3D renders allegedly show LG G5
Earlier this January, we came across diagrams that allegedly show the unannounced LG G5. The diagrams showed that LG has moved the volume buttons from the back of the smartphone to the left side. Additionally, the renders showed a device with thinner bezels and a curved back. The curved back is believed to provide a better grip for users. Alleged case renders of LG G5 also surfaced re-confirming that the device’s volume buttons have been moved. They also reveal that the device will feature a fingerprint scanner under the rear-facing camera. Now, new 3D renders of the device have surfaced, giving us another look at the unannounced device.
LG G5 3D renders surface
Techconfigurations created the 3D renders above. The new renders are based on the leaked diagrams and case renders that surfaced in the past. According to the site, the LG G5 will feature a 5.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The front-facing camera is said to be an 8-megapixel snapper that will take care of snapping selfies and video chat. The dual camera setup is said to consist of a 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. This new rear-facing camera setup is said to allow users to change the field of focus after an image is captured. This camera also comes with 4K video recording support and optical image stabilisation. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is a new and more powerful quad-core processor with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. It is said to feature a reversible Type-C USB port. Lastly, it is expected to be 8.2 mm-thick, which is slightly thinner than the LG G4.
Like any unconfirmed report, take this information with a pinch of salt.
An LG press event will be taking place on the 21st of February (a day before Mobile World Congress 2016 kicks off in Barcelona, Spain) where the South Korean phone maker is expected to lift the lid on the LG G5. This is the same day and venue the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut.
