New Delhi, June 1 (IANS) LG Electronics India Ltd on Wednesday launched its flagship modular G5 smartphone featuring a “slide-out” battery and dual rear cameras — the only flagship device to feature dual primary cameras which work independently.
The primary camera is a 16MP one while there is a second 8MP camera for wide-angle shots. LG has tuned its software for both the rear cameras to work independently.
For selfie-lovers, it houses a 8MP front camera.
The Rs.52,990 device is accompanied with “LG Friends”, a collection of devices like LG CAM Plus, LG 360 CAM and LG 360 VR.
LG G5 sports a 5.3-inch Quad HD display (2560 x 1440 pixels) featuring always-on display technology that allows users to check time, date continuously even when G5 is in sleep mode.
It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of in-built storage that can be expanded by up to 2TB via microSD card.
LG G5 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, and is powered by a 2800mAh removable battery and weighs 159 grams.
For connectivity, the device offers LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.
Launched first in the Mobile World Congress in Spain earlier this year, LG G5 is also the first flagship device from the Korean firm to feature a metal unibody design.
