Not long ago, a variant of LG G5 with a model number LG H848 surfaced on the internet unofficially. This variant was allegedly a ‘Lite’ version of the original LG G5 released this February on the MWC 2016. Reportedly this smartphone will be launched in China too as it just received a clearance certificate from TENAA.
The LG G5 Lite features a less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 instead of top of the line SD820 which is featured in the LG G5. SD652 hosts four Cortex-A72 and four A53 cores along with the Adreno 510 GPU. Note that the most powerful GPU available in the market is the Adreno 530. Apart from that, the G5 Lite sports a 5.3″ QHD screen accompanied by 3 GB RAM instead of the 4GB available in its bigger brother. However, LG H848 carries the same innovative modular design, a dual 16MP and 8MP camera setup, 32GB of storage and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Last month another device with a model number ‘H850’ popped up on GFXBench which was followed by a confirmation by an LG Executive. The official then reaffirmed that a variant of LG G5 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 is under consideration. Soon after that, LG went ahead with their decision and listed the H850 for sale on the company’s Panama website. As far as other specifications of this particular LG G5 are concerned, the device will be available in two different RAMs – 3GB and 4 GB. Internal storage capacity amounts to 32 GB. Other specifications of the smartphone are similar to LG G5 with Snapdragon 820 SoC under its hood. Both smartphones will sport 5.3 inch QHD display with 16MP/8MP camera combination. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed while a 2800 mAh battery will provide the juice. It should be noted that SD652 variant will only be available for customers residing in Latin America. Stay tuned for further updates.
