When LG unveiled its newest flagship device, the LG G5, at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain in February early this year, the smartphone wowed the world with its cool, modular approach to mobile design. Basically, the LG G5’s flexible, modular design allows mobile users to swap out components and even upgrade parts by taking the battery out of the bottom and attaching a new accessory. The LG G5’s accessories have now been dubbed as “Friends” and the South Korean tech giant has taken the opportunity to announce that four of these accessories are now made available at select retail outlets, US wireless carrier stores, and the LG online store.
First off is the LG Cam Plus, which basically serves as a camera grip to allow owners of the LG G5 to get a better grip on their handset when they capture images. It comes with a toggle switch to launch the camera, as well as a digital zoom control, a physical shutter button, and a video recording button. The LG Cam Plus is available from all carriers, in stores and online for a price of $69.99.
Next is the LG 360 Cam, which comes with a couple of lenses at the top. Each of these two lenses provides an angle of view of 200 degrees, which should delight mobile users who want all the coverage they can get in order to try and stitch together pictures for one spherical image. Below the lens is a shutter release, which should allow people to quickly take a 360 degree selfie shot, or shoot a 2K resolution video. The LG 360 Cam has the ability to send media to the user’s Android handset by way of Bluetooth technology or users can connect the accessory to an LG G5 smartphone and make full use of the mobile app as a viewfinder to browse their shots. The LG 360 Cam is available in stores and online for a price of $199.99.
For those into virtual reality and all that stuff, they may want to check out the LG 360 VR. The LG 360 VR uses the processing prowess of the LG G5 to bring virtual experiences into life (well, almost). This headset plugs into the G5 by way of a USB C cable -- instead of having the handset placed directly into the LG 360 VR, with the phone’s display screen serving as the virtual reality portal. Like the LG 360 Cam, the LG 360 VR is available in stores and online for a price of $199.99.
Lastly, the LG Tone Platinum HBS-1100 headphones promise even cleaner music, across a diverse range of sound frequencies. This is available in gold, silver, and black colors, in stores and online for a price of $199.99.
