equipping the G6 with a non-removable battery. In addition, while other manufacturers are scrapping the 3.5mm headphone jack, LG is reportedly keeping the standard port on its upcoming device.
Previous rumours indicated that LG will forgo a curved design for the G6 because it’s currently suffering a lack of curved OLED panels. Instead, the company will opt for the same flat IPS screen that the G5 utilized. As for additional features, LG will be doubling down and plans to include an iris scanner, in the G6.
