TORONTO, April 7, 2016 /CNW/ - The multi award winning LG G5, LG's first modular smartphone, is set to be transformed by G5 Friends companion devices, available on April 8, 2016. The Friends transform the smartphone into a range of innovative devices. The LG 360 Cam seamlessly captures full 360 images and video; the LG Cam Plus is a plug in camera grip that offers the feel and function of a real camera; and the LG 360 VR delivers an interactive and immersive display experience of 360 degree virtual reality in a portable lightweight headset design.
"In life and in smartphones – Friends are everything," says Eunice Lee, Brand Manager Mobile Communications at LG Canada. "The LG G5 is a direct response to consumers' smartphone priorities. The vast majority of Canadians use their mobile device as their primary camera – we kept this in mind when designing our newest flagship and are offering a flexible experience with the Friends."
The LG 360 Cam: The Friend that gives you the whole picture
The LG 360 Cam is a compact, spherical camera that captures life's most invigorating experiences from the user's perspective in the center of the action. With a quick connection of this device to the LG G5, it is now possible to take stunning photos and pristine 2K videos of entire surroundings – not just specific scenes, but entire environments thanks to the dual wide-angle 13MP lenses that capture 360 degrees of the action. The LG 360 Cam is now available at Bell.
The LG Cam Plus: The Friend that gives you a real camera-like feel
Now you can plug in a camera grip to transform the LG G5 into a device that has the feel and function of a real camera. It's the most comfortable and easiest way to capture life's moments using a smartphone. A shutter button, zoom dial and a hand grip lets users take great one handed photos on the fly. It also offers more time for more shots thanks to an embedded 1,200 mAh battery. The LG Cam Plus is now available at Bell, Videotron and WIND Mobile.
The LG 360 VR: The Friend that enhances your world
Virtual Reality has never been so portable. The LG 360 VR plunges the user into the world of 360 degree videos and 3D games in a super light and compact format. It is easily controlled by either the LG G5 smartphone or onboard buttons. The headset offers crystal clear images and allows users to view content as if watching a 130" display from 2 meters away.
