LG G5 with a mysterious and bulky Magic Slot module on board leaks out

The first attempt may be ugly, but I think it's a positive direction towards some innovative ways to bring in more add on functionalities to the mobiles.

BTW anyone feeling that the expectation towards LG5 being a gamechanger for LG has taken a hit after the last two ugly pics in leaks?

For me personally, yes, these ugly images have hurt my expectations for now. But that can easily be rectified if the device looks good when it's officially unveiled.

I dont see it ugle.the picture that have been leaked has been blurred intentionaly for some reasone.
42. kent-gaga (Posts: 487; Member since: 10 Apr 2012)
the reason is because the one who took the picture doesn't know how to take a proper photo?

LG G5's designer: I like big butts and I cannot lie.....

Haha and flat b**bs, look at the dual lens.

should rename it to "LG G5 Quasimodo edition".

Is that the cousin of the battery pack/case made by Apple?

Thats LG G5 with a huge tumor in the butt, probably Lipoma

Maybe it's some sort of 'Survival Pack'? And maybe they will release a bunch of different modules to suit different activities...
If you look at the camera bump, it's decreased a lot which means that this is a case with the module on the bottom, which could mean it's a super durable case thingy majiggy, too... Would be pretty cool, certainly makes up (a little) for such an ugly device, but still wouldn't buy one.

Is LG even trying at this point? Yesterday's leaks showing the regular G5 weren't that bad (in my opinion) but this is straight up UGLY!

So many hater for a simple module attached to a device :)

I don't think anyone said the concept was useless. They said they didn't like the way it looked. Which is of course subjective... But that particular module is ugly. Call a spade a spade.

From anyone else I would have thought it was a prototype, they would be crazy to release something that ugly to consumers.

seems like the g5 is very powerful indeed! @$some flagship! ready for combat in fulll battle slot!

I feel very envious of some fans from other companies

this looks like a camera grip. it actually has a dial and a camera shutter button. i can't distinguish the two other buttons though!

It is a camera grip, you can see the cam key and the zoom wheel

and some extra battery pack :D
even better if they put extra microSD slot on it
17. Trakker (Posts: 283; Member since: 11 Feb 2016)
Some kind of modular expansion slot would be interesting but LH like every other major manufacturer wants people to buy a new phone every year so I can't see this doing much.

How can PA say there is no camera in there, if we can't see the entire front nor the complete back?
It might as well have 4 cameras in that module and we still couldn't tell...
22. luisomarf (Posts: 2; Member since: 16 May 2014)
this accesorie its a shotter camera module + battery expansion.
its a removible accesorie.
25. jessyi (Posts: 325; Member since: 08 Jan 2015)
No neednto use the slot!but if needed why dont use it?its an extra functionality to a smartphone which no other has been able to do...
26. Sprissy (Posts: 149; Member since: 11 Feb 2012)
As long as this phone has a replacable battery I will be happy. As far as these pics though, it looks dumb, just my opinion.

That bulk is actually wallet cash to carry .
30. Joseph96 (Posts: 29; Member since: 08 Feb 2016)
I believe. in LG so lg g5 will be better than s7/s7edge
32. Furbal (Posts: 918; Member since: 22 Sep 2012)
I'm going with camera grip. The wheel would be zoom, bottom edge may be a microphone plug for a boom?
33. KyleRiemen (Posts: 116; Member since: 29 Oct 2014)
I think i see a volume-wheel. Maybe a headphone Amplifier + Battery Extension Pack.
34. molokante (Posts: 3; Member since: 17 Feb 2016)
My guess is a DAC/amp. Good idea in my opinion. Doesn't look great, but external DAC/amps are usually a lot bulkier.
44. belovedson (Posts: 976; Member since: 30 Nov 2010)
thats my guess too....definitely reminds me of fiio x7
35. hortizano (Posts: 286; Member since: 22 May 2013)
Blurry? So DON'T use an iPhone to photograph leaks...!!
37. cnour (Posts: 563; Member since: 11 Sep 2014)
Bad imitation for the last Apple battery case.

Was this pic taken with a throwaway camera from the 90's?

Perhaps it's some NFC-powered Camera Grip? That's very possible for an Android device given that we already have the ability to add buttons to our phones via NFC:
