Just two days before the LG G5 will be officially revealed, we’re getting a clear look at LG’s next Android flagship.
Evan Blass has leaked images of the LG G5 that show both its front and rear. The device looks similar to the G5 that was briefly posted to UAE e-commerce site Dubizzle earlier this week. We can see a body that’s a bit reminiscent of the LG G3, side-mounted volume buttons (a change from LG’s last few flagships), a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, and one of the more notable bits of the G5, its rear cameras.
The LG G5’s rear camera setup is said to include two sensors: a traditional 16-megapixel sensor and a second one that’ll give you 135-degree wide-angle functionality. In-between the two sensors are said to be two flashes, a laser autofocus sensor, and an RGB sensor for added focus and scene recognition.
The other big, new feature of the G5 is expected to be its Magic Slot, which will reportedly let you detach the bottom piece of the G5 and add different modules, like one with hardware camera controls. It’s expected that you’ll also be able to remove the G5’s battery after detaching the bottom piece.
The LG G5 is expected to have an all-metal body, giving it a more premium feel that past LG flagships. The design of the G5 looks fine, offering looks that aren’t really anything special but also aren’t bad. The most interesting aspects of the device will be its rear camera setup and seeing how it performs, as well as the Magic Slot and the types of modules that LG creates.
Now that we’re getting a good, clear look at the G5, what do you think of LG’s next big Android phone?
