LG is set to launch its 2016 flagship G5 at a pre-MWC event. The company has teased the smartphone with ‘always-on display’ just ahead of launch. The company has also released Quick Cover officially with active display clearly visible.
The always-on display could mean LG would opt for OLED panel instead on LCD seen on previous G series flagships. Motorola launched its first generation Moto X in 2013 with active display and an OLED display panel.
LG could even launch the phone with LCD panel and give it ability to stay active but it could drain the battery. LG has been pioneering OLED display panels for quite some time.
LG has been struggling among the Android flagship crowd and its G4 in spite of being good had a really lacklustre design. The G5 is set to launch with metal design and an accessory slot which could make way for a user replaceable battery.
