LG’s next flagship phone is only a matter of weeks away and the latest churning of the rumor mill suggests a bigger battery than any other phone in the G series – but one that would no longer be removable.
It’s the first time LG has opted for a non-removable battery since the original Optimus G in 2012.
The source claims the phone is also water resistant, so that’s likely the reason the battery is now baked into the phone itself.
Lose a feature, gain battery
Some will be disappointed you aren't able to hot-swap the battery out on the fly, but the upgraded size is more important to most phone fans.
Seeing a slightly larger battery does not gurantee improved battery life though - we'll be sure to put the phone through extensive testing when we get our hands on the phone for review.
LG is planning a press conference on February 26 in Barcelona right before Mobile World Congress 2017, where we expect to see the LG G6 for the very first time.
