Rumor: LG G5 To Feature Dual Displays, Dual Cameras, and a Magic Slot
Rumors surrounding LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG G5, have been making rounds for the past few months. Recently, a new report has surfaced online which suggests that the metal clad handset will borrow some design elements from its predecessors as well as the current flagship, the V10. In addition, several new features are on board as well.
Specs-wise, the G5 sports a 5.3-inch Quad-HD display, along with a secondary “ticker” display – first seen on the 5.7-inch V10 – that shows the time, notifications, favorite apps and functions. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, coupled by 3GB of RAM and 32Gb of internal storage.
Further, the G5 is said to have a dual-lens setup on the rear, that gives the main 16MP camera a 135-degree wide-angle capability. If that’s not enough, the rear of the phone is equipped two LED flash bulbs, a laser autofocus module and an RGB sensor.
Driven by a 2,800mAh removable battery, the G5 also features a fingerprint sensor that sits just beneath the camera components.
Last but not the least, LG is rumored to have fitted its upcoming flagship with what’s being branded as the “Magic Slot.” The expansion slot allows user to add extra functionality to the handset by the way of hardware modules which could include cameras, audio amplifier, physical keyboard and others.
Neither price nor release date are official as of yet, though the generic launch timing for LG G5 is first quarter of this year.
