During a news conference in Seoul, LG’s mobile chief Cho Juno confirmed that the company will release its next flagship smartphone a day ahead of the official opening of the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona.
In the recent past, LG skipped the Mobile World Congress convention and unveiled its flagship smartphones at a dedicated event mid-year, a few months after key rival Samsung unveiled its flagship Galaxy smartphone. However this year, LG plans to take Samsung’s Galaxy S7 head-on at MWC with the G5.
According to rumors, the G5 will be the company’s first Android flagship to feature a truly premium metal unibody design and could come with the same secondary ticker display on top as the V10. It is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and pack a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, dual-camera setup at the rear, and a fingerprint scanner.
