Bang & Olufsen’s Hi-Fi audio module, one of the most exciting “Friends” we’ve seen so far for the new LG G5, may not be available in the U.S.

LG has removed all mentions of the device from its G5 webpage for U.S. visitors, as well as a number of other countries.

Like any high-end smartphone, LG’s new G5 comes with a premium price tag — and it gets even bigger when you add the G5’s “Friends” into the mix. But not if you buy yours from B&H right now.

The retailer is currently offering the LG 360 Cam and 360 VR headset for just $100 when you buy the G5 unlocked and off-contract.

It seems not even Android can save BlackBerry’s falling hardware business.

The Canadian company has confirmed that it sold just 600,000 smartphones during its fourth fiscal quarter, despite the launch of Priv last November. The new handset clearly hasn’t been the savior many fans were hoping for, then — but we’re not surprised.

Samsung’s focus on making its smartphones as secure as can be mean there’s little chance you’ll be able to flash third-party ROMs and tweaks on many handsets in the Galaxy S7 series. That’s not the case for LG’s new G5 handset.

If you buy the device on T-Mobile, it ships with an unlockable bootloader, paving the way for all kinds of user customizations.

Wireless charging is awesome, but in its current form, users must trade faster power for convenience when they use it. Future charging pads won’t have that problem, thanks to LG.

Using the company’s new wireless charging module, users can top up a typical smartphone from zero to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
