LG G5 release date, specifications roundup: Everything we know so far about the new flagshipReuters

More details of LG G5, which is expected to be released at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016), have surfaced, with the latest leak revealing its model number and the operating system that is expected to come pre-installed.

LG G5's model number is LG-H830 and it will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow, reported Napidroid (via PhoneArena) citing leaks by HTTP User Agent. The claims sound reasonable, as LG G4's model number was LG-H810 and it won't come as a surprise if the flagship device comes pre-installed with the new firmware, as some LG devices have already received it. 

The South Korean electronics giant hasn't confirmed the release date of the G5, but has sent out press invites for an event on 21 February, thus giving a strong hint that it could be announced at the event. It was earlier reported that LG might release the G5 early, that is, before G4 completes a yearly cycle in the market.

LG hasn't revealed specifications of its upcoming flagship device, but reports have claimed it will sport a 5.6-inch or 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1440x2560 pixels (538 ppi pixel density).

Under the hood, LG G5 is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Adreno 530 GPU, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 32GB internal memory expandable up to 128GB, 3GB RAM, 16MP rear camera, 8MP secondary snapper and a Li-Ion 3,000mAh battery.
