Report: LG Will Unveil “Major Smartphone” At MWC 2016

January 13, 2016 - Written By John Anon

CES is now done and dusted, however, as is typical with these events, soon after the conclusion of one event, talk normally very quickly turns to the next event on the calendar and that is exactly what has happened this week with the first real talks of MWC starting to surface. In fact, yesterday saw some significant MWC discussions coming through as LG began sending out invites to their press event which has now been confirmed to be taking place on Feb 21 at 2 pm local time.

While the company did send out invites to their event, they did not provide too much in the way of information regarding what they will be unveiling. The invites did however come with a rather teasing “Play Begins” sentiment. Of course, much of the speculation is that LG will unveil the next smartphone to join the popular G series, in the form of the LG G5. However, some have wondered whether they would unveil a different smartphone instead. A follow up to the LG G Flex series could be on the cards, just as could be a new member of the LG V series of smartphones. Well, according to a report which has emerged from Phone Arena this morning, LG will certainly be unveiling a “major smartphone” at the event. Of course, details on what the device is, remains unknown as the report simply details that LG has confirmed that a major smartphone will be coming, without name-dropping any particular smartphone.

For those wondering what will be on offer with the LG G5, some of the rumors that are coming through are suggesting this could be a really interesting device. Before today, the most recent was the suggestion that the G5 could come equipped with some sort of ‘hardware expansion’ along with dual displays. While earlier today, reports began to come through highlighting that the G5 may contain an easy to remove slide out battery. In short, the smartphone could come with a removable lower aspect which would allow for the battery to simply be removed from the bottom. Either way, it won’t be too long before all is known when LG takes to the stage at MWC.
