South Korea's handset maker LG's first modular smartphone, the G5, will be going on sale in South Korea starting Thursday (March 31).
LG last month had confirmed that it would launch the G5 flagship smartphone in India in the next quarter.
The new premium model -- made using different components that can be independently upgraded or replaced -- comes with a removable battery and accessories such as virtual reality headset and a sound system developed by Danish firm Bang & Olufsen.
LG is banking on its G5 to counter competition from fellow South Korean Samsung, the world`s top handset maker.
