Are you a fan of LG smartphones? If so, we’ve got information on what LG is allegedly planning for its 2016 lineup.
LG’s alleged plans for 2016
The news comes to us courtesy of Korean-speaking Daum. Back at CES 2015, which kicked off in January of this year, LG lifted the lid on the LG G Flex 2, the South Korean phone maker’s flexible high-end smartphone. If you were looking forward to getting to see the LG G Flex 3 at CES 2016, which kicks off a few weeks from now, don’t get your hopes up, if the report is to be believed. It claims that LG is not planning to introduce a new G Flex at the trade show. The report doesn’t mention if the venue or date has been changed, or if LG has decided to discontinue the G Flex. Here’s hoping that the date and venue has been changed, instead of killing off the LG G Flex 3.
The site’s sources also have information to share about the LG G5 – LG’s next flagship. They claim that LG is planning to lift the lid on its next flagship in late April of 2016. This makes sense, since the LG G4 made its official debut on the 28th of April of this year.
As for what to expect with the LG G5, past reports have claimed that the smartphone will feature a 5.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), which is slightly bigger than the 5.5-inch screen of the LG G4. Under the hood is said to be the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, which has allegedly done well in various benchmark tests. Its camera combo is said to consist of a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat.
Lastly, the report claims that LG is planning to introduce a follow-up to the LG V10 (LG’s dual-screened smartphone) in the second half of 2016.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt.
