LG G5‘s launch during this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona was one of the main attractions for the participants. This Korea-based company has opted to release quite a different device this year, a device that doesn’t really resemble its predecessors all that much. The LG G5 is a bold new approach to a smartphone, but we’ll see if that was the right option for the company. This is a modular handset, per se, and it does offer quite a lot in terms of expansion modules, and features on the device.
That being said, a number of carriers have already confirmed that they’ll carry the LG G5, though we haven’t heard anything regarding India thus far. Well, those of you who live in that Asian country will be happy to know that the LG G5 will be arriving to India, but you’ll have to wait until Q2 this year in order for it to happen. LG has officially confirmed this news (according to Fonearena), though they did not share any further specifics as to when exactly will it launch, nor how much will the device cost, we’ll just have to wait and see.
The LG G5 features a 5.3-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display which features ‘Always-On’ functionality. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU. The phone ships with 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable internal storage on the inside. The 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras are placed on the back of the device, and an 8-megapixel snapper can be found up front. The 2,800mAh removable battery is included, and so is Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the device, and an infrared sensor is placed on the very top of the LG G5. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed here with LG’s custom UI available on top of it.
The LG G5 comes in Silver, Titan, Gold and Pink color options, though we still don’t know if all those color variants will be available in India or not. Either way, stay tuned for additional LG G5 info, as soon as more India availability news surface, we’ll make sure to let you know.
