LG’s Next Phone Rumoured to Feature Expansion Slots

Evan Blass, VentureBeat:

As we reported last month, the G5 features a so-called Magic Slot at the bottom of the device; CNET Korea later provided a graphic elucidating the concept (pictured above), which also allows the battery to be swapped out. Initially, LG is only allegedly planning to show off two modules compatible with the slot: a battery grip for photography and digital audio chip (DAC) for improved sound quality.

Remember the days of expansion slots and bays on computers? Remember device drivers? Remember managing device drivers? Should be fun.
