As LG suddenly starts lurching forward with the release of their latest line of flagship devices that were announced at MWC 2016, like the LG G5 that is now dropping on April 1st, some other hardware is also starting to surface for buyers to place pre-orders. The latest to join the field are the LG 360 VR virtual reality headset and the LG 360 Cam spherical camera device that are now listed on the B&H Photo site.
Unfortunately, B&H Photo does not list an expected availability date for the devices, though we can hope they will match the LG G5 and be available at the end of next week. B&H Photo does provide the list prices for the devices and both of them come in at $ 199. For comparison, the Samsung Gear VR is currently priced at $ 99.
One of the big differences between the LG 360 VR headset and other virtual reality headsets is the method of connecting a smartphone. Most units, like the Gear VR or Cardboard require the phone to be place in the headset itself. LG has gone a different route and uses a cable connection between an LG G5 and the headset. This means the unit is not as big and bulky as other options, but it also means LG had to pack in the electronics for the display instead of using the smartphone’s display.
Meanwhile, like so many other devices hitting the market, the LG 360 Cam is designed to simplify the process of capturing immersive content that can the be delivered via virtual reality headsets.
If you are interested in placing a pre-order for one of the devices you can hit the source links below. Anyone out there planning to invest in LG’s versions of these tech accessories?

Remember that photo of the front and back of the G5 that we saw yesterday? Want another look at the device before its official announcement? You’re in luck.
Evan Blass has released yet another photo of the device, front and back, showing what’s probably the always on display and the rear camera module and fingerprint scanner. It doesn’t reveal anything new, but it does give a great look at the fantastically sleek design that LG is going with for their 2016 flagship. Even if you miss the volume buttons on the rear, it’s hard to argue that this isn’t one of the most attractive designs LG has come up with in recent years.
Fortunately, we aren’t too far out from the actual announcement of the device. There isn’t much left for LG to shock anyone with, but it’ll be nice to get some high quality images and complete clarification on what the G5 can and can’t do.
