The LG G5 is unveiled and it is the world’s first mainstream modular phone

22 February, 2016 LG



The LG G5 is made out of metal and it has some of the most perfect lines we have seen yet. The only seam on the entire body of the G5 is the one which separates from the bottom. This part is what all the hype is about as the modular component will not only allow for removal of the battery and placement of SIM cards and micro-SD cards, but a whole lot more. It can at this moment support a camera module or a speaker component only, but in time, there will be several others that will enhance the capabilities of the G5 far beyond its initial endowments.


The first of the modules is the LG Cam Plus, which is a camera grip that will add an extra 1,100 mAh battery, a shutter button, a video button, and a dial to zoom in and out. This will make the excellent dual cameras on the back of the G5 even more functional and useful. The speaker unit is a Bang & Olufsen DAC which will allow the LG G5 to provide louder and better sound quality while playing games or consuming media.


The G5 has a camera setup like no other, thanks to its dual camera sensors that's more than just a gimmick. The primary 16 megapixel camera has a 75° field of view while the 8 megapixel secondary camera offers a wider FOV at 135°. The results from both the cameras are merged to create the best possible picture and the user can actually see a real time preview of how things will look after the click while attempting the shoot. We are thoroughly impressed and the crown for the best smartphone camera of the year might already be heading towards the G5's metallic head!


Other specifications of the LG G5 include a 5.3" LCD display with 1440 x 2560 resolution powered by SD 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM and a 2,800 mAh battery. There is support for expandable memory via SD card, along with 32GB of in-built storage. All the regular sensors are there in addition to an ultrafast fingerprint scanner at the back. The G5 with its impressive modular design has already got us excited, but in order to get your hands on it, you will need to wait till April approximately.
