LG has just announced the Australian price and release date of its new flagship G5 smartphone. Here’s how much you’ll pay, and when you can get one.
The G5 goes on sale in early May, through both Optus and Telstra, as well as outright through LG’s retail launch partner Harvey Norman.
At a RRP of $1099, the G5 is on par with other high-end 2016 phone launches from Samsung and HTC.
Optus has the G5 on sale from May 2, while Telstra is one day later on May 3. Outright, you’ll be able to get it from Harvey Norman on the 2nd as well.
Here’s an interesting tidbit, too, that increases the appeal of the G5: LG will replace the screen for free if it’s broken, too, once within the first six months of ownership.
LG is going to sell both the announced-at-MWC ‘Friends’ modules for the G5, too. The Cam Plus module, which has a 1200mAh battery bump and dedicated camera controls, will be $129. The B&O Play Hi-Fi 24-bit audio module will be $229. Both will be out in May.
Standalone LG friends, too, will be sold alongside the G5. The LG 360 Cam will be $399 and available in May, while the Rolling Bot will be out in June for the same price.
