We’ve learned a lot about the unannounced LG G5, thanks to a number of leaks we’ve come across in the past, but what about the device’s model number? A new report claims to have uncovered LG’s next flagship’s model number.
Hungarian-speaking NapiDroid.hu is responsible for leaking the HTTP User Agent data shown above. The information shows an unannounced LG-made device with model number “LG-H830,” which is believed to be none other than the LG G5.
Although this information is unverified, it would make a lot of sense for the LG G5 to bear the “LG-H830” model number. After all, the LG G4’s model number is “LG-H810.”
The User Agent data also confirms that the LG G5 will run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. We’d actually be surprised if it didn’t run the latest version of Android.
Past leaks have revealed that the LG G5 will be clad in metal, unlike the LG G4, which came with a leather back cover. The trade off with metal-clad devices is a non-removable battery. LG is said to have solved this with a new drawer-like mechanism that slides out of the chassis, allowing easy access to the device’s rumoured 2,800 mAh battery. The device is expected to feature a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a secondary screen (resolution of 160 x 1040 pixels) just like that on the LG V10. The secondary screen will show notifications such as battery status, the weather, and the time. It will also display shortcuts that give quick access to apps. There are two types of cameras expected to found on the back of the LG G5 – one is a 16-megapixel sensor and the other will help snap 135-degree wide-angle photos. Laser auto focus, dual LED flash, and a fingerprint scanner is also expected to found on the back. As for the G5’s front-facing camera, the device is expected to feature an 8-megapixel sensor for snapping selfies and video chat. It is said to feature 32 GB of internal storage. Under the hood is expected to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics, coupled with 3 GB of RAM.
LG has sent out invitations to a press event on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain. The LG G5 is expected to make its official debut at the press event. This is the same day the Samsung is expected to lift the lid on its new flagship the Galaxy S7.
