LG G5 confirmed to be unveiled on February 21st at MWC 2016

LG has already hinted that the LG G5 will be formally introduced at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, having sent invitations for an event scheduled February 21st

If anyone was having any doubts that the event will bring our first look at LG's first of two flagship smartphones for the year, the manufacturer has now officially confirmed that the LG G5 will make an appearance at the event.

While previous LG G smartphones were sub-premium affairs, it looks like the company will pull out all the stops with this year's iteration. Multiple rumors have suggested that the LG G5 will go right for the premium segment of the smartphone market, with one of them claiming that the handset will be aimed to compete directly against the Samsung Galaxy S7, a handset that will be formally introduced the very same day at MWC 2016.

According to leaks and rumors, the LG G5 will come with a slightly curved all-metal body (which would be a first for an LG flagship), a 5.5 or 5.6-inch display with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels and minimal bezels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM, a fingerprint reader and a dual-camera setup on the back, as well as side-mounted volume buttons. As always, we'll be present at MWC 2016 to bring you all of the first-hand details about this year's crop of flagship smartphones.

Is anyone looking forward to seeing the LG G5 getting unveiled on February 21st?
