Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016) is drawing close, which means LG fans will get to see the much-awaited G5 soon. The upcoming flagship device is said to be different from its predecessors, and reportedly has new design and features.

The South Korean electronics giant is expected to launch the G5 at its scheduled event on 21 February, a day before MWC 2016 kicks off.

According to a report by Shai Mizrachi (via Android Authority), LG G5 will wear a look very different from previous G series devices. A diagram of the device has hinted it will be thinner, taller and wider than LG G4, with 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2mm dimensions. 

LG G5's model number is LG-H830, and it will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed, reported Napidroid (via PhoneArena) citing leaks by HTTP User Agent. 

LG is tight-lipped on its upcoming flagship device, but leaks have revealed almost all of its major specifications. The G5 is expected to sport either a 5.6-inch or 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1440 x 2560 pixels (538 ppi pixel density) resolution.

The device is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and Adreno 530 GPU, run Android 6.0 Marshmallow and come packed with 32GB internal memory expandable up to 128 GB and 3GB RAM. It is also reportedly coming with a 16MP rear camera, 8 MP secondary snapper and a Li-Ion 3,000mAh battery.
