LG G5 visits Geekbench packing Snapdragon 820 and 4GB of RAM

South Korean multinational LG is prepared to launch the G5 at its MWC’s invite-only event. The event will be held on February 21 in Barcelona, Spain. And before the device is officially unveiled, LG G5 has been spotted on Geekbench recently disclosing few of its specs.

The benchmark testings reveal that the company is running extensive tests on its latest smartphone. LG’s enthusiastic invite to the event states:

“Come meet new friends on the playground”

As per the benchmark results, LG G5 is rumored to come with Snapdragon 820 SoC by Qualcomm. Under the hood, the device will pack in 4GB of RAM. The smartphone was listed as model number LGE LG-F700S, which implies that the tested device was meant for SK telecom.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 has been seen in many high-end devices recently. Another trending feature in flagship devices is the inclusion of 4GB RAM. Given these latest trends, it is safe to say that the information revealed in the benchmark tests will hold its ground.

LG G5 is also speculated to come with an all-metal layout. The smartphone will run on Android Marshmallow 6.0.

The handset is also expected to sport edge notifications just like Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, which apparently means that the notifications in G5 will be displayed at the bottom edge of the device, beneath the display.

Previously, LG had mocked Samsung Galaxy S7 for the non-removable battery feature and had assured its users that the new G5 will feature a removable battery. The leaks have also hinted at 20MP primary shooter and 8MP selfie snapper.

The company has confirmed that LG G5 will also sport the always-on feature.

According to LG:

“Users of the case can check the time, date and notifications on the Always-on Display of the yet unseen LG G5 even with the cover closed.”

The latest teasers by the company also suggest that LG could opt for OLED screen for its forthcoming device.
