The LG G5 stood out in 2016 by having removable battery while also allowing users to add accessories. For 2017, it looks like the handset’s successor, the LG G6, will be completely ditching the modular design in favor of a sleeker look.

Earlier today, a render of the LG G6 was shared online by @OnLeaks on Twitter. The photo only shows that device’s backside confirming that it will still have the dual-camera setup and the fingerprint scanner.

A batch of detailed renders also show that the overall look of the LG G6 isn’t far off from the G5. However, the 5.3-inch quad-HD display on the G6 will be entirely flat instead of being contoured like on the G5. The renders have also confirmed that the LG G6 won’t have the same modular design of the G5. The collection of renders were published by Gear India (My Smart Price).

If these renders are accurate, it looks like LG’s “Friends” accessories for the G5 won’t be compatible with the LG G6. The LG Friends accessories are only able to attach to the G5 by removing the bottom portion of the handset. In the renders of the LG G6, there’s no indication that it will have any detachable parts.

That may be a disappointment for some, but at least LG isn’t abandoning the 3.5mm headphone jack which is present on the top edge of the device. The LG G6 also comes equipped with a USB Type-C port on the bottom edge accompanied by the mic and what looks to be a bottom-firing speaker.

The LG G6, unlike LG’s previous handsets, will come in glossy and matte finishes for its back panel. There’s a rumor going around that LG might use a “highly reflective metallic material” for the G6’s back panel.

The LG G6 is expected to be announced in February 2017 during the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
