The MWC 2016 is nearing close and many flagship devices will be unveiled days before, after and during the event. LG’s ambitious G5 has also been earmarked for launch. Meanwhile, a new report says, the LG flagship will feature a brand new design.
LG is apparently prepping to give tough competition to Samsung this year. Not to forget, Samsung also has its Galaxy S7 flagship lined up for release.
According to Android Authority citing a Hebrew portal, this time around, the LG G5 will come with significant design changes like never-before. Unlike the plastic chassis clad LG G4, the successor will flaunt a full metal body. This is clearly portrayed in the sketch attached above showing the cut-outs.
To top it off, the volume buttons have been moved to the side of the device. However, the power button is positioned at the back, beneath the camera unit. A single speaker can also been seen at the tail-end of the handset and the regular 3.5 mm headphone jack is at the top.
Similar to other flagships, LG has apparently housed a built-in fingerprint scanner on the phone. Speaking of size, the LG G5 will reportedly come with the following dimension: 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2 mm. This means, the handset will be relatively taller and narrower when compared to the G4.
Other rumored LG G5 specifications include a 5.6-inch display and QHD screen resolution. Latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor will apparently power the device.
When it comes to camera configuration, rumors have been split between a dual-camera setup and a regular sensor. GSM Arena says LG is believed to boost the camera by housing a killer 20-megapixel rear-facing shooter, in addition to an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies. Also, recently, HTTP user agent profile confirmed that, the LG G5 has been associated with the model number “LG-H830.”
