Rumor: LG G4 Note To Feature Removable Battery
According to recent rumor, the upcoming LG G4 Note will feature a removable battery, something that is missing in recent high-end smartphones. The G4 Note will offer a removable battery, and will retain the "trademark" back-fitted button configuration.
A lot of phones these days tend to have fixed batteries, to have sleeker phone with less moving parts, but at the same time it also means that once your battery starts losing its ability to store its charge, either you'd have to fork out for an expensive repair, or buy a new phone.
While some speculate that LG's decision to go for removable battery is due to the difficulties of acquiring / manufacturing metal chassis, industry watchers believes that the company might simply want to capitalize on this particular piece of the market, and continue to offer removable battery solutions to those who find the feature useful.
On the other hand, LG will most likely continue to focus its efforts on further improving other features such as the camera, which might translate into a dual camera setup for the LG G4 Note. It might also continue to offer support for microSD card for storage expansion.
For better or worse, removable batteries are slowly but surely becoming extinct in the world of premium smartphones. Unibody design with fast charging capabilities are slowly replacing removable back covers. Even Samsung, which was one of the last major smartphone makers to jump on the non-removable battery bandwagon, has switched gears with the release of the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Edge+ and Note 5.
Remember this is pure rumor with no substantial proof to support it. In addition, there is no word on when this alleged LG G4 Note will be announced, or if it will pack any of the features we have heard so far, but hopefully we will not have to wait too long for an answer.
