LG is all set to announce their new flagship device, LG G5, in the first quarter of 2016. G5 will be the successor of LG G4 which is the flagship device of year 2015. LG G4 was launched in the month of April this year, so it is very much confirmed that G5 will be launched in the month of March or April next year. No doubt that LG will pack G5 with the latest and the fastest hardware that will be available at this time, which points towards Snapdragon 820.
LG will definitely follow up the trend and will finally give up the plastic frame and will adopt a metal body in upcoming G5. According to PhoneArena, LG G5 might come with iris scanning security which is more advance than fingerprint sensor as it will work on the retina scan of eyes. Though it is still not known about the reliability and performance of this technology in day to day usage. So there are many things that will be revealed with the release LG G5. It might have iris scanning technology or might come with regular fingerprint scanning security system.
LG G5 Specifications and Features
G5 is expected to ship with 5.6 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Earlier it was rumored that G5 might come with a flexible OLED panel but now it seems that it will come with a normal IPS display without any curves. It will surely have the best display in coming months with some good color saturation.
It is expected that G5 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with Adreno 530 GPU. When it comes to RAM, G5 might have 4 GB of RAM with 32 GB of internal storage with an option to expand storage via micro SD card. If this is the case then G5 will have Quick Charge 3.0 support that will ensure very fast charging. To be concise, Quick Charge 3.0 is 38% faster than Quick Charge 2.0 technology.
G5 is rumored to sport a 20 MP primary camera along with a 8 MP front camera. The main camera will support laser auto-focus and optical image stabilization with zero shutter lag. There will be a great improvement in terms of camera quality as compared to LG G4.
