The LG G4 came out last year and it showcased an amazing shooter, a sterling display along with other pluses, the latter will soon be cast into the shadows as the LG G5 will steal the limelight. As it is expected, the hearsay regarding the successor is causing frenzy among LG users, this device is said to be divulged at this year’s MWC event in February. If you’re curious to know if the LG G5 will pack superior specs and if it will manage to dethrone the LG G4, check out this analogy.
Design and Display
The LG G4 measures 148.9×76.1mm with a curvy back. The G4 comes with back-end mounted volume knobs and it also tips the scale at 155g. The back can also be removed and you can choose between plastics or leather cases.
The LG G5 on the other hand, is rumored to roll out with a metal chassis ad the back will no longer be curved. The volume knobs will be moved to the side and the iris or fingerprint sensor will also be part of the deal, it will measure 149.4×73.9×8.2mm.
In terms of display, the LG G4 has a 5.5-inch Quad HD resolution while its successor will arrive in two different display sizes, a 5.6-inch one and possibly a 5.3-inch one. The former display will have Quad HD resolution while the smaller variant may have 160x 1040pixels.
Camera, processors, battery & OS
The LG G4 rocks a 16MP back end shooter and an 8MP front one, while the LG G5 is believed to contain a 21MP back end camera unit and an 8MP FFC. One thing is for sure, the overall camera experience with the G5 will reach new levels.
The LG G4 delivers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Users have the microSD support, if you wish to expand the storage. As for the batter, it is a 3000mAh battery unit.
The LG G5 is believed to rock a Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and it will also have 32GB of internal storage. The microSD support will still be included and a USB Type-C might be in the works as well. The battery is believed to be a 2800mAh, it seems that the LG G5 will include a Magic Slot option, meaning that users will be able to link a QWERTY keyboard and an amp to the latter.
As for the OS, the LG G4 is expected to receive the Android M update while the LG G5 will have the new OS on board as soon as it hits the shelves. We’ll see if these assumptions prove to be true, as the upcoming device will be reveled at the MWC event.
