LG: We’ll Launch Two New Flagship Models This Year

January 26, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

As you’ve probably already noticed, LG has released their financial results for last year. The company has managed to sell 59.7 million smartphones, 0.6 million more than last year. LG’s revenues, as a whole, are down in 2015 though, and the company is looking for a way to change things around this year. We’ve already seen a number of LG G5 rumors, some of which even say that LG might introduce their new flagship during the Mobiel World Congress next month.

That being said, LG has released a rather interesting info along with the company’s financial info. This Korea-based tech giant has said that they’ll launch ‘two new flagship models’ this year, which more or less confirms that both the G5, and V10’s successor are coming. There’s a chance, of course, that LG won’t announce the second-gen LG V10, or that they plan to call it differently, but as the things look like at the moment, these are the two devices the company is talking about.

Now, judging by the rumors and leaks we’ve seen thus far, LG G5 will be significantly different than its predecessor. Based on the leaks, the phone won’t sport rear-facing physical buttons any longer, which seems like an odd move by LG, but the leaks could be fake, of course. You can expect the G5 to be made out of metal, and its display will be somewhere between 5.5 and 5.7-inches. It is possible that some benchmark info might surface in the coming days / weeks, so stay tuned for that, we’ll get far more spec info if that happens. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will almost certainly come pre-installed on the G5, and LG’s UX UI will be available on top of Google’s OS, as always. The 16-megapixel shooter has been mentioned once again, though it will surely going to be improved compared to the 16-megapixel snapper we’ve seen in the G4. Take all this spec info with a grain of salt, none of these specs are confirmed at this point.

That is pretty much it. LG will introduce the G5 either during MWC, or in March / April. We’ll make sure to let you know if any additional rumors / leaks surface, so stay tuned for that. As far as LG V10’s successor goes, it’s far too early to talk about that considering the fact that it will probably launch in Q4 this year.
