The successor of LG G4 which is supposed to be released somewhere around April next year. With that said the specs of LG G5 leaked yesterday. The leaked images and details were given on Reddit by the user mobile_user and theses details look promising. The first image on the Reddit post shows off the phone with dual camera, fingerprint sensor and a heart rate sensor, in between the camera and the flash.
The Reddit user might have got his hand on a prototype version of the phone and mentions the following features:
- 5.3-inch Quad HD display
- Metal body
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820
- 3GB RAM
- 16MP and 8MP rear cameras
- 8MP front camera
- Heart rate sensor plus laser autofocus on back
- IR blaster on the top
- Speakers in the bottom
- USB Type-C
- Pressure sensor
- Fingerprint sensor (same as LG V10)
It is also mentioned that the microSD card and SIM slot are on the right edge of the device, also hinting toward the similar specs of LG V10 with a larger display. It is until the official release we won’t know the exact LG G5 specs.
The battery is most likely non-removable giving us hints to wireless charging. The leaker also mentioned that the OS feels more like Stock Android though it is the early build. He also humorously mentions the absence of the phone being waterproof. Considering the latest iPhones which were secretly made waterproof, LG might have added the pressure sensor for the display encouraging 3D Touch of its own. And it is about time that everyone adopt the USB Type-C and fast charging. Let us know what you think of these leaks.
