CNET Korea reports that LG V20 isn’t going to have a modular design like the LG G5 but it’s going to offer some flexibility to users. Apparently, the handset is going to enable customers to access the battery by simply sliding open the back of the V20.
It’s claimed that the LG V20 is going to have a sliding door on the back that’s similar to the HTC Desire HD and that there’s going to be a button on its side which will let users open the left half of the handset.
Doing this will enable users to access the battery, microSD card, and SIM card slot. It’s a different solution than the G5 where users could completely detach the bottom part of the device.
LG is reportedly hoping that this will increase its production yield rate of the V20 and thus enable the company to sell more handsets. Whether or not that actually translates into success in the market remains to be seen.
