It looks like LG is ready to better compete against the likes of Samsung, Apple and HTC in 2016 with rumors that its G5 smartphone will rock a metal unibody design.
We saw Samsung dive into a full metal unibody design this year, but we also saw the company take away the replaceable battery and microSD card slot. These two omissions are something LG were able to use against Samsung, as their G4 smartphone had a replaceable battery and microSD card slot. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, did not.
With the release of the V10 smartphone recently, LG has been stepping closer and closer to a truly premium smartphone, but I think that the G5 could really deliver with an awesome design, and keep its customers if it can retain the microSD card slot and removeable battery.
