LG G5 to launch February 21st

LG will launch its new flagship G5 smartphone on February 21st, the same day that its major rival Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S7 handset.

LG has released a series of teasers for the handset via social media, as well as launching the hashtag #LGG5 on Twitter.

The phone will be shown off at a special event in Barcelona, aimed to coincide with the annual Mobile World Congress expo being held in the city that week.

While specs have not been revealed, leakers are already having a field day telling everyone what to expect. Evan Blass, of @evleaks fame, says that the LG G5 will come with a secondary screen, fingerprint scanner and dual lens camera.

The screen will come at 5.5–inches while it will also feature a new Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. However, the most exciting rumour focuses on a so–called ‘Magic Slot’ which allow users to add modules.

Although exact details of this function are unclear, it could mean adding various camera lens and VR tools to improve the phone’s performance.
