For those of you who bought the LG G5 hoping for a modular world of bliss, but have been disappointed at the lack of availability, know that today may change things a bit. LG announced this morning that the “Friends” line-up for the G5 is now available directly from LG.com in the US.
Instead of having to hunt down a carrier with stock or a retailer, you can buy items like the CAM Plus, 360 VR, and 360 CAM from LG. You’ll also find their new TONE Platinum headsets at the Friends store, but you aren’t going to find the G5’s HiFi DAC anywhere. Remember, LG decided that it wasn’t worth selling in the US, which means you really only have access to one module on your supposedly modular phone, the CAM Plus. The future.
