LG has been sending out invites to multiple publications for its announcement event at MWC 2016. Taking place on the 21st of February, which is a day before the actual beginning of MWC, this could be LG’s first unveiling of its latest device(s) to the eyes of the public.
LG seems to be in a hurry to announce whatever devices it has slated for the event, but it doesn’t want to give too much away. The invite itself is really vague, only showing a wound-up play box with the bold words “play” and “begins” on the side; nothing that indicates the arrival of a smartphone (or smartphones).
If we were to speculate, the word “play” could indicate that the company might be announcing a music-centric device. Or, the play box could contain multiple devices to be unveiled at MWC 2016, although we can’t be sure.
It isn’t confirmed, but the LG G5 might just be the most anticipated smartphone to be announced by LG at MWC 2016. Set to be LG’s next flagship device (after the LG V10 and G4), the G5 is rumoured to be running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. It is also said to run on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow and have 32GB of internal storage.
The display size will supposedly be in the range of 5.3 to 5.6 inches with the resolution most likely being 2K. Also, let’s not rule out the possibility that the LG G5 could inherit the LG V10‘s wide 120-degree dual selfie camera.
Now that the invite is out, only time will tell what LG has in store for us at this year’s MWC. The event will take place one day before MWC, which is happening from the 22nd to the 25th of February 2016.
