The LG G4 has only been on sale five months, but already here comes word of its successor, the LG G5.
According to a source cited by GforGames, it will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and a 20-megapixel camera.
The improved camera represents a major jump up from the G4's 16-megapixel sensor. The source claims, it will also feature a custom 1/2-inch Sony sensor, as opposed to an off-the-shelf component found in other smartphones.
There's no word on how it would be customised, or what new features it would offer.
The G4 used the Snapdragon 808 system-on-chip, principally because the 810 was plagued with overheating issues. The 820 would provide a most welcome power boost to the G5, and make it more efficient.
Of course, this is just a rumour for now, so take it with a hefty dose of salt. A lot can change in seven months, especially in the fast-moving world of smartphones.
But the same source previously provided accurate information about Apple's A9 chip, so they could be on the money with this one.
