LG Announces Modular Android Phone, VR Headset

LG today at Mobile World Congress 2016 took the wraps off its flagship mobile products for the coming year. Chief among them is a the G5 smartphone, a handsome device that feels fantastic in the hand and sports an expansion-type system that can utilize accessory packs. It’s fun.
The company also announced a lightweight VR headset and a 360 VR camera because VR is all the rage at MWC 2016.
However, LG is not talking pricing at this point. The company says the products will ship in the coming months.

5.3-inch screen Quad HD IPS display (2560 x 1440 / 554ppi)
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Processor
microSD Card Slot
Always-on Display
Camera: Rear: Standard 16MP, Wide 8MP / Front: 8MP
135 degree wide-angle lens
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The G5 is the company’s latest flagship device. Like previous models, the G5 has a swappable battery but changing the battery in this model will hurt a bit less. The G5 has a small button on the side that when pressed, pops off the bottom of the phone and with it, the battery. Previous models required the owner to remove the entire back of the phone. It wasn’t pretty on fingernails.
LG designed this feature to host accessory packs. At launch G5 owners can buy a camera pack called the LG Cam Plus that adds an additional battery and physical controls for the G5’s camera like a dial for zooming and a shutter button. This pack combines with the phone’s standard battery, providing 4,000 mAh of power.
The second pack is an improved speaker and a headphone amp designed in part by Denmark’s B&O. This pack adds an additional headphone jack to the phone. When used, it serves up audio to the connected headphones by way of a 32bit DAC. The phone itself employs a 24bit DAC.
