Today is one of the biggest days in the mobile calendar as we have not one, but two major flagship events taking place today. Later on, Samsung will take to the stage and unveil their latest flagship offerings in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. However, before that all takes place we have another event to get through, one from another South Korean company who will also be taking to the stage and unveiling their latest smartphone. This is of course, LG and the device to be unveiled is the latest G series smartphone, the LG G5.
This is a phone which has seen massive speculation over the last few weeks with numerous spec rumors developing, images and renders being leaked and a whole load of features being toted by various sources. In fact, when it comes to the LG G5, it does seem that additional features will be a big part of what is on offer today with the rumors suggesting the handset will come with a ‘Magic Slot’ which will allow for additional attachments and accessories to be used with the smartphone. Not to mention, it has already been confirmed by LG over the last few weeks that the LG G5 will come sporting ‘Always On’ functionality, as well as advanced audio capabilities, thanks to a recently announced partnership with Bang & Olufsen. That’s is all before we even start to begin talking about the rumored high-end specs which are likely to come included with the handset.
Either way, today is the day when all the rumors, speculation and otherwise for the LG G5 will finally come to an end. In fact, we don’t have long to wait at all, as LG will be taking to the stage shortly with the event due to officially begin at 2PM CET (local time). For those in the U.S., this is 5AM PST and 8AM EST.
