It’s all but natural that the yesteryear flagship gets discounted once its successor shows up. And that’s what is happening with the LG G5. As we wait for the LG G6 to land, the 2016 flagship smartphone from the Korean brand is available for just Rs 24,990 on India’s leading e-commerce portal, Flipkart, with additional offers on SBI/Axis bank credit cards, taking the price down to Rs 23,490.
The LG G5 was retailing at around Rs 33,000 till recently, but Flipkart is discounting it further now. Although the modular concept didn’t really take off (and went missing in the latest LG G6), at Rs 25k, the smartphone is a super attractive buy for anyone looking for a good mid-range phone with great camera and replaceable battery.
The phone was launched at Rs 52,990 back in June 2016. With Samsung nearly nailing it with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the LG G5 never really managed to click much, despite having a competing camera with dual lenses. Being modular, the smartphone shipped with an additional battery with options to separately purchase accessories like Cam Plus dock, Hi-Fi Plus, 360 cam and VR headset.
