Another image, this time leaked to Android Authority, shows a bulbous attachment with a couple of dials and buttons on the outer edge. It's a blurry photo, but notorious smartphone leaker Evan Blass claims it's a camera accessory called the LG Cam Plus. Along with a comfier grip, the module reportedly adds an extra 1100mAh battery and buttons that can act as a shutter release and other traditional camera controls.

What we know for sure is threefold. Firstly, the device will be revealed on February 21st. Secondly, it'll feature an "always on" display that puts a smattering of information on your lock screen. Finally, there will be an optional Quick Cover that provides a window to the display and some touch-enabled features, such as taking calls and dismissing alarms.
The swappable accessory idea, which seems all but certain now, is a brave idea that should make the G5 stand out from its Android rivals. Whether customers have been clamouring for such a level of hardware customisation is another matter entirely, however.
