LG Expected To Launch The G5 Alongside New Handsets In An All-new X Sub-brand at MWC 2016

LG is taking its fight with Samsung very seriously and it would seem the company wants to attack their Korean counterpart in all fronts. The  OEM is currently gearing up to releasing its LG G5 which has been teased several times to be a direct competitor to Samsung’s upcoming S7 series. Though this will be a flagship phone packed with high-end features and specs, the company is also planning on launching the entry-level X series.

LG is apparently tagging its X variant as“Specialist” phones because each device will concentrate on a single area for optimal performance.

Two of the first phones in the X line-up are the X-Cam and the X Screen.
