LG rumors: LG G5 may come 1st half of 2016, LG V10 in 2nd half


Leaks are circulating online pertaining to the upcoming flagship from LG, the G5, as well as an LG G Flex 3, and LG V10 successor.

In a translated report from Daum, it said that LG will unveil the new “G series” at the first half of the year, while the “V Series” will be launched at the latter half of 2016.

Consistent with the earlier rumors that said the handset will be released around February to May 2016, the Korean report believed that LG will unveil the G5 on April. On the other hand, the same Korean report said that the LG G Flex 3 is not planned to be announced in the upcoming CES 2016 in January, with the notion that the company may totally abandon making the phone’s sequel.

Once launched, the LG G5 is expected to come in an all-metal body with a 5.5-inch to 6.0-inch screen display. The handset is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip and Adreno 530 for its graphics, along with 4GBRAM and 32GB internal storage. It is expected to upgrade its rear camera to 20 megapixels with laser auto focus and image stabilization features. Aside from these, the upcoming flagship is also rumored to increase its battery size to 3,000 mAh or 4,000 mAh and add on a biometric security iris scanner that can scan up to 50 centimeters away.

Meanwhile, the V10 successor is expected to come in the second half of 2016. In a translated report from Chezasite, it said that the handset will be phablet sized with two displays. This may be the same “secondary ticker display” that International Business Times reported. Aside from this, the new V10 is also anticipated to have ergonomic features that will enable the use of these additional interfaces.

LG is yet to confirm the details pertaining to the handsets.
