February 21st is gearing up to be a busy day for mobile manufacturers. Earlier this week, Samsung teased it will unveil the “next Galaxy” on that day, and now LG is preparing to announce its latest flagship on the 21st.

LG is in no way hiding the fact that the G5 will be unveiled as it sent out a message on Twitter, noting, “#LGG5, February 21st.” The tweet also included a number of images with the number 5, which follows the same teaser of last year with the G4.

As for specs, the G5 is expected to feature a 5.3-inch 1440 x 2560 display, which is slightly smaller than the 5.5-inch G4, and might bring the secondary ticker display that was first released in the V10. The battery is reportedly removable and the camera is tipped to be a 16 MP dual-lens and also sport a dual-LED flash.

    Same teaser last year as the G5? Ian I think you mean the G4

    Well removable-battery enthusiasts – it’s looking more and more like the LG series of phones may well be among the very few choices remaining for you…which are available via retail means.

      Rumors suggest a battery that slides from the bottom of the phone. Kinda like some of the old HTC’s used to be. Not sure how good of a design it’ll be.

      I see it, drop the phone, bottom door flies open, battery goes skidding into traffic and is run over by a bus…

      I am a fan of removable batteries, but I have never had to swap out to a full one during a day.. So I guess I’m a fan of replaceable batteries… And since even my M7’s battery is easy enough to replace, I guess all phones are easy enough to replace the battery.

      Related, hopefully they fix and the garbage that was wrong with the g4..

      Huh? What was wrong with the G4?

    • Iz3man

      My biggest issue is the total lack of responsiveness the touch screen has.. It missed a ridiculous amount of key presses. Had it replaced, same issue with a new handset. It’s in a box in my desk waiting for me to ebay it.. I’m back to using my trusted note 4.

    • Mo Dabbas

      yea, I had that problem as well. They worked on it significantly on android 6.0 (which I’m now trying with the G4). The touch screen responsiveness is way better now. I actually noticed general performance enhancements. Still, the phone is not as snappy as many of it’s competitors. I still get those moments of hiccups in performance. For example, sometimes I press the power button, screen takes a couple or three seconds to turn on. so I think I didn’t press the button well, so repress and screen turns on then off right away. Those kinda stuff. They’re minor, but they should not be there on what is the top of the line for LG.

      Still rocking the M7? I loved mine, a great phone!

    • Iz3man

      I still very much use my M7. The note 4 is a little too big for when I’m on my motorcycle. I justed rooted it and changed the lcd density to 200 installed cm 13 and have been happily using.. These new phones are so beyond our need from a tech side.. most people don’t even have OctaCore laptops and desktops. A snapdragon 820 with 4 gb of ram and the most taxing thing most people use it for is checking facebook… come on….

    After the problems with G3 and G4, not interested with G5.

    • Iz3man

      i’ll say this , My G4 is a hell of a lot more responsive on 6.0 then it ever was on 5.X.X
