LG has been announcing phones left and right this year. The company has introduced a number of smartphones from the company’s ‘K’ and ‘X’ series. The LG K4, K7, K8 and K10 were announced thus far, and so were the X cam and X screen handsets, not to mention LG has also introduced the Stylus 2. Now, the company did introduce the majority of this phones quite recently, with the exception of K4, K7 and K10 which were announced during CES last month. Either way, all of these phones will be showcased during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona which kicks off soon, but the main LG-branded smartphone to pay attention to during the show is the LG G5, the company’s upcoming flagship.
This handset has been leaking out for quite some time now, we’ve seen various rumors and leaks when it comes to this phone, and a new piece of info just popped up. We did get to see a leaked back of the LG G5 a few times now, but now we get to see the whole package basically. These images come from an e-commerce website in Dubai (allegedly imported from the U.S.), which is quite interesting. The phone is allegedly listed for sale in Dubai, and costs 2,500 dirhams ($680). If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll notice a couple of LG G5 real life images, which not only show us the back of the device, but its front side as well. The phone does resemble the G3 and G4 from the front, as far as general shape goes, though its corners are way more rounded than they were before. LG’s logo is still played below the display, and the phone looks quite sleek from the front. Now, looking at it from the back, we get to see the duo camera setup, the LED flash, Laser Autofocus, and the fingerprint scanner / physical home button. You may notice there are no volume rocker keys on the back, that’s because they’re placed on the left-hand side of the phone, which is also visible in these images. The LG G5 is made out of metal, as you can see, and judging by what we’ve seen thus far, the back will be removable in some way. Either way, we’ll find out soon, LG plans to announce this handset on February 21st, on the same day Samsung will introduce its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagship smartphones.
What about the phone’s specs? Well, rumors say that the device will ship with a 5.3-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 4GB of RAM, and that it will be fueled by the Snapdragon 820 SoC. The 2,800mAh battery has also been mentioned, and so was the 16-megapixel camera, but considering we expect two cameras on the back, we’ll see what LG opted for. The 2,800mAh battery will, allegedly, going to be included on the inside, and you can expect Android 6.0 Marshmallow to come pre-installed here with LG’s custom UI on top of it. The LG G5 will also sport the always on display, which LG confirmed with their latest teaser.
