LG G5 Announced and Full Specs

LG has announced their new flagship device, the G5, with a full metal body but slightly smaller display, smaller battery, volume keys moved to the top left side, and novel magic slot.

A new dual rear camera adorns the back with the super fast finger print sensor similar to the one found on the Nexus 5X but also functions as the power button:
The LG G5 features a 16MP module like the previous G4 and a wide angle 8MP camera module.  A laser focus and LED flash remains with the flagship.

The G5 includes a novel pull out "magic" slot that allows new functionality to be added to the phone or to swap the battery.

Two bottom slots (being called "Friends" by LG) were featured:
A camera control, grip, and battery pack (left) and a hi-fi audio 3.5mm jack (right, the phone will have two 3.5mm audio jacks with this connected).  Only time will tell if the magic slot will be worthwhile.  We all know those expansion slots on those old laptops were very under utilized.

The LG G5 will come in 4 different colors:
Pink,Titan (dark grey), Silver, and Gold will by the launch colors for the G5.  LG has used a novel coating on the metal to allow signals to pass through the body without needing the antenna bands found on HTC and Apple devices.
