Venture Beat's Evan Blass of @evleaks fame has just released a boatload of information on LG's next flagship phone, the G5.  Continuing in their pattern of upgrading the audio visual specs and features of their G line that goes back to the G2, G3 and current G4 the new G5 reportedly will feature some really cool features that should give it a leg up on the competition. Some of these include the Snapdragon 820 system on a chip, a second 'wide angle' lens on the rear that is next to the main 16MP camera, dual LED flashes in addition to the laser autofocus and RGB center, a secondary display that appears to be similar to the one that is on the company's V10 phone, a slightly smaller form factor featuring a 5.3 inch display instead of the current 5.5 inch, but retaining the same 2k resolution (2560x1440).

Finally perhaps most interesting is the inclusion of an expansion slot that will be branded as the 'Magic Slot'  for some special accessories that could include things such as specialized camera modules with functions for action, 360 VR, “party” and perhaps an audio amplifier or a physical keyboard.  The design is to feature a metal chassis which should give the G5 a more premium look.  This follows the industry trend by Apple, Motorola and Samsung with their flagships to include a more robust metal frame.  All in all it looks like an exciting upgrade to the G4.  We're especially excited about the wide angle lens, the secondary display and any possible software improvements that will be included.
