LG G5 Unveiled: Snapdragon 820, Dual Cameras, Modular Add-Ons

LG has officially unveiled their latest phone at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. The most unique feature of the phone definitely seems to be the slot at the bottom, which will accept the standard battery holder, or specialized modules like the camera or audio add-on.

It's a drastic departure from previous LG flagships, with a metal-backed design, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and the move to a more traditional volume key placement, eschewing the firm's traditional back-mounted buttons. What's more, the G5 introduces new modular attachments bringing more functionality to the device, with the lower portion of the phone being detachable.
