LG’s G5 is a big departure from the previous generation
While we’re expecting Samsung’s newest flagships to have roughly the same design as their predecessors, their Korean rival LG is taking quite a different route. Known leaker @evleaks has released new renders of the upcoming flagship the reveals the front and back of the new device, and it seems that the Korean company has completely redesigned their new flagship compared to the G4 and the G3.
Gone is the iconic curved back and rear key setup, replaced by a full metal build and twin cameras at the back as well as a fingerprint scanner.
The G5 is expected to come with a 5.6-inch QHD display with an always-on feature, meaning that the display will show pertinent information like calls, messages and notifications all the time.
One interesting feature that the G5 would allegedly have is a magic slot, which allows the phone to accept hardware upgrades like 360 camera capability, audio amplifier, physical QWERTY keyboard and more. The phone will also have a removable battery unlike the offerings of other devices recently, which should score big points with consumers that want that feature.
