LG G5 unveiling
The announcement was made on LG Mobile‘s official Facebook page. In a GIF, LG tells us to “Come meet new friends on the playground” at the Sant Jordi Club in Barcelona, Spain on the 21st of February. It adds that its event at MWC 2016 will be a “LG G5 day.” So it’s pretty clear what we’ll be seeing at LG’s press event.
Here’s the GIF:
According to past reports, the LG G5 will feature a 5.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). In the photography department, the device is said to feature a dual camera setup, consisting of a 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. This new rear-facing camera setup is said to allow users to change the field of focus after an image is captured. This camera also comes with 4K video recording support and optical image stabilisation. As for the LG G5’s front-facing camera, the device is said to feature an 8-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video chat. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is a new and more powerful quad-core processor with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. It is said to feature a reversible Type-C USB port. Lastly, it is expected to be 8.2 mm-thick, which is slightly thinner than the LG G4. Unlike the leather- or plastic-clad LG G4, the LG G5 is said to be clad in metal. Being clad in metal usually means that the device will feature a non-removable battery, but leaked renders suggest that LG will employ a drawer-like mechanism that gives users access to the battery.
