There has been lots of talk over the last few weeks regarding the next upcoming event, MWC, which is due to take place in Barcelona. While a sheer majority of the talks revolve around Samsung and the expected arrival of the Galaxy S7, they will not bet the only company in attendance or releasing a new smartphone, or even, releasing a new flagship smartphone for that matter. Earlier this month, LG did begin sending out invites to their MWC event and those invited came with the “Play Begins” tagline. Not to mention, reports also detailed that LG would be unveiling a “major smartphone” at the event.
All of this, of course, did immediately point to LG unveiling the next in line G smartphone, the LG G5. Although, that did seem to be a little up in the air with no real or firm confirmation coming through. In fact, some reports over the last few weeks have suggested that what is supposed to be the LG G5, might not be called the G5 anymore. That however, now looks not to be the case.
LG has just began teasing their MWC press event which is scheduled for Feb 21st and the teaser shown above does clearly note that the LG G5 will be in attendance. In fact, the new teaser comes clearly touting that Feb 21st as “LG G5 Day”. As this is the same day that Samsung are expected to be announcing the Galaxy S7 (and S7 Edge), it can’t be helped to believe that there is a small statement being made with the “LG G5 Day” remark. Either way, LG does now seem to have confirmed that come Feb 21st, along with the Galaxy S7, we will also be seeing the latest G series smartphone from LG being unveiled. One, which if the rumors of a complete design-change, along with a removable base where the battery simply slides out are true, could prove to be an extremely interesting device. With the press event set for 2pm (local time) on Feb 21st, we won’t have too long to find out everything about the LG G5.
