The LG G5 has been leaking like crazy lately. LG’s newest flagship will be announced on February 21st, alongside Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagship smartphones. We’ve seen a number of images showcasing G5’s back side, and earlier today the whole package leaked. The real life image that leaked actually goes hand-in-hand to basically every rumors we’ve seen in the last couple of weeks. Speaking of which, new info popped up, read on.
This new piece of info comes from @evleaks aka Evan Blass, tipster we’ve talked about quite a few times thus far. Anyhow, according to his latest tweets, he saw the LG G5, and it will ship with a secondary display, hence the ‘always-on’ teaser LG shared recently. That’s not the only piece of info @evleaks released though, he also said that the G5’s camera is identical to the one on the recently announced X cam handset. This actually explains why LG didn’t show us the back side of the X cam yesterday when they announced this handset, alongside the X screen. Now, many sites are guessing that the secondary display on the LG G5 might be similar to the one on the V10, which is quite possible, though LG did show us something different in the .gif teaser they released recently. Is it possible that LG G5 will sport a different type of an always-on display? Like the ‘Glance’ function we’ve seen included in some Windows-powered handsets, like the Lumia 950 XL for example. Well, anything is possible at the moment, we’ll just have to wait and see what LG has to offer, but chances are it will be similar to the V10’s and X screen’s offering.
The LG G5 is rumored to sport a 5.3-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 4GB of RAM and a 2,800mAh battery. The phone will, allegedly, going to be made out of metal, and will ship with a dual cam setup on the back. The LG G5 will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, and on top of it, you’ll find LG’s custom UI, as per usual. That’s pretty much it, the phone will be announced on February 21st, and chances are we’ll see more leaks before then, stay tuned.
