A 2800mAh removable battery powers the device with Quick charge 3.0. The evice measures 149.40×73.90×7.70mm and weighs 159 grams. The smartphone is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with its own UI on top.
LG G5 comes to India along with it’s “friends” i.e. its attachments that enhance the capability of the main device LG CAM Plus, LG 360 CAM and LG 360 VR. Each modular attachment of LG G5 comes with its unique identity and functionality. However no prices have been announced for these modules.
