As already know, the LG G6 is placed as a new try of them South Koreans by return to fight in the segment more prolific of the market of smartphones, the models premium. For such objective, the manufacturer already would have profiled the new strategy with a smartphone not modular since this innovation applied in the LG G5 not has generated the interest that is expected.
