LG looks to create yet another amazing smartphone in 2016 as the fifth installment called the LG G5 aims to impress. The LG G series selling smartphones have been voted as fan favorites year after year, and with the upcoming release of the G5, LG looks to continue the trend. With some amazing changes in store for us, the LG G5 release is expected to be yet another return as one of the year’s best.
Extending upon the concept of the G4, the LG G5 concept looks to integrate much of the same, but with a little more. The idea of pushing the envelope is expected to give consumers just what they’ve been asking for, and maybe even a surprise. Despite the fact that we are still quite a while away from seeing the new LG G5 specs, the rumors that are becoming more and more persistent are pointing to some huge changes.
The following rumors on the LG G5 rumors, specs, features, price, presales, and release date info will give you a glimpse of what to expect upon the launch day in 2016.
LG G5 Rumors
[AdSense-A]It’s amazing when looking at the focus of the next best thing with so much time left before reality hits, and this is where the current LG G5 rumors begin to take shape. As LG has created one of the top selling smartphone series of all-time, the current rumors taking shape looks like something bigger, better, faster, more efficient, and much more practical is on the way with the new LG G5.
We have been hearing numerous LG G5 rumors of more than one version coming in June of 2016. As LG looks to increase their market share and give consumers yet another option, there may actually be three versions of the best-selling series on the way. A plastic version of the LG G5, a standard version, and a premium version with a full bendable display are highly likely.
Aside from the phone itself, LG rumors point to more of a focus with other peripherals being able to interface with the LG G5 without the use of Bluetooth technology. Owners of an LG G smartwatch for instance will be able to use all the same features of the watch including calling, texting, and emailing without having to be connected to a phone itself. This could be made possible with a SD card slot in the watch itself, and should be integrated when the LG G5 releases in 2016.
Other LG G5 rumors that we have been hearing is the use of 5G connectivity. As we continue to enjoy all the features of 4G connectivity, imagine what double the download speeds and better worldwide coverage that the rumored 5G technology will bring. The technology is in place, but we are uncertain if the new 5G wireless technology will be in place in time for the LG G5 release.
LG G5 Specifications
[AdSense-A]Some of the most amazing aspects of things to come are the rumors on the LG G5 specifications. Some would say that LG needs to do little to improve on the specs of the LG G4, but remaining status quo is something that LG is not likely to do.
Some of LG G5 specs that we have been hearing about is a 4100 mAh battery, 20 MP front-facing camera, 5 MP rear-facing camera, a 2.9 ghz octa-core processor, and a 4K screen display. The following is a complete breakdown of what we are expecting to see in the specs of the LG G5.

LG G5 Features
Many new LG G5 features are on the way, but confirming the latest details will surely take time. We have hearing many rumors of an integrated fingerprint scanner running side by side with a retina eye scanner that would give users double the security at the same time. Also, three versions have been rumored as a plastic variant, full metal body, and a bendable display have all been rumored to have unique LG G5 features. A 3d camera was something we were hoping to see with the LG G4, and is now something that is almost certain in the LG G4 camera features.
We will bring in all the rumors and confirmations of the features of the LG G5 when more information becomes available.
LG G5 Concept
Much of the LG G5 concept focuses on giving consumers just what they are wanting. LG has consistently given consumers a smartphone that has all the features they need, and for a price they are willing to pay. LG looks to continue the trends of the successful concept of the current model, and build upon it at the same time. The new concept looks to improve on the speed, performance, efficiency, durability, color options, pricing points, and multi-tasking capabilities.
If the current rumors on a premium version with a bendable display hold-true, then this would give consumers yet one more reason to jump on board. As many smartphone manufacturers look to integrate the phone’s features with other peripherals such as a tablet or smartwatch, you can expect that LG will do the same with the G5 concept.
Stand-alone features from the current LG G Gear watch will become a huge focal point as the idea to maintain the same functions without having to have your phone on you at all times will be a huge enhancement. As technology changes, LG is expected to yet again lead the way in 2016.
LG G5 Price
[AdSense-A]With the huge changes that we’re expecting LG to put into the new concept, we can expect to see a slight increase in the overall LG G5 price. The good news is that all the top cell carriers will get in on the release, especially considering the huge sales expectations that the G5 will surely get. Presumably, the price will still remain competitive with other flagship releases such as the newest HTC smartphone, Galaxy S7, and Apple iPhone 7.
As we get closer to the inevitable release date, the consumer demand will increase even more which will drive down the release day availability as well as the importance of presales. Here in the US, all four of the cell phone carriers are expected to carry the release as it’s almost certain that Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile will all state their intentions well before the release and US Cellular will be soon to follow.
It’s still unknown what the price of the LG G5 through Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile will be on launch day, but you can expect there to be some significant pricing advantages from each. We expect to see the no money down option and a small monthly payment plan in exchange for having to pay a full-purchase LG G5 US price that will be nearly $900.
The following are the latest rumors on the price of the LG G5 in many of the larger markets worldwide.

LG G5 Presales
LG G5 presales are expected to start approximately 2-3 weeks before the official release date. When we get the official announcement you can expect to see more on the availability of presales along with when and where to get them. Due to the fact that the popularity is already so high with still awhile to go, taking advantage of cell carrier presales will give you the best chance of getting an LG G5 on launch day.
In some larger markets, especially South Korea, China, and here in the US, we are expecting to see record setting opening day sales which would mean it will be even more important to take advantage of LG G5 presales.
LG G5 Release Date
The LG G5 release date is expected to kick off during the month of June which is great timing when looking at some other flagship releases in 2016. Apple intends on launching the Apple iPhone 7 later in the year, and Samsung has three flagship releases during the same year.
Although the phone has yet to be officially announced by LG, the current rumors on the release date coincide with previous LG G releases which are separated with one year between each. If LG looks to remain consistent to maintain many consumer cell phone contracts, maintaining the June release would be quite fitting.
