NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Video News Release - On Sunday, February 21, 2016, LG officially announced its new smartphone, the LG G5 and companion devices in Barcelona, Spain - one day prior to the Mobile World Congress. Launching in tandem with their new flagship phone are companion devices, or "LG Friends," that promise to change the way you view your smartphone.

"LG Friends" add to an impressive array of specs, including:

  • Virtual reality goggles
  • Headphones
  • 360 degree angle camera
  • DSLR quality camera attachment
  • Groundbreaking HiFi audio DAC from Bang and Olufsen

In addition, the LG G5 comes equipped with an easily removable, replaceable battery, so you never have worry about recharging on the go.

And get this, there is a rolling bot you can operate remotely which lets you see what's happening at home - it can play, dance and give a laser light show your pets can play with. It even lets you speak to them while you are away - from anywhere in the world.

With this launch, LG kicks off the Mobile World Congress- the world's biggest and most influential mobile event organized by GSMA that runs from February 22-25, 2016. Last year's event drew a record breaking 94,000+ attends from 200 countries.
