The new LG G5 smartphone looks interesting with the expansion module, but hasn’t this been done before and FAILED? I don’t think consumers will be bothered with the hassle of carrying expansion modules around. Besides, won’t this feature increase the thickness of the phone?
“LG has announced a modular Android smartphone that can gain extra functions via add-on parts. Components are plugged in by pulling off the base of the G5 phone and swapping it for an alternative unit.”
“Google is known to be working on a modular phone of its own, but the concept is far from mainstream. One expert said the idea would help LG stand out from its rivals, but added that it was too soon to know whether it would turn around the firm’s fortunes.”
