New Delhi, June 1 :LG Electronics India Ltd on Wednesday launched its flagship modular G5 smartphone at Rs 52,990 which features a “slide-out” battery and dual rear cameras — the only flagship device to feature dual primary cameras which work independently.
The “slide-out” battery design allows you to easily swap out a discharged battery for a fully charged one in seconds.
“With G5, we have come up with a very unique concept of a modular smartphone. This phone will amaze the users with its ability to be transformed into multiple devices like digital camera, Hi-Fi player and more. G5 will certainly redefine smartphone experience for consumers,” Kim Ki Wan, Managing Director, LG Electronics India, told reporters here.
The device is accompanied with “LG Friends”, a collection of devices like LG CAM Plus, LG 360 CAM and LG 360 VR.
LG G5 sports a 5.3-inch Quad HD display (2560 x 1440 pixels) featuring always-on display technology that allows users to check time, date continuously even when G5 is in sleep mode.
It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of in-built storage that can be expanded by up to 2TB via microSD card.
The smartphone is equipped with aptX HD, an enhanced codec that supports 24-bit sound over Bluetooth, delivering clear sound over wireless connections without any loss.
LG G5 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, and is powered by a 2800mAh removable battery and weighs 159 grams.
For connectivity, the device offers LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.
Launched first in the Mobile World Congress in Spain earlier this year, LG G5 is also the first flagship device from the Korean firm to feature a metal unibody design.
