Rumored specs for the LG G5 surface, include SD-820 SoC and 21MP rear camera
A Weibo poster has revealed what he says are some of the specs for the LG G5. LG has released two high-end phones this year with the LG G4 and the LG V10, although the former is considered the flagship model. We suggest reading this with your cynical eye, and you should certainly take this information with the proverbial grain of salt.

According to the tipster, who goes by the name of Zealer, the LG G5 will feature a 5.6-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC will be under the hood, containing a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. There will be a 21MP camera on back, along with an 8MP front-facing camera. Previous rumors call for the LG G5 to employ an iris scanner.

The LG G5 is expected to be unveiled in February. That is the same month when Samsung is expected to take the wraps off of the Samsung Galaxy S7. In case you were wondering, the LG G4 was unveiled on April 28th of this year.

Thanks for the tip!

That's Only If The Screen To Body Ratio Is Lower Than 80% But Lg Can Pull Off A High Ratio I Know It.

I doubt it's going to be that big. Unless LG keeps the trend of fine ass bezels going.

That's what LG fails to acknowledge, that while phablets are a regular thing these days, the majority still prefer a compact flagship. I love how Sony is doing it, 4.7", 5.2" and 5.5" flagships. Everyone should follow their lead when it comes to screen sizes.

Samsung also nailed it in 2014, when they had the S5, Alpha and Note 4 at 5'1", 4'7" and 5'7" respectively... would have been nice if they had adopted a similar strategy this year. But oh well... I do agree with you though: compact, standard and phablet flagships should be the line up for all these manufactures - with little to no compromises between them.

when you say "I do agree with you though: compact, standard and phablet flagships should be the line up for all these manufactures - with little to no compromises between them." Do you mean sony?

The alpha could've been a lot better though, it seemed more like a troll iPhone phone

5,6" is perfect with LG's bezels.

5.6 is not too big if they will keep the bezel at minimum

Hopefully it comes with Android M

Why wouldn't it? LG is very quick with new a versions for new phones. And doubt they would let a flagship down before it's released.

Ok cool. The last time I had an Android device was for work. I didnt and still dont keep up with much. All I read the other day was that only 0.05% of M are on eligible devices.... Kinda sad to think considering my long anticipated S7 purchase coming up, and Android N (not a typo).

The sensor might be the same or similar Exmor RS sensors from the Z5 family... Who knows. I expect flagships next year to have big sensors of at least 1/2.4 and nice aperture

LG G Flex 2 is high-end Otherwise, I look forward to g5 hope that it will be in the body of 5.2 "or 5.3" That date was to be expected, they want to compete s7, g4 was not great, at least g5 could be revolutionary GO LG GO

If they make it any better than the V10, then I'll surely get it, since the V10 is already a great phone.

14. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I just hope they actually make it better than the G3, G4, and the V10 because so far neither phone haven't been that great. V10 is a step in the right direction.

The only thing the V10 is missing really is a better processor and a good diet. The SD820 should solve one. Now if they can keep the design without making it feel and look so god damn big, I think they have a winner.

so big?? almost the exact dimensions and weight of the Iphone 6s+ AND ALSO THE NEXUS 6P. Do you feel that they are too big also?

22. Taters

Posts: 6474; Member since: Jan 28, 2013

The 6s + definitely. Nexus 6p could be smaller too. The Note 5 size if you have a stylus and the gs6 edge plus size if dont is what LG should aim for. Thickness and feel matters too, the V10 seems as bulky as a CAT phone or an active phone. The Note 5 is like the same size as the LG G4 basically. So LG should go back to what they did with the G2 but keep the same material as the V10.

It may look bulky but it doesn't feel as bad as it may look, coming from someone with small hands. The way I see it, the V10 is the luxury pick-up truck of smartphones. I doubt anyone who owns one is ashamed of its size, rather they take pride in it, as it is also a visual testament of its durability and class.

All of those phones have been progressively better. The V10 is great, but still has areas to improve and even then it's a very satisfying phone. Therefore, if they continued to refine their phones I would surely enjoy them as well.

Neither of those phones have been that must work for PhoneArena saying something like that.
