LG have been playing catch up to Samsung for the past years in the smartphone space. Both Korean OEMs are active in identical business models and occasionally, have trespassed on each other’s market territory. LG is hoping to lessen this gap with the release of its most talked smartphone the G5.
The company made known its intentions of challenging its biggest rival with the G5 on the same day that Samsung is to release its newest flagships (S7 and S7 Edge) — at MWC 2016.
Details about the impending LG G5 have been few and far between but the company did tease that the phone will supposedly come with an “always on” display and other rumors directed at the phone suggest that it will feature 3GB of RAM.
Now, a test score from GeekBench has clarified few details that will go down well with LG fans, one of which is the phone will feature a 4GB RAM invalidating previous rumors that suggested 3GB. It is no surprise that the device will feature Qualcomm’s largest creation, the Snapdragon 820 and will ship with the latest Android Marshmellow 6.0.1 out of the box.
Other alleged features include a dual-camera setup, fingerprint scanner as seen on the LG G4, and the company made announcements of a Touch-Enabled quick cover case that will be available during the launch of the LG G5.
