LG's G5 smartphone should feature super unique accessory slot

LG's next-gen smartphone should feature a user-replaceable battery

LG is expected to show off its next-gen G5 smartphone sometime next month, most likely during Mobile World Congress, and it should have at least one trick up its sleeve when it comes to beating out the Galaxy S7 from Samsung.




According to notorious mobile leaker Evan Blass (or @evleaks), renders of the G5 smartphone show a slot at the bottom of the smartphone which acts like a cartridge receptacle, that would allow for user-replaceable batteries - just like the G4 before it, except this time it'll be much easier to replace your battery.


We should also expect LG to change the position of the volume buttons on the G5, moving them from the back of the phone - where the G4 volume buttons were - to the side of the smartphone, like most handsets on the market. We're also expected to see LG unveil two smartphones this year, with the G5 being the first unveiling at MWC 2016 in Barcelona next month.
