Finally, we now actually have a picture showing the immensely rumored ‘Magic Slot’ in the upcoming LG’s flagship, LG G5. This ‘ glimpse’ rather shows the Magic slot module with a complete battery attached to one of its end.
This picture all-but confirmed the previous rumors that a module pops open at the bottom of the smartphone, bringing out the removable-battery inside. Unfortunately this picture just encapsulates the box which is supposedly carrying a battery of G5, rather than showing the close-up view of the module itself.
Rumors are that the module is not only just removed to free the battery, it is called the Magic Slot for a reason. Based on recent reports and rumors, This module can be removed to be replaced with 2 different ones. First: a secondary camera which might be called LG Cam Plus. The second one, however, will reportedly feature a an audiophile grade DAC (aka LG Hi-FI Plus). Interestingly enough, this morning LG announced in a press release that they have been working in partnership with Bang & Olufsen to bring premium audio to the upcoming G5. So, our speculations are that this might be the second module which we mentioned behind.
Apart from these, here are some other anticipated features and specifications of the upcoming LG G5. LG’s smartphone will be featuring none other than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4 GB RAM, fingerprint reader, metal design with a removable battery. Furthermore, it will feature an Always on Display which will allow its users to check the current date/time and various notifications like unread messages, missed calls and unread emails without actually unlocking the phone first. Moreover, G5 will be running on the Android Marshmallow 6.0. Marshmallow was released last year with numerous new goodies including a completely new app drawer, redesigned app permissions, Doze, and Google Now on Tap.
For Further updates, stay tuned.
