If you need a refresher, the G5 is one of the few fully modular smartphones in the world that’s currently being offered for sale. The new device sports a full metal body, a 5.3-inch QHD display and a speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, along with 4GB of RAM.
The phone has a removable bottom that allows users to plug in accessories or “friends” into the device. Stuff like a camera grip that gives users physical camera controls, high-end audio via Bang and Olufsen and even simple stuff like a spare battery.
The G5 also features a twin camera setup on the rear – one 16-megapixel rear camera with a 75 degree FOV and a secondary 8-megapixel rear camera with a 85 degree FOV.
LG’s pricing the G5 at Php 34,990 when it hits stores. No word on the availability of the other modules or the G5’s friends as of yet.
