LG has unveiled the LG G5 smartphone at its pre-Mobile World Congress LG G5 Day in Barcelona. The LG G5 has a primary 5.3-inch QHD LCD display with 3D Arc Glass on top. It has a full metal unibody construction, and is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, expandable by upto 2TB with microSD cards. It also comes with a dual-lens, 16MP standard and 8MP wide primary camera setup with increased 135-degree wide viewing angle. A 2800mAh battery pack powers the entire setup. The bottom panel of the smartphone slides open to release the battery pack, a neat design innovation by LG.

The Always-On display on the LG G5 stays on the main screen displaying the time, and consumes 0.8% battery each hour.
