LG G5 Now Shipping In United States.






LG G5 Opens up New Possibilities in Mobile With Modular-Type Design

Starting today, LG Electronics' (LG) highly anticipated LG G5 smartphone is available for purchase. The LG G5 can be pre-ordered now online and will be in stores starting tomorrow via major carriers and retailers, including AT&T, Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile Stores, B&H, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon. 

The LG G5 introduces a paradigm-shifting modular design that allows for a collection of companion devices, called "LG Friends," to plug in and transform the LG G5 into a DSLR-style camera, a mobile virtual reality viewer and more.

Unveiled last month in Barcelona at this year's Mobile World Congress, LG G5 is the result of LG's tireless effort towards delivering purposeful innovation for a better life and a more dynamic user experience for its consumers. 
Capturing the attention of MWC media and attendees alike, the LG G5 amassed a total 33 awards including being named the Best New Smartphone at Mobile World Congress from the GSMA's Glomo Awards, the mobile industry's longest established awards platform for innovation, excellence and achievement.

"The LG G5 and LG Friends have captured the imagination of consumers everywhere with its engaging take on mobile technology," said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Modularity has been talked about for years but no one was able to consumerize it until now, and we're happy to take on the mantle."

The LG G5's sleek aluminum body and modular type design allows consumers to easily swap out a depleted battery for a fully charged one in just seconds – a feature that most other high profile smartphones don't offer. To celebrate this smartphone innovation, LG is rewarding customers that order a LG G5 before April 17, 2016 with a free extra battery and battery charging cradle which also acts as a standalone portable charger while on the go.

Starting this week, LG Electronics (LG) will begin reaching global markets with its highly anticipated LG G5 modular smartphone. The LG G5 will debut in South Korea on March 31 and the United States on April 1 to be followed by countries in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, among others. 
Approximately 200 carriers and operators worldwide have committed to offer the G5 in their local markets.
As demonstrated at its unveiling at Mobile World Congress last month in Barcelona, LG G5 is a showcase of cutting-edge technologies and rich features thoughtfully designed deliver a more playful user experience. 
MWC attendees seemed to agree with the philosophy behind the G5 as the device walked away with a record 33 awards including Best New Smartphone at MWC 2016 from the GSMA’s Glomo Awards, the mobile industry’s longest established awards platform for innovation, excellence and achievement.
“Since MWC, LG G5 and Friends have captured the imagination of consumers everywhere with its engaging take on mobile technology,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Modularity has been talked about for years but no one was able to consumerize it until now and we’re happy to take on the mantle.”
Engagement comes in the form of dual 78- and 135-degree camera lenses for ultra wide angle shots, an Always-on Display that requires no button-pressing to get the latest information and Dolby Digital Plus and 7.1 channel audio for cinema-style sound that delivers dialogue and nuanced effects clearly even in loud environments. 
LG G5 also supports IFTTT (If This Then That), a smart solution that allows users to create a series of action programs called recipes to boost productivity and efficiency.
LG simplified the graphical user interface with a simple, flat look while applying a bright color combination and a semi-transparent blur effect to the GUI. In addition, animation and feedback effects are choreographed at the right moments to deliver a playful and enjoyable experience (https://youtu.be/WqJvMtkmyZI).
