The LG 360 VR are new virtual reality HMD designed to connect with smartphones via the included USB-C jack, rather than housing the phone inside. They have been introduced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to complement LG's newest G5 phone. 
The main features of these VR glasses is their small size and weight. Because they don't have to carry the weight of the smartphone the entire housing is very slim and weighs just 180 grams (6.3 ounces).
Currently, the glasses are limited to just the LG G5, but it's expected that compatibility for additional devices will be added in the future.
The LG 360 VR uses dual 1080p OLED screens with a resolution of 639 ppi. According to LG, these displays should provide a viewing experience similar to a 130-inch TV viewed from two meters. 
A USB-C cable is used to connect power and video, which frees the phone itself to be used as a controller for virtual reality applications and games. The glasses also have additional control buttons on top that are used for confirmations and as a "back" button.
Sound can be outputted through the 3.5mm headphone socket on the underside of the 360 VR headset.
