It's now confirmed. LG has finally revealed the unveiling schedule of its upcoming flagship device, the G5, after months of speculation. The device will be released at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016) as expected.
The South Korean electronics giant has sent out invitations for its LG G5 unveiling event, scheduled to take place in Barcelona, Spain, at 14:00 (local time) on 21 February, a day before the MWC 2016 begins. It has also shared a picture post on its Facebook page that reads: "Excitement begins at Barcelona on February 21st. LG G5 Day."
LG hasn't announced release date of its G5 but it is expected to happen in March.
Interestingly, LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 will be announced on the same day, as the latter is also expected to be unveiled on 21 February.
LG hasn't revealed any detail about its next-generation device, but leaks have claimed that it will be bezel-less and would come with a fingerprint reader. It will sport a 5.6-inch or 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a 1,440x2,560 pixels (538 ppi pixel density) and has a dimension of 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2mm.
Under the hood, the G5 is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Adreno 530 GPU, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a 32GB internal memory (expandable up to 128 GB via microSD card), a 3GB RAM, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP secondary snapper and a Li-Ion 3,000mAh battery.
