The LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 are two of the most expected handsets in 2016, which will most likely be announced in February 21, 2016. Today we’re going to talk about the rumored specifications that these devices will come with.
Unfortunately, it’s not sure yet how much the LG G5 will measure and will weight. But most likely, LG will retain the floating arc design and will change the material for the back. The previous G4 came in two variants: one with genuine leather and the other one was made of plastic and had a 3D diamond pattern. The Samsung Galaxy S7 will measure 143.4×70.8×6.9mm, but it’s not sure yet how much it will weight. And rumors say that Samsung is in love with the new glass and metal design so it will use it again for the S7.
The LG G5 is expected to come with an IPS LCD display of 5.6-inch that will support a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 525 ppi and it will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The Galaxy S7 will feature a smaller Super AMOLED display of 5.1-inch that will support the same resolution which will give a higher pixel density of 576 ppi and it will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Chipsets, Graphics Cards & RAM
Rumors say that the LG G5 will feature a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset, an Adreno 530 graphics card and 4GB of RAM. The Galaxy S7 will either come with an Exynos 8 Octa 8890 chipset with a Mali-T880 MP12 GOU or a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset that will house an Adreno 530 graphics, and which will be backed by 4GB of RAM.
The LG G5 will have an internal storage of 64GB, but you will be able to expand it up to 200GB using a microSD card. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 will not sport a card slot for storage expansion, but it will be released in three internal storage variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
On the rear side of the LG G5 we will find a 20MP primary camera that will feature autofocus, OIS, LED flash, touch focus, face detection, panorama, HDR and a secondary camera of 8MP will be found on the front side of the device. There are not many reports about primary and secondary cameras that the Galaxy S7 will feature, but there are rumors which say that Samsung will drop the 16 MP camera from the Galaxy S6 and will replace it with a new 12MP sensor.
If rumors prove to be right, the LG G5 will feature a 4100 mAh non-removable battery, which is quite impressive. According to some rumors, the Galaxy S7 will feature a non-removable battery of 3000 mAh.
