If the reports are correct, then LG will probably unveil the G5 at the Mobile World Congress 2016. Traditionally, LG has always launched its flagship G-series devices a few months after the MWC. This year however, LG is possibly going to put the G5 in head-to-head competition with the Samsung Galaxy S7, one of the most awaited Flagship Android devices of 2016.
LG knows that the Galaxy S7 is already one of the biggest competitors to the G5 at both the MWC and after sales. It is believed by many that in order to counter Samsung's upcoming flagship, the G5 has been redesigned to a great degree in comparison to previous iterations of the G-series. A "leaked" diagram surfaced recently and if it has any legitimacy to it, then the G5 will have volume buttons on the side, rather than on its back like the G4.
From what has been seen in the diagrams, a 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2 mm metal body may house the power button/fingerprint sensor and a 20 megapixel shooter on the back with a bottom firing mono speaker. The 3.5 mm audio port can be seen on the top while the front of the smartphone may feature a 5.6-inch QHD panel. It should also be powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset seen only in the LeTV Le Max Pro so far. Will these alleged specs be enough for the G5 to give the Galaxy S7 a run for its money? We will soon find out.
