'LG Friends' accessories for new G5 flagship priced from £69 to £199 in the UK

LG unveiled its new G5 flagship handset last month, and a key selling point of the device is its modularity, with a range of add-ons and accessories that can expand its capabilities. UK retailer Clove.co.uk published what it says is LG's official pricing for four of the new accessories designed for the G5.

The Cam Plus is a similar concept to the Camera Grip accessory that Nokia sold for its mighty Lumia 1020 (the one with the 41-megapixel camera). Adding a bit of heft to the G5 to make it easier to hold while taking photos, it includes a dedicated shutter button and zoom controls, along with additional battery capacity, to offset the considerable power drain caused by taking lots of photos.

The Cam Plus will be the most affordable of the G5's Friends, priced at £69 in the UK.

The Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play is a digital-to-audio converter (DAC), which is designed to improve audio playback "when sharing a video with friends or [to] ensure the best quality connection if hooking up to external audio equipment". It includes its own amp and headphone socket, and will cost £149.

Along with the Cam Plus, the Hi-Fi Plus will be available in the UK from April 8.

The LG 360 VR headset will cost £199, and connects to the G5 via a USB-C cable. The headset is designed "primarily to showcase 360 videos", including those shot with LG's new 360 Cam, which features three directional microphones and dual 13-megapixel sensors to help capture scenes from every angle.

The 360 Cam will also be priced at £199 but, like the 360 VR, its release date has not yet been revealed.

And sadly, there's no pricing or availability info yet for the rather fun LG Rolling Bot.
