All the wackiness could just be clever marketing. But it may also hint to some new display technology, like a switchover to an OLED display. Another rumor indicates the phone will be the most premium handset to date from and borrow many design elements from the V10.

The most unusual hint is that LG built in a “magic slot” into the bottom, which will allow for some type of hardware expansion. It could be for a physical keyboard, a camera, or other accessories. We just don’t know exactly what it will be yet.

Greenbot will be live at Congress in Barcelona, so follow us for all the news when it breaks.

Why this matters: The LG G4 was a great phone with an excellent camera, but it didn’t stand out in the marketplace as much as LG hoped. LG has its sights set on reversing that impression, and the smackdown with hints that the company is confident it has crafted a winner. Get ready for what should be a very interesting day in February.
