LG will unveil the G5 at Mobile World Congress later this month and already the hype train has left the station. Always On display is the biggest official tease so far, but the unofficial leaks are starting to come now as well with the G5 reportedly stopping past GeekBench to compare itself to the competition.
The benchmarks hold no real surprises for anyone keeping up to date with trends in hardware on high-end phones. The entry on Geekbench for an LG-F700S, points to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM, a very respectable hardware spec that should smooth out any software lag that could arise.
The only other piece of information we can glean from the entry is a listing for Android 6.0.1 which will obviously come with LG’s customised UI on top which should be iterated to LG UX 5.0.
Without the Huawei Nexus 6P on the scene, LG’s G4 would have waltzed away with our phone of the year title last year and we expect big things from LG this year. From the rumours, the G5 is shaping up to be a killer phone and we can’t wait to see what LG has to offer when they take the wraps off the phone at MWC.
