LG G5 goes official with modular design

LG has finally officially announced the G5 flagship smartphone at MWC 2016. The main feature is modularity. 

LG G5 is official with very anticipated specs. 5.3″ Quad HD display is always-on and there are two cameras on the back. Snapdragon 820 powers the thing with 4GB of RAM as expected and the battery is rated at 2800mAh.

But seriously, those specs are nothing as the LG G5 is the first modular smartphone. The bottom part of the all aluminium unibody slides off revealing the replaceable battery and allowing modular parts to be attached. At launch there are at least a camera control module and a higher quality audio module available. It’s interesting to see how the modularity inspires accessory manufacturers to bring their own add-ons to the G5.

All the good things of the G4 are still here. The SIM-tray also accepts a microSD card and as said the battery is replaceable, although a bit small in capacity. The design is a major step in right direction as the metal body has gentle curves all around. The micro USB port has changed to a type-C port which supports Quick Charge 3.0.

The camera is a major feature of the phone. There are two sensors on the back, one with usual 78-degree lens and one with impressive 135-degree lens, more than human eye can see. On the back, there is also a dual led flash, laser autofocus and a fingerprint scanner.

Unfortunately LG has done very little to improve their user interface. For example the outdated colors are back and for some reason LG has even opted to remove the app drawer.
