Earlier: LG has officially announced that it will launch the G5 smartphone ahead of the MWC 2016 event later this month; the company has sent out the invites for the launch and it happens that Samsung has also locked February 21st for the launch of Next Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones at its Unpacked event. Many rumors and reports suggested that LG might refine the V10’s ticker display which should be interesting. Let’s look at the rumored specifications of the LG G5.

Powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820Soc 64-bit Quad-Core processor with Adreno 530 GPU.
