Rumor: No LG G Flex 3 at CES 2016, LG G5 arriving in April, sequel to the LG V10 also in the pipeline

LG fans, stop everything you're doing right now and open your ears  - the rumor mill has just churned out an interesting new rumor regarding your favorite smartphone slinger and its 2016 portfolio. According to a piece of information posted on Daum, a South Korean web portal, LG will not unveil a successor to the G Flex 2during CES 2016, which kicks off in roughly three weeks' time. We speculated that the LG G Flex 3 might be announced then, but if the new speculation is to be believed, this might not happen at all. The source does nor mention if the G Flex lineup of curved devices has been scrapped altogether, but we surely hope that this won't be the case.

More importantly, the same source speculates that LG's 2016 flagship, the LG G5, will be unveiled sometime in late April 2016, which corroborates with our expectations for the announcement of the device. Let us elaborate: the LG G4 got official on April 28, 2015, while the LG G3 debuted on May 27, 2014, and if LG is to keep up with this trend, the LG G5 is quite likely to make the rounds in the same time window next year. According to some of the more recent rumors we heard, the LG G5 might turn out to be a metal device that comes with Qualcomm's promising Snapdragon 820 chipset paired with the Adreno 530 GPU, a 5.6-inch Quad HD display (a smidgen bigger than LG G4's 5.5-inch screen), as well as a 21MP camera at the back and a 8MP one up front for your selfie needs. 

Finally, Daum mentions that we should expect a sequel to the dual-screen LG V10 sometime in the second half of 2016. Hopefully LG will learn from the few mistakes it made with the V10 and come up with a sequel that is better in any way. We are not saying that the V10 is a bad device per se, we're just expecting more from LG. Check out our review of the LG V10 to find out why!

As far as the rumors themselves, we advise you to take them with the usual handful of salt and have one in mind.

Thanks for the tip!
