LG G5 may feature a secondary display and a “Magic Slot” for hardware compatibility

4 January, 2016 LG

Evan Blass created quite a stir among LG fans when he "revealed" certain details for the upcoming LG flagship. The man behind @evleaks on Tweeter declared that the LG G5 will sport a full metal body to match the premium feel offered by most of its rivals in the industry. According to him, the G5 will also have a secondary display with a resolution of 160×1040. The second panel, hailed as a "ticker" display will function in more or less the same way as it does on the LG V10. If Blass' sources are right, then the ticker display will become a typical LG signature for all its mid to high range smartphones in 2016.

There are other stipulations that were specified in the leak and we will get to them, but what intrigued us most was the"Magic slot." It seems that the LG G5 will feature a certain port that will enable the smartphone to connect with and detect both advanced gadgets like a 360 degree Virtual reality camera as well as basic hardware devices like a keyboard. If you are wondering whether it also has micro SD card expansion capabilities to complement the magic slot, you will have to keep wondering for a while longer as it was not mentioned.

Other leaked specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 3GB RAM and at least 32GB of in-built storage under the hood. On the camera front, the 16 megapixel shooter with laser autofocus and RGB sensor will probably be the same one seen in the LG V10. The G5 will supposedly have a fingerprint scanner on the back rather than being embedded in the Home button. All of this will be powered by a removable 2800mAh battery, which is surprising after considering that the G4 has a 3000mAh battery. Although the slightly smaller 5.3 inch Quad HD display will probably consume less power as well.

Before you start taking these speculations too seriously, take our advice and refrain from believing too much into the "leak." While some of the features mentioned will surely make their way into the final version, the rest may not.
