The LG G5 is finally here and it marks quite a change in direction for LG. In case you missed the hullabaloo of the official unveiling announcement, LG has uploaded its first official video (above) about the G5, detailing many of its little quirks and features.

There’s a look at the replaceable battery and modular nature of the new phone, plus the first two modules: the LG Cam Plus with its extra 1,200mAh battery capacity and the LG Hi-Fi Plus 32-bit DAC that was developed in partnership with Bang & Olufsen. Don’t forget about the LG G5’s Always-on display or the dual-rear camera configuration with wide-angle lens either, that’s in there.

As well as the actual handset, LG unveiled a range of new accessories known as the LG Friends. The video offers a quick look at the 360 Cam, the company’s slim VR headset, and the remote controlled Rolling Bot.

If you are after something a little more in-depth than LG’s video, be sure to check out all of our hands-on action with the new LG G5 as well.
