If one of the reasons you bought the LG G5 was for its modular accessories LG calls “Friends,” it’s now a lot easier to buy them in the United States.

If you live in the U.S., you can now purchase any of the three LG G5 “Friends” accessories. These include the LG CAM Plus, for taking better pictures with a snap. The LG 360 CAM, which can be paired with your G5 to display pictures and videos taken in a full 360 degrees. To watch the content you create in VR, you’ll need LG’s 360 VR headset, which is also now up for purchase on LG.com. It’s lightweight, portable, and best of all, doesn’t require that you first place your smartphone inside. Unfortunately, the Hi-Fi Plus module many of you were looking forward to is not making the cut here.

LG has also listed its new TONE PLATINUM wireless stereo headsets. These come in a variety of colors including Black, Silver and Gold. All will work seamlessly with your LG G5 smartphone according to LG. Pricing for the headset is $199. As for the LG G5’s “Friends,” the CAM Plus will run you $69, and each, the 360 CAM and 360 VR cost $199 a piece, a bit steep if you ask me.
