LG confirms G5 launch date set for February 21
Unsurprisingly, LG has confirmed via Twitter that it will announce its upcoming G5 flagship on Sunday, February 21st (the same day as the Samsung Galaxy S7). LG previously sent out invitations to its press event that will take place at MWC 2016, and later confirmed to CNET that the G5 would be launching at that event. What exactly we’ll see at the event we’re not entirely sure, but we do have a few leaked specs and rumored features that we think will be present on the new device.

Thanks to our exclusive leak a few weeks ago, we know the LG G5 will come in a thinner, taller and wider package, along with a redesigned chassis. It’s expected to come with some notable goodies such as a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a 5.6-inch Quad HD display, an iris scanner, a secondary “ticker” display like what’s found on the LG V10, as well as a “Magic Slot” that can be used with different hardware accessories. Other reports have speculated the device could sport a 16MP rear camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage.
We won’t be entirely sure what the G5 will bring us until the 21st, so stay tuned as we bring you the best Android coverage at MWC 2016.See also: LG G5 rumor roundup: release date, specs, and features
