A report published by a Korean publication claims LG’s next flagship smartphone the G5 will employ a full metal unibody design, a departure from the polycarbonate build we’ve seen on the company’s flagship Android smartphones so far.
We did see LG move to more premium materials with the recently announced V10, so the new rumor does seem to make sense. Especially when you consider the fact that LG hasn’t been doing too well in terms of sales as far as its flagship smartphones are concerned.
No specific details are available yet, so we will have to wait patiently until more info begins to surface online. For now, all we know is that the G5 will likely be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset and could be equipped with a custom 1/2″ type Sony camera sensor on the back.
