The feature is likely to be named Magic Slot according to Android Authority, and it seems they are pretty confident this feature will be part of the LG G5 when it is released. Chances are this will be announced during MWC 2016 next week, reports also suggest that LG will be revealing two types of expansion modules during MWC 2016.
