LG has plans to show off the G5 soon, but that hasn’t stopped the leaks from finding their way online well ahead of that announcement.
The latest new image shows off what is known as the “Magic Slot,” which will be a detachable part of the device that will let you attach different modules for specific features. One major focus of the Magic Slot will be for photography, for instance. But before you get to add a bunch of different accessories to the phone, you’ll start with a battery.
An image that is reportedly of the bottom piece of the G5, with its removable battery in the frame as well, has found its way onto the Chinese social networking site Weibo. The bottom of the device, looks like it’s the same bottom piece of the G5 that leaked out not too long ago, and the green battery very distinctly has a G5 logo printed on it for good measure.
The Magic Slot is an interesting idea, especially for folks that want to expand their smartphone’s use case. One of the Magic Slot accessories is said to be the LG Cam Plus, which will reportedly include hardware camera controls, while also adding a 1100mAh battery for good measure.
And if you’ve been itching to see what the front and back of the G5 look like without the seemingly necessary camera blur from photos captured in the wild, Evan Blass (@evleaks) has a pair of renders that show the front and back of the upcoming flagship. The design is one that should stand out, especially with that dual-camera design. What do you think of it?
