This year the South-Korean company LG arrived at Mobile World Congress with an amazing phone, handset called LG G5 that changed everything in terms of design while compared to the last two flagships. If on the LG G4 we had a leather backcover, this year the company decided to take a different approach, and thereby we got a uni-body metallic phone this time.
Starting today, LG G5 is available in South Korea for a $730 price tag. According to the producer, this flagship will soon arrive in Europe, US and China through more than 200 mobile operators. We expect to see some promotions here, like a free battery when buying the CamPlus module, or a special discount maybe.
In terms of hardware, LG G5 is pretty similar to other actual flagship phones like 4 GB RAM memory and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. We get a dual-camera on the back with a 16-megapixel main sensor and a secondary 8-megapixel sensor with wide lens. There’s a 5.3-inch Quad HD display with Always-On technology and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
This phone also packs 32 GB of storage + microSD card slot, and a 2800 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology that promises to charge the phone from 0 to 83% in just 30 minutes. LG G5 also offers the possibility to use some dedicated modules like a photo grip with dedicated functions, or the Bang & Olufsen audio module for a great music experience.
