The G5, LG’s flagship smartphone will be released into the market on the 31st of March in many regions across the world, while in others, a little later, like in Latin America for example. However, news has reached us that the latter will receive a different version of the G5.
Prices are still speculative at the moment but on Winfuture.de, a German website, the LG G5 is available for pre-order in Panama and it has different specs with the downgraded model houses a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor inside, unlike the standard LG G5 model which houses a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.
This downgraded G5 model is also available in two variants, with one having 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and the other, 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, implying there will be priced differently.
Both will sport a 5.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution and Always-on feature, a 16-megapixel photo snapper on the rear, LED flash and 4K video recording, laser autofocus, and a secondary 8-megapixel camera on the front for selfie lovers and video callers.
Featuring Quick Charge 3.0 technology, a fingerprint sensor on the back side, a removable battery and powered by a 2,800 mAh battery, the difference in RAM and chipset will therefore be the only difference between the Latin American version and the standard version of the LG G5 as was announced at the Mobile World Congress.
Customers in Latin America will should be on the look out and stay tuned to TDR for all updates on the LG G5.
