The LG’s smashing flagship for this year, LG G5, was expected to be launched in the United States of America in early April. We received this news about a week ago. Now, we have also come across the announcement that the Canada would be seeing the public revealing on 8th April. LG Electronics announced today that the global sales of the G5 will begin from 31st March.
LG also announced the prices of the two different LG G5 “Friends” accessories. But, the information revealed by the company is in Korean. It means that the actual price of the accessories will be somewhere near the rounded off figure.
Coming to the accessories, one of them is the Cam Plus attachment which adds a camera grip with photo capture & zoom buttons. It is expected to be priced around $85. The other accessory for the audio lovers is the Bang & Olufsen’s Hi-Fi DAC which can turn the LG G6 into a great music player. This will cost nearly $162.
Moreover, an insider source from the Best Buy also unveiled the details associated with the pre-orders of the LG G5 in North America. If the rumor is to be believed then the Smartphone will be up for release on the 18th for Sprint and AT&T, and the 24th for Verizon. On the other hand, the official launch will start from the 1st April.
We also got the info of the pricing. Best Buy’s unlocked price for the device is $799.99. In order to attract more buyers, both LG and Best Buy will be offering a free extra battery, an external battery charger, and a micro-USB to USB Type C adapter. That’s not so much for the whopping price tag. And, by the way, the device is priced the same as the Galaxy S7 Edge and is expensive than the lowest priced version of the S7.
LG G5 is going to face a strong competition. With Samsung’s duo already breaking records and HTC and Apple’s promising devices underway, we smell very tough sales here. What do you think? Are you going to buy the modular LG G5?
