It seems like everyone wants to grab a slice of the virtual reality action, and LG is not one to get left behind. One of the accessories (or "friends," as LG calls them) that are pairable with the new G5 is the LG 360 VR — LG's own take on a VR headset.

The LG G5 is the dark horse to Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 edge here at MWC, no doubt.

A user there has posted a picture of the battery and what appears to be the cap from the bottom of the phone. This might be part of LG's rumored "Magic Slot" system.
