Tech aficionados may have just heard about the Always On Display mode on the Samsung Galaxy S7 lineup and now comes in the word that the LG G5 may be arriving with a similar feature.
While there is no statement from Samsung about the feature on its upcoming flagship, there’s an official confirmation about LG G5 with Always On Display Mode. And that isn’t all, tech aficionados have also been given a glimpse at what the much-talked about device may look like.
In a Facebook post, the company shared that it will indeed be launching its 2016 flagship at the event on 21st February, ahead of the Mobile World Congress kicking off on the 22nd February. The device will be featuring the “Always On” display mode, giving users a quick view of notifications right from the home screen without having to actually turn on the display completely.
As noted by Phone Arena, this won’t be the first time that such a feature will be introduced, the version of the “Always On” display mode dubbed as the “Active Display” has been seen on Motorola handsets. Additionally, the latest Nexus devices also boast of a feature called “Ambient Display.” The GIF shared by LG on their page revealing this particular capability also teases the LG G5 outline. It is clear that the rumours have had much truth to them since the layout sits in well with many renders we have seen earlier. The G5 is expected to arrive with radical design changes in all its metal glory. And it will offer a dual primary snapper as well as a fingerprint scanner amongst other neat features.
With just over a week to go for the D-day to arrive, the wait isn’t long before fans get to hear what the company exactly has in store for everyone. Keep coming back for more updates, rumours and speculations about the handset.
