The LG G5 is LG’s newest flagship, this device was introduced back in February during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), and is currently available in quite a few markets. LG heavily redesigned their flagship this time around, and unlike its predecessors, the LG G5 is a semi-modular phone which has a couple of tricks up its sleeve. The company has confirmed that the G5 will be announced in India on May 20th, and today’s the day.
As promised, LG has introduced their new flagship in the country, and as part of the announcement, they have said that the phone will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow.

Now, if you live in India, and you opt to pre-order this device, you’ll also get the LG CAM Plus free of charge. The LG CAM Plus is LG G5's accessory which basically lets you turn the LG G5 in a camera, well, in a way.

The LG G5 will be available in Silver, Titan, Gold and Pink color options, though LG did not say how much will the phone cost just yet. The device is likely to go on sale in the first week of June, at least according to recent reports.
