LG is supposedly to bid goodbye to its previous design theories. Touted to be different, the much-awaited LG G5 will have a touch-enabled quick cover in addition to a new “always-on” screen feature.
LG describes the quick cover as a unique film that has a glossy metallic finish. Meant to invite a luxurious appeal, the cover is semi permanent, allowing you to receive and dismiss calls and set the alarm, without having to open the case. Thin mesh material used for the cover design helps you to operate some of the phone’s functions with the slightest touch on the cover.
The cover has a window letting you view a small part of the screen without having to open it. No further details on price were mentioned, but everything will be revealed during the LG G5’s launch event at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. The event will take place between Feb. 22 and Feb. 25, reports Engadget. To have a look at the quick cover images, visit here.
NDTV notes down that the LG G5 recently passed the Geekbench benchmarking test and according to its report, the yet-to-arrive phone is expected to include a 5.3-inch QHD display with a ‘Magic Slot’ as part of the physical configuration. A 32GB inbuilt storage capacity sounds great for users wanting to store movies and videos. It will probably run on 4GB of RAM and house Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor. Rumors are doing rounds that the phone will pack a dual rear camera system with 19MP sensor and 135-degree viewing angle. Also, it will feature a ticker display like you noticed on the LG V10.
As stated in one of our earlier reports, LG is planning to forego the vertical placement of auto-focus sensor like on LG G3 and LG G4. This time the sensor will appear horizontally in the upcoming device. Just under the camera, a fingerprint scanner will be installed.
