The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were launched on October 4th during an event in San Francisco and ever since, the mobile world has gone mad for the Nexus competitors.
Unfortuantly, this massively high demand has caused an unavoidable global shortage, resulting in a short delay for Pre-order shipments. The expected dispatch of pre-orders has been pushed back slightly and will be sent out as soon as possible.
N.B. if you have already pre-ordered the device you will be on priority shipment.
To ensure your order is shipped within the first batch, please pre-order the Google Pixel and Pixel XL today – available with UK and International shipping.

The LG G5 launched earlier this year with removable modules / LG Friends that snap into the bottom of the handset, adding functionality and features to the device. The LG Friends line included the LG Cam Plus,Bang and Olufsen Hi-Fi plus and additional battery capacities.
It is widely understood that LG Electronics are currently selecting its partners for the G5 successor, the G6, in preparation for a spring 2017 release.

LG Electronics is not going to apply modularized structure for its next strategic Smartphone called ‘G6 (tentative)’ that is expected to be released in 2017. It is basically withdrawing its strategy of modularization that was first introduced to G5 in just a year.
