Till date, LG has introduced two Friends and they are the Cam Plus and the Hi-Fi Plus which comes with B&O Play.
The Cam Plus add-on brings forth a dedicated shutter button to the device. Also included in it is a zoom-dial and a hand grip. The battery on this add-on is larger and more powerful compared to the normal one, the increased potency of the battery will ensure that users are able to indulge in photo sessions for a longer period of time.
