LG G5 To Blindside Samsung Galaxy S7 At MWC 2016

By  | 

If you’re excited about the Mobile World Congress (MWC) that’s happening on 22nd February, so is LG. Their flagship smartphone – the LG G5 – is highly likely to be releasing during the launch of the show, and it shows that LG is ready to move on from their predecessor, the LG G4, that was released last April.

And like all devices that are yet to be released, these are some of the rumoured tech and specs circling around the tech industry. LG G5 may be sporting a 5.5- or 5.6-inch True HD IPS flexible touchscreen, with a display resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels (and that says a lot, considering only a limited number of current smartphones have it).

It’s likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and a 4GB of RAM. In terms of storage, the LG G5 may be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB internal memory options, and let’s not forget about the microSD slot for storage expansion. It might also be having a full-metal case, ultimately bringing a premium feel to the device.

But perhaps the highlight of all rumours is the eye scanner. You’ve used a fingerprint scanner, took selfies with hand gestures, but you might not have heard about this. That’s because if rumours are true, the LG G5 may be the first smartphone in the world to use this technology; scanning the user’s eye from a distance of 50 centimetres. This could be the next big feature every other tech industry would be toying with, but we’re not too sure about that yet.

Are you looking forward to seeing the LG G5 more than the Samsung Galaxy S7 (since it’s also rumoured to be launched at the MWC)? Which feature do you want to see most, based on all the available rumours? Sound off in the comments below!
