LG has announced a new flagship, dubbed as G5. It will be available in dual-SIM format also. It is the first mainstream modular phone from the company.

The G5 comes with a “fluid metal” body and beveled glass on the front; not even antenna slits spoil its perfect lines. There is a single seam, which separates the bottom part. Its modular component can be removed to access the battery and card slots, and one of several add-ons can be inserted (this requires a reboot).


Back of the LG G5 features a 5.3-inches LCD with an always-on mode. It features a dedicated memory and a power-sipping secondary chip so that the main chipset can go to sleep while the screen remains on 24/7. The bespoke chip sips just 0.8% of battery per hour.

On the rear of LG G5, it has dual camera, one has 75° Field of View (FoV) and 16MP sensor, while the second camera is much wider with 135° Field of View and 8MP sensor. Images from both cameras can be merged with various effects and a real-time preview.

Other than above mentioned features, the LG G5 is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset, that is coupled with 2.2 GHz Quad Core processor and 4GB of RAM. It has 32GB storage on board storage that supports a microSD card (up to 200GB). It’s 7.5mm-8mm thick and is fueled by a 2,800mAh battery. Below the dual-camera setup there is a fingerprint sensor as well. It will be available in early April.
