LG G5 lands in Taiwan as G5 Speed

LG has launched its G5 flagship smartphone in Taiwan. Carrying a model number of LG-H858, the device costs TWD 23,900 in the country, which translates into around $740 at current exchange rates.

While it’s essentially the same version that’s available in most other regions around the world (except that it supports 3 carrier aggregation), the phone doesn’t carry the standard ‘G5’ moniker in Taiwan – it has been launched as the ‘G5 Speed’ instead. The handset is currently exclusive to local carrier Chunghwa Telecom.

This comes just days after the phone landed in India, where it carries an official price tag of INR 52,990 (which is about $790).
