LG is known to be innovators so it wasn’t a complete surprise when they launched their latest flagship phone which has an extremely interesting feature : Modular Units
What exactly are Modular Units?
They are physical components which get added to your phone to enhance your experience.
LG is launching two modules initially.
One can remove and add as they wish, depending upon the users need.
The first one is to enhance photography, while also increasing battery life, called the LG Cam Plus which adds physical camera controls and makes it easier to take pictures one-handedly.
The second module is aimed at audio lovers, with Bang & Olufsen partnering up with LG for the LG HI-FI Plus. The added module looks very sleek, like a natural extension of the phone itself.
LG has confirmed that they will open up its hardware to anyone who wishes to create a module for the G5, so more modules can be expected in the near future.
The innovative features do not stop at the modules however, with a dual-back camera also a big plus for the phone.
The second camera is a 135 degree wide-angle, for those wanting to take nature shots.
The 2800 mAH baterry can be changed at any time, for a different one.
There are a few devices that are designed to accompany the G5 as well as LG ensures no punches are pulled.
