LG Introduces G5 Smartphone

The LG family is growing with not only the launch of a new smartphone but a series of products to complement each other.

LG-FriendsThe company has officially launched its G5 phone with a sleek design and metal uni-body featuring a slide-out battery. The phone comes with a 135-degree wide angle lens camera letting users choose between standard or wide angle lens to get more in the shot and the always-on display means there’s no need to wake the phone to see the time, date and more on the 5.3-inch screen.

“The new LG G5 will encourage owners to rediscover the true joy of a mobile life,” Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, stated in a release. “The G5 and LG Friends are the result of many experts inside LG asking themselves if it was still possible to be innovative and unique in the smartphone space. I think once customers spend a little time with the LG G5, their answer will be a resounding yes.”

Those ‘friends’ are a number of new companion devices including a virtual reality goggle, the LG 360 CAM with its two 13MP 200-degree wide angle cameras, a new rolling camera encased in a ball which captures stills and video while moving and, of course, the LG Friends Manager which allows users – through the G5 – to connect with the devices which can all be controlled through the app.

“With the G5, LG is introducing a paradigm-shifting smartphone ecosystem — the LG Playground. With this, LG aims to strengthen the ties with its partners and introduce various devices and supporting programs to fully maximize the LG Playground,” the company stated.
