On Feb. 21, LG will be introducing the heavily rumored G4 successor at the Mobile World Congress 2016 event. Although we already have a good idea of what to expect from the LG G5, this device recently made a visit to the Geekbench site, revealing key configuration details.
Based on the Geekbench listing, the LG G5 prototype comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS on board. Under the hood, this device was apparently carrying a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM.
This particular LG G5 variant, tied to model number LG F700S, belongs to SK Telecom, which is one of the major carriers in South Korea.
Past rumors indicated that the LG G5 will feature the volume buttons on the side, instead of at the back. This handset will apparently carry a 5.6-inch display, bundled with a QHD screen resolution.
When it comes to camera configuration, GSM Arena says a 20-megapixel rear-facing sensor, in addition to an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper will be mounted on the phone. On the contrary, earlier reports suggested that a dual camera setup can be expected from the LG G5. To be specific, the primary camera will reportedly feature a 16-megapixel sensor, while the secondary unit that is part of the dual camera setup will house an 8-megapixel shooter, guaranteeing picture-perfect shots.
Also, unlike the predecessor, this time LG has apparently used a metallic design instead of the traditional plastic chassis. A fingerprint scanner will also be part of the handset and in LG style, the G5 will carry a microSD card slot to facilitate memory expansion. LG phones usually come with USB Type-C port and the upcoming handset will apparently follow suit.
In any case, readers should note that the South Korean tech giant has not confirmed any LG G5 specifications thus far.
