Just a few days ago, LG confirmed to launch the flagship smartphone G5 on Feb. 21. Now, the company has released the first teaser, revealing a key feature of the device.
LG Mobile on official Facebook page has posted a GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) revealing that the LG G5 will boast "Always On" display. In the animation clip, we see numerous smartphones lined around in a circular form, go from display-on to off in a domino effect and in the final seconds, the LG G5 lights up with black display showing time, missed call, message, email and calendar notification [Check-out the clip below].
It is a new feature for LG G series phone, but this "Always On" feature was first introduced in Nokia Lumia phones with Windows 8 mobile OS in 2013. Back then, it was called a "Glance" feature. The phone's display lights up on few segments of the screen to show notifications and time, but the rest of the screen stayed dark to save energy. It was later introduced in Motorola's Moto X (2013) and to select Nexus phones via Android Lollipop OS update. Now, finally, it is coming to LG phone.
Other expected features of LG G5 include 5.3-inch QHD (2560x1440p) display with ticker feature (similar to LG V10), Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt memory.
It also expected to house a 16MP camera with 135-degree wide-angle capture ability and an 8MP snapper on the front.
Stay tuned for more updates.
