LG G5 release date

Considering the fact that majority of Smartphone companies release new models yearly, the best way to anticipate the release of the next LG G5 is to look at the patterns of release from the previous years. If we can take a look at the past LG G series release, we can be able to effectively predict the release date of the next LG G5. Ostensibly, the LG G2 was launched in September of 2013, LG G3 launched on may the 28th of 2014 and LG G4 launched on 29th the April of 2015. If the history is anything to go by, we can expect LG G5 to be released prior to the summer of 2016.

Price of LG G5

The LG G4 retailed at £520 for the stitched version and £500 for the basic model. In any case, LG tend to increase the prices of smartphones with the release of every new model. In fact, the LG G3 retailed at £480 while the LG G4 retailed at £500 for its basic model. If this is anything to go by, the upcoming LG G5 is expected to retail slightly above the price of LG G4.


With the attractive design of LG G4 especially its eye catching and outstanding stitched leather, we can only anticipate that LG G5 will leave us awed to say the least. Rumours have it that the new LG G5 will ditch the stitched leather back and resort to a full metal unibody design. There are also rumors that we might see a finger print reader on the back of this amazing phone.

Hardware specs

The LG G5 is expected to spot 32GB storage, 3GB RAM and a snapdragon 820 CPU. It’s also expected that magic slot, a new feature, will make it possible  for users to upgrade the phone hardware, make it possible to shoot 360 degrees pictures and ultimately allow for the attachment of a physical QUERTY keyboard.


The LG G4 set the pace with its amazing and outstanding 16 megapixel camera. It’s expected that the LG G5 will build on that and spot a 21 megapixel camera.

Iris scanner

We all know that security is an important feature and is something that people take seriously when seeking to buy a new Smartphone. The LG G5 is anticipated to feature an iris scanner for the purposes of security authentication. This security feature is touted to be secure and superior to the fingerprint recognition.
