LG G5 expected to include secondary ticker display, metal chassis and magic slot

LG G5 will reportedly feature a 5.3-inch IPS Quad HD screen (1440 x 2560) with a pixel density of 525 ppi in addition to a secondary ticker display. Moreover, the device will be manufactured using metal chassis.

The upcoming LG G5 will most likely sport a new Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be expandable up to 200GB.

The display will be supported by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 in addition to LG Optimus UX 5.0 UI on the top of Android Marshmallow. The smartphone is expected to be bundled with 20MP primary camera with dual lenses on the rear side which provides support for 135 degrees wide angle.

There are reports that in between the lenses, a circle will be presented with a quartet of elements in a square configuration with LED and laser flash bulbs.

LG G5 is expected to include 8MP front facing the camera and a fingerprint sensor on the back side. As we reported in previous news stories, fingerprint sensor will be a reality in all devices in 2016.

The new device from LG will be equipped with a 2800mAh battery. However, there is no official confirmation regarding the inclusion of a removable battery or a microSD card slot.

If the reports are to be believed, LG G5 will be equipped with a Magic Slot using that you can connect hardware devices such as VR headset, external keyboard or audio amplifier. However, we are not sure as to what purpose does this slot serve since users will not make use of a keyboard for a 5.2-inch device.

LG G5 is expected to offer fast battery charging capability via Quick Charge 3.0 and will also include an ability to charge the device wirelessly. LG will modify the specifications mentioned above before the final release as we saw in the past.

LG G5 is expected to be available by the end of first quarter of 2016 in various colours. We don’t have information the range of colours although we believe that the device will be made available in blue, black and red variants.

We also expect that the new LG G5 ships with 4GB or 6GB of RAM instead of 3GB RAM as reported in the leaks.
