Let's start with the design, the LG G5 says goodbye to plastic and volume buttons at the back for a modern design between metal and glass. The so-called "modular" design is clean and minimalist, with a slightly curved glass.

The power button is always at the back and includes a fingerprint reader, while the volume buttons are present on the left of the phone. This design allows us to access the microSD port and the removable battery of 2800 mAh, so LG succeeds in the feat of offering a unibody design while maintaining these fundamentals. An infrared port is also present and will be sold in four colors: silver, grey, pink and gold.

You can also see a virtual reality headset that is present, like Samsung's Gear VR, it will allow people to get into this promising industry.


Regarding the screen, for the third consecutive, the LG G5 will have a Quad HD screen (2560×1440) but this time with a diagonal smaller than announced of 5.3 inches, which is smaller than that of the G3 and G4 which was 5.5 inches.

We are entitled to an IPS LCD screen and with its "Always On" function that avoids turning on the entire screen for our notifications, LG promises us an energy saving since they say we turn on our smartphones about 150 times a day.


Like many flagships to be announced at the MWC, the LG G5 is powered by a Snapdragon 820 with four 64-bit cores and an Adreno 530, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB expandable storage via a microSD port. It will obviously run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with the famous LG UX 5.0 overlay. Note the disappearance of the app drawer,which allows LG to get closer to what Apple does.

It doubles the performance compared to its predecessor, the S810 and the Adreno 530 allows a graphic improvement of up to 40% more and 40% more energy savings compared to the previous generation. In addition, the Snapdragon 820 supports the Quick Charge 3.0 and increases the loading speed by 27%.


Regarding the audio part, LG has an aptX HD codec that supports the 24-bit frequency through Bluetooth, which promises a rich and clear sound, even through a wireless connection. LG also confirms its audio partnership with Bang and Olufsen.


As for the camera, we are actually entitled to a dual rear lens,with a lens of 16 MP and an 8 MP. The 16 MP lens has a lens that can go up to a 78-degree angle, while the 8 lens can go up to a wide angle of 135 degrees.

This allows an angle 1.7 times wider than existing cameras, and 15 times wider than what the human eye can detect. This will allow you to photograph more larger buildings, without straying from the object to be photographed.

They will come with a series of software to retouch these photos like Pop-Out Picture, Film Effect and Auto Shot. Pop-out Picture combine images taken by the two lenses to create an image-by-frame effect. Film Effect can apply nine different filters to an image, and Auto Shot automatically captures a selfie when a face is recognized, the front camera is it 8MP.


As for the price it should be around 600 to 700 dollars, but it is not yet official.
