Samsung Galaxy S7 rumors are abounding right now, but we must not forget other OEMs launching devices next year – LG will soon make announcements regarding LG G5, its G4 follow-up. According to recent reports, the new device will bring some features from G4 and some from LG V10 as well, in the hopes of creating a perfect flagship.

Rumors and ideas

 

LG G5 is rumored to have a full metal body – an improvement from the usual plastic-based devices it has been rolling out so far. The smartphone is said to have a secondary ticker display to go with the primary 5.3-inch display, kinda like the one you can find on the V10. The second display can be used for quick access to some settings, apps and notifications without having to turn your primary display on.

 

LG G5 is rumored to run on the latest form of Android on a Snapdragon 820 plus 3GB of RAM. No news on possible expandable storage or on primary storage options yet.

 

The most curious mention is that of a Magic Slot – feature which allows the device to add more hardware modules. This could be useful with a detachable keyboard, a VR headset or other accessories.

 

We are close to a new LG launch and a new LG flagship. Would you like a G5 dressed in metal? Let us know in the comments below!
