LG G5 Smartphone
LG Electronics’ (LG) LG G5 smartphone is now available for purchase. It can be pre-ordered online and will be in stores starting today via major carriers and retailers, including AT&T, Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile Stores, B&H, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon.
The LG G5 introduces a modular design that allows for a collection of companion devices, called “LG Friends,” to plug in and transform the LG G5 into a DSLR-style camera, a mobile virtual reality viewer, and more.
“The LG G5 and LG Friends have captured the imagination of consumers everywhere with its engaging take on mobile technology,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Modularity has been talked about for years but no one was able to consumerize it until now, and we’re happy to take on the mantle.”

The LG G5’s aluminum body and modular type design allows consumers to easily swap out a depleted battery for a fully charged one in just seconds – a feature that most other smartphones don’t offer, claims LG.
To celebrate this smartphone, LG is rewarding customers that order a LG G5 before April 17, 2016 with a free extra battery and battery charging cradle which also acts as a standalone portable charger while on the go.
