LG G5 News, Rumours, Specifications and Release date.
With a confirmed release date of 21st February 2016, there’s not long to wait for LG’s next flagship smartphone, the long awaited LG G5. With features promising to rival the up coming Samsung Galaxy S7 we’re excited to see what’s coming our way.
We’ve put together the latest news and rumours to give you the most up to date over view of how the LG G5 is shaping up.
We are expecting to see a truly premium finish to this flagship Android handset, with a full metal body rather than the usual plastic offerings from LG or a leather backed offering as seen on the LG G4.
As reported by Tech Radar last week, a diagram discovered by Shai Mizrahi of Israeli web portal Walla indicates that the LG G5’s volume keys will be located to the side of the handset rather than on the rear under the camera. The images, shown below, also suggest a size of149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2mm, with the power button will remaining on the back of the handset along with a fingerprint scanner.
Screen size is suggested to be 5.6 inch True HD IPS display with flexible touchscreen, suggesting a Phablet style design if LG fail to size down the bezels. A resolution should be around 3840 x 2160 suggesting a vivd 4K display, perfect for gamers or those who enjoy viewing media on their handset.
Rumours surrounding the cameras featured on the LG G5 are conflicting, with some suggesting a 20 megapixel offering, others a 21 megapixel rear camera with a custom 1/2 inch sensor and case manufacturers indicating a possible dual rear camera set up.
Productivity and Connectivity:
A Snapdragon 820 chip is expected, with Android Marshmallow Os, an IR blaster, microSD-support, USB Type-C slot and 3GB RAM. Whilst images suggest a fingerprint scanner, similar to those seen on the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, we’ve heard the possibility of an iris scanner for added security, making it one of the most secure handsets that LG have released. Rumours also suggest that the removable battery feature will remain.
