Rumors regarding the new LG G5, aka LG H830, have been pouring in as the MWC event approaches. Couple of days back, GeekBench released a detailed analysis of the awaited LG G5 which revealed a top of the line device. Soon after that LG officially announced an Always on display for its upcoming flagship smartphone. Though this time GFXBench came up with another treat for LG lovers.
According to the latest benchmark test revealed by GFXBench, we should expect another variant of LG G5 which could be released the very same day, i.e 21st February. Apparently this variant for the G5 might be it’s ‘lite’ version.
As you can see, the LG G5 lite will feature a 3GB RAM and a 5.3″ Quad HD (1440 x 2560). It is also expected to be packed with 32GB of internal storage capability. Why might it be called a ‘lite’ version you say? Well that owes to the alleged processor of the device. As mentioned in the Benchmark test, the variant will feature Qualcomm’s mid-range octa-core Snapdragon 625 which is in no way competitive to the Snapdragon 820 being featured in the LG G5.
One baffling anomaly in the test is its claim that the LG G5 lite will be powered by the Android KitKat 4.4. This definitely wont be the case as the device will surely feature the latest Marshmallow 6.0.1. Although benchmark results are not accurate, they still provide a close analysis of a device.
Other than that we already know that LG G5 and its probable competitor Samsung Galaxy S7 will be equipped with same components. For example, both phones are featuring 4 GB RAM along with quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. Other rumors include a 5.6-inch QHD display, metal design with a removable battery, and 20MP rear camera with manual settings. Furthermore, both of them will feature an Always on Display which will allow its users to check the current date/time and various notifications like unread messages, missed calls and unread emails without actually unlocking the phone first.
Last but not the least, all three devices mentioned above will definitely be announced with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1. Marshmallow was released last year with numerous new goodies including a completely new app drawer, redesigned app permissions, Doze, and Google Now on Tap.
